You only work for three weeks of the year, you’ll stay for free at a five-star resort in Dubai and being older and tubby is a bonus.
What is this dream job? Well, Fairmont The Palm is looking round the world for a Santa to step into the role this December.
The Palm Jumeirah resort has launched a global talent hunt to find the perfect Santa Claus. Key skills include being compatible with elves, having a certain-sized waistline and white beard. Yes, they’ve made a list and they’re checking it twice and the job description and responsibilities are pretty hilarious:
- Must ooze festive flair and cheerfulness
- Must have a jolly disposition and spontaneously sing festive songs when he feels necessary.
- Drinking glasses of milk and a plate of cookies every evening
- Spontaneous ‘sand ball’ and ‘sand angel’ making on the beach
Applicants who think they’d make a cracking Claus should upload a 30-second video application tagging #MyDubaiSanta #FairmontThePalm to a public Instagram or Facebook account by 30th October and say why they’d make a perfect Santa.
Oh, and you can totally bring a friend. The lucky Papa Noel AND a guest will win an all-inclusive trip to Dubai, staying at Fairmont The Palm for three weeks between 5th and 26th December.
