Netflix previously made it onto our list of the five best companies to work for. The business is responsible for encouraging “adult-like” behaviour, which means that a formal travel and expense policy isn’t enforced – you simply need to “act in Netflix’s best interests”.Other perks include one year of paid maternity and paternity leave for new parents, and non-set work hours, which allows workers to come and leave as they please as long as the work is done. With that in mind, Netflix has now seemingly attempted to solidify its place in the employment hall of fame with a recruitment campaign to bring in a “grammaster”, who will earn $2,000 a week during a fortnight of all expenses paid travel. There are six vacancies available for the slot, which will see recruits act as photographers across various film and TV locations across Europe and the Middle East. The content produced will then be featured in a social media campaign on Netflix’s Instagram. As such, the application process will require interested candidates to follow @Netflix and hashtag their top three photos on Instagram with #grammasters3 by 6 March.

“We’re looking for TV & movie fans with a talent for taking pictures. Choose photos that show off your interests or passions,” the company said.“Grammasters will travel for two weeks, visiting the sets of popular shows, films, and even Netflix originals. Earn $2000/week while Netflix handles all travel arrangements.” Applicants must be 21 or over and, of course, have a smartphone that supports Instagram. Some 25 finalists will be chosen on 11 March and notified on the social network, which will lead to a telephone or Skype interview once all of the relevant paperwork has been completed. Real Business is here to help, so if you fancy leaving your business behind for a spell, Instagram can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play. While a big player like Netflix may be using the app to extremes, here’s how Instagram enabled small UK businesses to recruit, grow sales and boost brands. By Zen Terrelonge
