    If you’re sick of hearing your co-workers using these really annoying office phrases, or you’re fed up with trying to impress future employers at interviews, then we’d highly recommend you take a look at this one-off job which requires one individual to travel and drink wine – and get paid to do so.

    Yes, it looks too good to be true, but in an ever-changing world of flexible working and career blending, it’s possible. Thank you, wanderlusty grape Gods.

    Canned wine company Union Wine Co are looking for a ‘Canbassador’ to help promote their products this summer by joining their events team on the road to help show off their goods.

    Which road, you say? The one between Oregon and the East Coast of the United States. The company will need you to stop off at various music festivals, shop openings and outdoor events in their very cool wine bar van to promote the canned Underwood Wine.

    Awesome way to wrap up our NY road trip with @phoeniciaflea. #pinkiesdown #wineinacan #unionontheroad P:@phoeniciaflea

    We like the sound of that.

    The job spec describes the ideal candidate as someone with ‘a good attitude and appreciation of wine’ who can ‘adapt and grow with the company, thinking outside of the bottle.’

    If you’re over 21 and flexible enough to work on the go for long periods of time you’re halfway there. You’ll also need to be able to lift 50 pounds repeatedly and pass their physical exam, and you should also be able to drive a large vehicle.

    So if this sounds like it’s got your name written all over it then hurry up and apply before the deadline on Sunday 7th May.
