Student wins Best Job in the World
Durham University sports student Ollie Silverton has won Titan Bet’s ‘Best Job in the World’.
The 21-year-old from Cambridge will receive an all expenses paid trip to Brazil to cover the World Cup for the bookmakers.
He beat hundreds of applications to the role, which includes return flights to Rio, hotel accommodation for 33 nights, a month’s salary of £4,000 and a range of prizes including a state-of-the-art smartphone, laptop, and Go-Pro camera.
In return he will write, film and upload a series of daily blogs, match previews, analysis, interviews and video diaries with fans, players and celebrities as well as live tweet from eight games including the semi-finals and final.
Silverton said: “I have so many ideas on how I can not only bring the best World Cup coverage but also the most interactive coverage.
“I will be using social media heavily and offering Titan Bet customers the best promotions and offers while I’m in Rio.”
Russell Yershon, spokesman for Titan Bet, added: “Ollie’s infectious personality, broadcasting and social media skills and his overall entry and campaign to win Best Job in the World stood out from the crowd.”
