Are you to the manor born?

Something for the weekend: For those of you meant for the finer things in life, how about applying for the role of a mansion tester?

According to online conveyancer My Home Move Conveyancing, all that is required of the successful candidate is the ability to live and report on their experience of luxury living in the Grade II listed Manor Holcombe in Somerset (pictured) and put their online conveyancing services to the test. Oh, and the successful applicant also gets paid £500.

The role of mansion tester comes with some pretty impressive employee benefits, with the eight bedroom Georgian mansion​ offering its own private gym, a heated swimming pool, games room, hot tub and a treehouse. If you find you are struggling with the stresses and strains of luxury living, you can always take a leisurely walk in the landscaped grounds.

Dev Malle, chief business development officer at My Home Move Conveyancing, said: “Buying a new house is an incredibly exciting experience, but it can also be quite daunting – it can be one of the biggest purchases you’ll make and therefore it’s important to find someone you can trust to help guide you through the process.

“That’s why we wanted to put our expertise to the test, as well as giving prospective house-hunters a little taste of luxury as they review our online service, all while getting paid to do so. After such a challenging year, we’d like to invite anyone who fancies a break in one of Britain’s most stunning properties to apply, and become our mansion tester!”

Too good to be true? Well, there is one drawback for those looking for a job which offers long-term prospects – the post is only for two days.

Here at Employee Benefits, we believe every person’s home is a castle – in a manor of speaking. However, whilst we are fully supportive of a bit of luxury living, we do caution against anyone throwing in their full-time job for two days of glamour, as that could prove chateau-strophic for their career.
