  • Online voting will then open.
  • The 3 finalists in each city with the most votes will be invited to attend a face-to-face interview and 1 successful candidate will be appointed in each city to do South Africa’s Laziest Summer Job. Simple as that.
  • The closing date is on 1 November 2017 at midnight.

And where is your ‘office?’

The chosen applicant in each city will spend their 8-hour work day stationed at a public venue with a beautiful garden. Daily work tasks include languishing in a deck chair, picnicking with mates, surfing social media, socializing, and generally having fun. All this, while the Husqvarna Automower® does all the work nearby and provides a perfect lawn for you.
