Want to work part time? Love cool tech? Enjoy breaking stuff?

If you answered yes to all of the above then this might be the job for you. A mobile phone comparison site is seeking a new candidate to ‘test the latest mobile phones to destruction’ all in the name of helping customers make better buying decisions.

Brandon Ackroyd, Head of Customer Insight at TigerMobiles.com, said: "This probably the most unusual role we have ever recruited for but it’s also one of the most important. It’s imperative that our customers get the low down on the latest smartphones and how they stack up in real world scenarios.”

“Whoever is handed this new role will essentially be paid to test out the smartphones to the extreme – nights out, hikes in the country, drop tests in the bath, nothing is off limits. With an attractive pro rata salary and the ability to work from anywhere in the UK this role is ideal for anyone after part time work or students looking to help pay their fees.”

The job description states that the successful applicant will also receive an all-expenses paid night out and a free ‘cheeky nandos’ for every smartphone they test.

As well as general day to day use the tester will also be encouraged to take things to the extreme such as drop tests and water damage in order to research some ‘worst case’ scenarios.

The job requirements reveal the company wants their new team member to take the latest smart phones and put them through their paces in everyday situations; thrown across a nightclub dancefloor, dropped in a vindaloo at 3am or letting a sticky toddler get hold of it.

It’s not all fun and games though; whoever lands the role will have to provide a full written review of their experiences with the device and provide relevant pictures for publication on the Tiger Mobiles blog.

The workload is expected to be between 6 and 10 phones per year, with very flexible working hours, the ability to work from anywhere in the UK and a pro rata salary of an impressive £36,500 per annum.

The smartphones for testing are provided free of charge for the review and a company smartphone to take pictures of the review handset is also provided.

Ackroyd added: “We don’t care whether our destruction tester returns the phone to us in bits or as good as new as long as it has been tested to the extreme. We want to hear from people with a passion for mobile phones and if you have a history of breaking or dropping them that’s even better!”

About the Vacancy:

• Wanna work part time?
• Love cool tech?
• Enjoy breaking stuff?
• Able to destroy a tank simply by looking at it?
• Fancy a cheeky Nandos and a free night out for every phone you review?

If you answered yes to all of the above, then we want you. Here at TigerMobiles.com we’re tired of boring mobile phone reviews, so we’re looking for something a bit different. And more explody. With possible fire. Whatever. We’re not foolish enough to try this ourselves, so we’re looking for a test subject (no, team member, sorry) to come do it for us. It’s probably not that dangerous (although the word destruction does appear in the job title, so…).

We want you to take the latest smart phones and put them through their paces in real world scenarios. Drop them in the bath, stomp them in the mosh pit, accidentally dip them in your Chicken Vindaloo (hey, top end phones are thin, they’re almost as thin as a naan, right?). Whatever, we don’t care. We want to know how these phones stand up to real life challenges. That means that you get one expenses paid night out plus a meal (we don’t want you to starve) per phone reviewed. And you’ll be reviewing between six and ten phones per year.

Our readers aren't interested in how much RAM they’re getting (well, they are a bit, but your part’s more exciting). They’re interested in how easy it is to smash a screen, if their pricey gadget can be cleaned. They want to know what will happen to their £600 mobile when a sticky toddler with a penchant for pyromania gets hold of it (note: do not involve toddlers please, child labour laws are too complicated for us).

Your Responsibilities:

• Test the latest mobiles in a range of real life situations (we don’t care if you drink on the job, in fact, we encourage it)

• Write up a review so we can publish it on our blog (you probably shouldn't drink for this bit though)

Our Ideal Candidate:

• Thinks mobile tech is the sh… um… is the it… wait… is very cool indeed

• Has a long history of destruction, particularly in the field of mobile phones (though extra points if you’ve destroyed a small country, anything concrete based, or an original Nokia)

• Spends lots of time outdoors (forests, mountains, back alleys, garden sheds, we’re not picky)

• Enjoys a drink or two (or ten or fifteen) on a Friday night

• Has good written and spoken English and great organisational skills

• Is experienced with Microsoft Word and other word processing programmes (there has to be some boring part to the job)

You get flexible working hours, and can work from anywhere in the UK. You might need to come to the company office in Leeds (which is nowhere near as bad as you may have heard, it’s quite nice really), but we’ll reimburse your travel expenses.

We’ll give you a company phone for taking pictures and notes (please attempt NOT to destroy this one). You’ll also get the latest phones to review for free, which you can return to us in bits, we don’t care as long as it’s been thoroughly tested in real world situations (you do have to return it though, and blood or bodily fluids need to be removed because we’re squeamish).

You’ll be paid a whopping £36,500 pro rata for the pleasure of destroying stuff, so a competitive salary, perfect for a student looking to get cash and do other stuff at the same time (like, you know, study). No degree is required- we don’t hire based on University education (unless your degree is in Destruction, which we’re guessing it’s not).

The vacancy will be closed as soon as sufficient applicants have been received. To apply for the role of mobile phone destruction tester please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
