Durham University Student Given ‘The Best Job in the World’
- June 5, 2014 By Nemanja L. -
Ollie Silverton, a student from England, has been chosen as the winner of Titan Bet’s the Best Job in the World competition, which has seen him earn an exclusive contract from the highly rated bookmaker to be their correspondent at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The Durham University sports student, who completed his final exam just a couple of days ago, has beaten off competition from hundreds of Titan Bet customers to win the interesting competition and receive some amazing prizes.
‘The Best Job in the World’ Perks and Benefits
Titan Bet has covered his return flights to Brazil, hotel accommodation for 33 nights as well as tickets to eight World Cup matches, while Silverton will also earn a £4,000 per month salary. Other prizes include a high-end smartphone, laptop and a Go-Pro camera.
He is in turn required to write match previews, blog about the competition, film interviews with fans and players as well as tweet live from eight matches that he will attend, semi-finals and final included.
Titan Bet spokesman Russell Yershon broke the news to Silverton during a live interview, as the winner of the competition believed he was being interviewed as just one of the persons shortlisted for the job.
“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. He even created his own website and knows sport and betting inside out. He’s the ideal candidate,” Yershon said.
Silverton, who is considering his options after graduating from Durham University, believes the trip to Brazil will be a life-changing experience as he has yet to decide what he wants to do in life.
The 21-year-old will celebrate his birthday just a day ahead of the 2014 World Cup final and no doubt the opportunity to watch the title decider live at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro will be the best present he could have imagined.
