Dream job alert! If you're a big ol' snoozer and love spending as much time in bed as possible then I think this ones for you.

A sleep solution company in India, is looking for the snooziest of snoozers and wants to pay people to sleep for nine hours a day for 100 days.

Wakefit is offering ₹1 lakh (£1,078) to one lucky person to literally sleep on the job.


Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, director and co-founder of Wakefit, said: "We are looking to recruit the best sleepers in the country who are willing to go to any lengths to make sleep a priority in their lives. The Sleep Internship initiative aims to bring back the focus of sleep health by celebrating and applauding people who obsess about sleeping well."

The description reads "Those who can thrive in a slow paced environment, conceptualise and deliver effective strategies on how to get themselves and their team members to sleep deeper and longer. Demonstrated affinity to cosy environments, napping, lazing and lounging will be a bonus."

Sounds like you? Excellent, however there are some basic qualifications needed for this role.


• A completed degree in any field. A history of falling asleep during class will be counted as relevant experience. • We are seeking sleepy self-starters who are motivated enough to stay in bed for at least 8 hours of solid sleep. • Should be able to fall asleep within 10-20 minutes of hitting the pillow. • Strong knowledge and a distinctive point of view on sleep products and how they contribute to better sleep. • Should demonstrate qualities of a team player, when the team is likely to miss their bedtime or likely to indulge in activities that discourage sleep. • Past Experience in sleeping in any kind of environment – irrespective of noise and brightness levels. • A focused and disciplined approach to record and analyse personal sleeping patterns. • Demonstrated track record of prioritising sleep over social media. • Attention to detail and a passion for clean bedsheets, cosy blankets and funky pyjamas.

Cosy blankets and funky PJ's? CHECK! Looks like we're onto a winner here, but the company goes on to explain more specific qualifications, one that separates the weaklings.

• Ability to adhere to strict guidelines of consumption of caffeinated beverages. We prefer candidates who have a taste for Chamomile. • Binge watchers and people with nocturnal tendencies will be at a disadvantage. • A low engagement and low activity on personal social media handles is a bonus. • An innate ability to be laid back and stress free before bedtime.


So if you're a bedtime scroller with a coffee addiction, maybe don't put yourself forward... but it doesn't stop there *INHALES*...

• Snoring will be considered a disadvantage to securing this position. • Lack of interest in content created by major streaming websites. • Alarm snoozers, abilities to sleep through multiple alarms, etc. are preferred. • A low screen time will be your biggest asset. The ideal candidate is one who has the ability to blissfully ignore phone notifications at night. • An active interest in meditative sleep techniques. • An in depth knowledge on the lyrics and tunes of lullabies. Good singing ability is a plus. Knowledge of vernacular lullabies is preferred, but not mandatory.

*EXHALES*... Still feel like you're a good fit? Excellent, you can apply here. Good Luck!
