Your days might currently be filled with libraries, revision and exams, but your summer could be very different.

You could spend four days in summer getting treated to spa treatments – and getting paid for it. £125 per day, to be exact.

On each spa visit, you'll be offered complimentary food, teas and coffees and a couple of glasses of champagne.

Liking the sound of this? SpaSeekers are offering this opportunity to someone who's savvy with social media. As part of the job, you'd be asked to take photos and videos of your spa visits and share them online.

If you fancy earning £500 this summer to relax and take a few pictures for social media, read on to find out how to get this pretty amazing summer job.

Big lover of Instagram? Here's how you can make money by Instagramming your study notes.

Our tips for choosing the best photo

For this opportunity, you'll need to post a holiday photo on social media to apply (more info below). Here are some tips for choosing a winning pic:

  1. Natural lighting is usually best for photos. When choosing what to post, maybe avoid the mirror selfies and find a photo of you living your best life in the sun.
  2. Think about the background. No matter how good you look, a photo can be ruined if the space behind you looks messy, unclean, or just generally unappealing. For this holiday pic, you want people to see it and think, "I want to go there".
  3. Be original. There may be plenty of other applicants for this role submitting their best hotdogs-or-legs shots at the beach but, if you want to stand out, you should do something different. Let yourself be a little creative – it might just pay off.
  4. Find a picture which expresses who you are. If there's a photo which really conveys your personality, style, quirks or sense of humour, this could be a great choice. 
  5. Do your research. For an idea of the types of photos SpaSeekers are interested in, check out their social media. Don't copy the images they already use, but if you choose a photo which both reflects you and fits in with their social-media style, you could be onto a winner.
