6 weird jobs you probably never knew existed

By Lauren Buck on 30-05-2018

Who says that a job needs to involve doing the same tasks and sitting at a desk from 9-5 every day? There's no need to be in a boring job when there are so many and wonderful ones. It may not seem believable, but there are plenty of jobs out there which you'll want to wake up early for. Everything from styling food, warming beds and inspecting crisps. Let's take a look at 6 of the weirdest jobs out there.

Do you hate getting out of bed in the morning? Well, a professional bed warmer may be the perfect job for you. There's not really much to the job description, all you have to do is simply ensure that all beds in the hotel are nice and cosy for the guests. You have to wear a special hygienic sleepsuit too. We're guessing that these jobs are most likely offered in extremely posh hotels. £16K a year for staying bed doesn't sound too bad, does it?

This next job doesn't sound too cheery, but if you're good at acting this would be an easy £45 per hour. A professional mourner is a job which is particularly popular in China, some African and Middle Eastern countries and even the UK. The role involves attending funerals to increase numbers and you're required to cry on demand.

Is your favourite pastime spending many hours a day watching your favourite TV shows on Netflix? One lucky employee at Netflix watches TV all day for a job - what a dream. If you like watching all genres of film and TV then this job is perfect for you. The job requires you to watch all of the content before it's put on Netflix for the public to watch. Reviews of all shows are also needed.

If you were out scuba diving, what food would you crave after a busy day? Pizza? There's an underwater hotel in Florida that has employed a scuba diving pizza delivery man. If you're afraid of the water then this isn't the career for you. The scuba diving pizza delivery man travels underwater to deliver pizza to anyone at the hotel. Don't worry about the pizza getting wet, it's stored in a watertight case.

For the big kids out there, have you considered becoming a waterslide tester? For an annual salary of £20K, you have to test lots of new waterslides at various water parks. This sounds like so much fun! As well as testing out the waterslides, you have to rate their "splash factor". Sounds pretty easy, right? You don't need any training for this job, the only requirement is being able to swim.

This could be an interesting one. Fortune cookie writers are needed to write words of wisdom into delicious fortune cookies. You'll need to connect with your inner psyche to create wonderful fortunes which people will love. Lots of fun could be had when creating these fortunes. Just try not to let what you write ruin someone's day!

Maybe it's time for a career change.
