Tesco receive 100 applications for the position of 'Christmas Lights Untangler'

A Tesco job advert for a “Christmas light untangler” has received over 100 applications within a week.

The role is to form part of Tesco’s first Christmas light untangling service in Wrexham and the retailer said the successful individual would need to be “enthusiastic” and able to untangle three metres of Christmas lights in under three minutes.

Scrooges and Grinches need not apply, as the ideal candidate has to be passionate about Christmas, as well as being patient – very, very patient - as they will be expected to untangle metres of lights every day for their customers.

The Tesco spokesman said: “We’re delighted by the number of applications we’ve received for the new light untangler job role, with more than 100 to date.”

It’ll be busy work for the successful untangler, with a typical day involving unpicking around 60 sets of lights, Tesco said.
