Dangermen with a head for heights and the ability to sing 'acapella' in near darkness are wanted by a quarry.
JW Greaves, the company that owns and operates Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog, is recruiting dangermen to work as part of a pioneering new visitor experience at the underground visitor attraction.
It is advertising for applicants who are "physically fit and strong, have a head for heights and able to work in semi-darkness".
The potential employees should be bilingual in Welsh and English, with good acrobatic and balancing skills.
Intriguingly, an ability to sing ‘acapella’ (without instrumental accompaniment) is preferred.

JW Greaves is being tight-lipped about the precise details of the attraction set to open this spring but said it will be the first of its kind in the world.
The company, which has been quarrying in the hills of Snowdonia since 1836, says it is looking to fill a variety of roles, some of which require a rather unusual skillset.
Michael Bewick, managing director at Llechwedd Slate Caverns, said: “The dangermen roles will be central to the delivery of our hugely exciting new visitor attraction which complement our existing on-site facilities.

“The story of Llechwedd and the slate industry in Wales is one of great human endeavour, courage, strength and ingenuity.
“Our dangermen will help us to share what is an absolutely compelling part of Welsh heritage and culture with a whole new audience.”
Llechwedd Slate Caverns is already home to a series of global-firsts including the world’s largest zip zone at Zip World Titan and the world’s largest fully underground zip line course at Zip World Caverns.
