The role, advertised as a 'Summer Sab-SAR-tical’, will involve a local helping to shape the pub’s event programme.

The lucky candidate will have to take a road trip across the UK, attending a range of ‘fun-filled’ events, and review them thoroughly from the atmosphere and activities, to the food and drink.

All feedback will then be passed on to Greene King.

One pub in Oxfordshire that is taking part is the Kings Arms in Sandford-on-Thames.

Dale Little, general manager at the pub, said: “Events are a great way to bring the community together and there’s nothing better than spending time with family and friends at your local pub, especially over the summer. That’s why we are creating an action-packed summer of events for locals, with help from our first ever official event tester.

“We’re looking for one lucky applicant who will get paid to attend exciting events across the UK to help shape our own entertainment calendar and make Kings Arms’s events the best in the whole country."
