Hungry Horse, which has pubs in Portsmouth, Portchester, Havant and Hedge End, is looking for a '˜pub-licist'. 

One person will be asked to represent the pub in return for a £500 salary.  As well as drinking, the pub-licist will also be faced with responsibilities that will include, attending entertainment events, watching sports and playing the odd game of darts, pool or snooker.

They will also be required to make a number of visits to their local - in order to provide feedback and recommendations to help make the pub the best in the country.

Each task must be reviewed thoroughly and key feedback provided to management, to help the pub stay ahead of competitors and retain its role as the hub of the community.

The pub-licist must visit their local Hungry Horse pub five times. 

Kieron O'Donnell, general manager at the Shamblehurst Barn, Hedge End, said: '˜Nothing beats the atmosphere and comradery of a local pub '“ and it really is the guests who make it such a great place to be.

'˜We're searching for a pub fanatic who just loves a trip to their local, to become our first ever pub-licist and help us to become the best pub the country.

'˜So, if you fancy taking part in a pub quiz, sipping on a cold beer or watching the big game '“ all while getting paid to do so, then we want to hear from you.'

Interested applicants should visit before Tuesday, November 13.
