It seems the job market isn't all doom and gloom; we've just caught wind of a new job ad for an absolute dream job. Luxury bed linen company Tielle Loves Luxury has just posted a job for a professional, five-star hotel bed tester.

The luxury linen brand, which supplies linen and accessories to five star hotels, will pay the successful applicant to sleep in some of the country's best hotels and report back on their experience. 

According to the job ad , responsibilities will include dozing, snoozing and snuggling. Aside from getting to stay in five-star hotels for free, you'll also get expenses paid and get a fee for every night spent away from home.

The successful applicant will get paid £200 per night as well as travel expenses and will be asked to report back on a number of aspects of their stay including bed comfort, quality of sleep and relaxation factor.

The successful applicant will get to experience the iconic Savoy as well as more boutique hotels like Artist Residence.

They will then be asked to report back on how the linen is experienced by guests in these exclusive settings and make suggestions on how a night's sleep could be improved even further.

The role was created by the brand post-lockdown as the hotel industry slowly reopens and guests expect, more than ever, a faultless experience.

Catherine Morris, managing director at Tielle Love Luxury explains: “As we started to think about our hotels reopening post lockdown, we spotted an opportunity to enhance the expertise within our team. Whilst my colleagues are the best in the business when it comes to linen, quality, responsible sourcing and all-round luxury, we realised that in order to maintain our expert position, we need to really understand what our guests are experiencing on a regular basis and that means walking in their shoes, or, more literally, sleeping in their beds!

“Our new employee will travel the UK spending the night in some of the country’s most prestigious hotels. We’re looking for someone with an exceptional eye for detail, who isn’t afraid to speak their mind and who knows their way around a great hotel room.

“Tielle Love Luxury has worked with five-star hotels for over 30 years but today, it’s not as easy to go on breaks or take that business trip, so when people do, it needs to be nothing short of perfect. Our company’s mission has always been to deliver the best night’s sleep to hotel guests around the world. Employing a five-star bed tester will mean we’ve got someone in our team who is making sure we do just that.”

Alison Vernon, director of Rooms at the Savoy added: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get paid for spending time in some of the world’s most exclusive hotels, we expect Tielle Love Luxury to be inundated with applicants and can’t wait to meet the lucky new employee on their first day, here at the Savoy.”

The new role will commence in 2021 and interested applicants should visit www.tielleloveluxury/win-your-dream-job to apply before 10th December 2020.
