If you need to earn a little extra cash for Christmas, this sounds like a great gig.

Instead of accidentally spending the money you set aside for Christmas presents on mulled wine, you could actually earn money for visiting Christmas markets.

Online exhibition platform is hiring someone as a Christmas Fair Tester – and you will be paid £50 an hour to do it.

You will need to travel around the UK, reviewing Christmas markets in England, Wales and Scotland.

All your travel expenses will be covered and you can even bring a friend with you to each one.

You need to be available to visit at least 10 markets between 6 and 24 December.

The role is open to any member of the public, as long as they are over the age of 18 years old, have a full UK driving license and a passion for all things Christmas-related.

You will be paid to attend each market for one hour and get spending money as well. Accommodation won’t be covered if you decide to stay overnight, though.

The successful candidate must be available to attend a different market up to three times a week, so the job role is perfect for students, retirees, unemployed people or those currently on leave from a full-time position.

The role will be open this week and they hope to choose the tester next week.

Jasmine Eilfield, co-founder and CPO of ExpoCart, said: ‘Christmas markets are one of the most popular attractions in the country, with thousands of people visiting them every day throughout the festive period.

‘So, with our upcoming expansion into the consumer markets and fairs sector, we decided to take advantage of all of the fairs currently running, and do some market research of our own.

‘Obviously we know this is a dream job for a lot of people, so we’re expecting a lot of applications. We’re excited to pick our Christmas Fair Tester and get them enjoying all of the Christmas fairs the UK has to offer!’
