Fancy a job where you travel, eat pizza, watch sports and get paid $50K?

This new dream job likely won’t even feel like work to someone who loves travel, pizza and college sports. Pizza Hut has announced it will pay someone $50,000 to head around the USA to sports championships.

Pizza Hut is seeking a talented new employee to travel to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championships through the 2016-17 season, bringing pizza and energy to games around the country. The “Pizza Hut All-American” will have access to all of the NCAA’s 90 championships.

In the job posting, the company notes that while the NCAA crowns 90 national champions, only a few – from sports like football and basketball – are ever heard about. The successful applicant will head from championship to championship around the county, sharing their journey and “showcasing how Pizza Hut is fuelling fandom and celebrating NCAA championships”.

The perfect person for the job will be outgoing, enthusiastic, savvy on social media and passionate about college sports from basketball, football, bowling, gymnastics and more. And if pizza, sports and travel isn’t enough to entice you, the job also pays $50,000 between 14 November and 30 June. The applicant must be over 21 and be authorised to work in the US.  See the full job description here.
