A RESORT in France is offering to pay two lucky candidates $1250 a week to rub sun cream on tourists.

Les Sables d’Olonne, a beach and sailing haunt, is advertising for one man and one woman to rub lotion on guests from mid-July to late August, Timesonline reports.

The resort’s website says applicants must be interest in beach holidays and sun protection, be fluent in English and French, and have an outgoing personality.

In return the winners will be paid 5000 euros ($7333) for six weeks work “on the most beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic”.

The two “creamers,” as they are called in France, will be selected from an internet competition by a jury in June after pre-selection by voting on the internet.

“We are recruiting two young people who will apply creme solaire and above all advise tourists on protection,” Francois Boche, director of the town’s tourist office, said.

The internet site for the creamer jobs is now open and candidates can apply at lejobdelete.com.

The Les Sables d’Olonne is well known for its quirky marketing campaigns. Last year it guaranteed sunny holidays by offering a full refund for people who cancelled reservations because of a bad weather forecast no less than two days before their scheduled arrival.
