A company in Australia has created a new position that will likely send all beer enthusiasts into a frenzy.
The job, titled ‘Chief Clock-Off Officer’, requires the individual to encourage others to finish work early so that they can drink beer with their friends every day of the week.
Think it all sounds too good to be true?
While the job responsibilities may sound like a lot of light-hearted fun, the company behind the concept is entirely serious about hiring someone for the position.
Sydney Beer Co. released the online application for the job a couple of weeks ago, stating that the aim of the position is to promote the ‘Sydney Time’ movement.
According to the job description, the ‘Sydney Time’ movement is all about enjoying the city of Sydney to the full by leaving work early on a daily basis, getting together with friends and drinking beer.
“Are you an avid bar and beer selfie poster? Are you more likely to know where to meet for a beer, than where your next work meeting is?” the advert reads.
“Do you specialise in time away from your desk, enjoying the very best that Sydney has to offer?
“If the answer is a big fat YES to these questions, we want YOU!”
Sydney Beer Co. states that the position of ‘Chief Clock-Off Officer’ is a world first, and will suit a “dynamic afternoon person who reaches peak productivity watching the office clock countdown to that golden beer time.”
The salary for the full-time position is negotiable, and the company has asked that applications be as “creative as you like.”
In addition to encouraging people and businesses to finish the working day early, the job also involves visiting as many pubs in Sydney as possible every week.
While you may enjoy drinking a Heineken or a Corona after a long day’s work, it’s recently been revealed that the world could be facing a beer shortage in future due to climate change.
In a study published in Nature Plants, scientists stated that droughts and heatwaves could lead to a decline in barley growth in Europe, Australia, Asia and the US.
This could lead to the price of beer rising drastically.
