Successful applicants will need to play video games from the gaming bed for at least two hours a week and will be expected to have completed 24 hours over the contract.

In return, employees are expected to complete a review of the bed itself and supply a picture or video of the setup, as well as a product and gaming questionnaire to give Happy Beds an idea of the employee’s gaming habits.

To apply, those of interest are asked to visit the application page here and submit details such as name, address and phone number.

Applicants must be 16+ and be allowed to work in the UK. The applications for this job will need to be submitted by June 29 and the successful applicant will be contacted shortly after.
