How to get paid $200 a day to nap

If you're forever hitting the snooze button or are tucked up in bed by 9pm, listen up as you can now get paid while you sleep.

A curtain company is looking to hire someone to snooze, and they'll pay you £1500 ($A2983) for a few night's kip.

Hillarys in the UK is looking for a "sleep executive" to test out different sleeping conditions and report back on the optimum snoozing set-up.

The lucky person will have to kip with varying light and noise disturbances while wearing a monitor and report back on their quality of sleep.

"The experiment will look at how light and sound can disrupt sleep. We will test this by having a candidate sleep in different conditions, including the use of blackout curtains and varying light and sound," the company said.

"The entrant will then be asked to wear a sleep monitoring device during their sleep so we can determine how the different conditions affects them during their sleep."

Hillarys, which make blinds and curtains, will pay the lucky snoozer a salary of £24,000 ($A47,733) pro-rata, which works out at £1428.57 ($A2841) for 15 days work.

Hopefuls have until April 9 to apply for the role, and you need to convince the firm you're the ideal person for the job.

The experiment takes place at their headquarters in Nottingham, and they'll cover travel expenses.

"Sleep is so important, and many might not appreciate how even a slither of light can disrupt your much-needed seven hours," Hillarys interiors expert Lucy Askew said.

"We're looking forward to getting the new sleep executive on-board and seeing the findings of this experiment."
