Bored of your job? Need a new, fulfilling replacement? Look no further. ILoveGin is advertising for a “gintern”.

Yes this is a real thing. The £20,000 a year position would allow you to set your own hours, travelling the UK and parts of Europe, and crucially — sampling gin. Lots of gin. Lovely, lovely gin.

There were over 4,000 applicants for the role, so the company have not yet been able to get through them all. ILoveGin told Bristol Post: “We’re looking to re-start the (vetting) process and hire someone in early 2017.

“We’re looking for an enthusiastic gin-loving intern — ‘Gintern’ as we like to call it — who will be happy to spend their days trying new gins, new mixers, finding new brands to work with, visiting distilleries, pairing gins and “ginspiring” us with their new-found knowledge.

In order to be eligible, you must be:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Live in the UK
  • Hold a driving license
  • Know a good gin and tonic when you taste one
  • Love gin
  • That’s it.
