The job description reads: "Olivia’s prides itself on providing exceptional service to its customers, and understands that sometimes expert insight is required so customers can make informed purchases. We’re also in a fortunate position to be experiencing a huge spike in traffic and sales, which is why we’re recruiting a member of the public to be our first Comfort Connoisseur. 

"It’s certainly not like any other job, because essentially our Comfort Connoisseur will be paid to sleep in luxury beds and daybeds, and feedback to us on their experience."

"As our Comfort Connoisseur you’ll be asked to complete a scorecard for each bed you sleep in, judging the item on its comfort, size, aesthetic and durability, as well as provide written feedback on your general experience."

If you do get the job, you'll be contracted for 10 hours each month, and required to provide written feedback on two beds over this period.

Prospective comfort connoisseurs don't need any previous experience or qualifications, but will need to over 18 or over, not suffer from sleep conditions, have good writing skills, a spare room, and be able to accept deliveries.

The closing date for applications is May 29.
