School-age intern required to test paintball guns

A UK paintball company is on the hunt for a summer intern to test out a new range of ‘low impact’ paintball guns across 75 UK locations with their friends.

UK Paintball has launched the search for a school student to take on the summer role, which would see them transfer skills attained from playing such video games as Fortnite and Call Of Duty to the newly developed role, in order to help with the introduction of low-impact paintball guns.

The new range of child-friendly guns being rolled out across UK Paintball locations around the UK are lighter in weight than standard paintball guns. They fire paintballs at a slower pace and are aimed at younger visitors keen to experience paintball for the first time during the school holidays.

In order to apply for the dream position of UK Paintball’s summer intern, applicants must fit the following criteria:

  • Live in the UK
  • Be aged between 8 and 12 years old
  • Be free on selected dates this summer (July – September 2019) to visit a number of UK Paintball locations and test out the guns at different sites
  • Visit and fill out the application form, stating (in 100 words or less) why they should be chosen as the UK Paintball summer intern

As well gaining free entry for themselves and two friends to UK Paintball sites for the whole of the summer, the new recruit will be paid £100 a week and given the opportunity to claim back travel expenses. Due to the age requirements, they will also be required to bring one parent or responsible adult, aged 18 or over, with them to each site visit.
