Change your day job for one day only and explore the best of Leeds shopping scene.
If you’ve ever thought that you’d make a great personal shopper- but would want to keep all your purchases for yourself, we’ve got the job for you.
An exciting position has opened up for three lucky people in January 2022, who will trade in their day jobs to become a ‘gift card spender’, and go shopping for free- all courtesy of Open gift card.
The company support small businesses across Yorkshire and offer a single gift card that can be spent at just about any independent store in the city. The idea is that the spenders will report back on their shopping experience and in return, have the opportunity to spend £100 at over 80 different stores around the city.
You’ll even get free transport in and out of the city as every gift card comes with a First Bus Day mTicket.
Sounds like a dream job if you ask us.
The company announced their search for staff on Instagram, stating:
“Applications now open for the best job in Leeds (probably). Are you passionate about supporting independent businesses? Do you like the sound of spending a £100 gift card in any of our 80+ partner indies….on us?
“If the answer to the last two questions is yes and yes, we want to hear from you. Open is looking for three gift card testers to take an afternoon or a day out in January, to visit a variety of independent businesses and spend some free £££ – think hair salons, delis, bars, retail stores.”
All you need to do is follow Open on Instagram, then like, comment and share- but make sure to tell your friends to like your comment as the person with the most liked comment will be the lucky shopper chosen for the experience.
