Headquartered in London, HushHush.com is looking to hire a yacht reviewer, who will spend a week on each yacht and create a detailed report of everything they find prior to it being listed on the site. The employment will be on a pro-rata, self-employed basis, and the successful candidate will need to be flexible and available on short notice throughout the year. He or she will be over 21 years old, have a passport and be willing to travel. They will also need to be reliable, hard-working, have an eye for detail and a flair for writing detailed and high-quality reviews.

“You’ll live, sleep, eat and shower on a yacht for a week, but during that week, we’ll need you to test everything on the yacht,” the job advertisement says. “This means every plug socket, door, bed, shower, tap – everything to make sure that the yacht is up to our standards. You will be paid £1000 ($1302) per yacht you review on completion of the week’s stay and the report being received. With the potential to review up to 50 yachts a year, the successful applicant could earn £50k ($65.1k).”
