Team Tactics, a team building company from Kent, are looking to recruit ‘professional cuddlers’ to help run its ‘Cuddle a Co-worker’ scheme.
The unusual role on offer will reward you an attractive salary of £30 per hour.
During the day co-workers will be required to cuddle each other in a variety of different positions and will need to switch partners every two hours.
Each of the cuddling events last eight hours, to mimic a full working day, and each session can accommodation groups ranging from four to 20 people.
Speaking to the Birmingham Live Team Tactics says: “The idea for the event comes after we stumbled upon some science showing that cuddling, and particularly skin on skin contact, promotes Oxytocin and Serotonin release.
“Oxytocin has physical and psychological effects on the brain, including influencing social behaviour and emotion, whilst Serotonin is the hormone which allows humans to feel happiness – so they’re both vital when it comes to emotional bonding.”
The final hour of the day will host a group cuddling session, as well as a conflict resolution session.
Tina Benson, managing director at Team Tactics said: “Team building is at the centre of our business, and we’re always looking for new ways to help employees across the UK become more connected with their colleagues.
“We know it’s something completely new and it might not be for everyone, but the science is already there. We’re just putting it to the test.”
If you think you have what it takes to be a professional cuddler you can apply for the roles here.
