Husqvarna offers the easiest summer job in Canada

June 11, 2019  By  Mike Jiggens

June 11, 2019 – Husqvarna, a division of the world’s largest producer of outdoor power products and lawn care equipment and a world leader in robotic mowing, has announced its Smartest Summer Job campaign. To showcase how easy it is to get a perfectly mowed lawn with Husqvarna’s Automower® robotic lawn mower, Husqvarna will select two summer students to serve as “Managers of Chilling,” a role in which they sit in a Muskoka chair at Trillium Park at Ontario Place in Toronto and watch the robotic mower do all the work.

As brand representatives, they will engage with passersby and on social media to share the key benefits of Automower®, such as a better lawn and more free time.
“For the Smartest Summer Job, we are looking for two candidates who know how to work smarter, not harder,” Michelle Sordi, senior director of marketing for Husqvarna North America, said. “Automower® is already keeping more than 1.5 million lawns around the world perfectly mowed at all times, and we’re excited to show people exactly what it can do. We’re offering candidates the chance to become experts in robotics so they can share this message while they hang out with Automower®.”
The Managers of Chilling will be responsible for supervising the Automower® for 20 days, documenting its progress via their personal social media channels and Husqvarna’s social media channels. Smartest Summer Job will run from July 12 to Aug. 3, which includes travel days to and from Trillium Park at Ontario Place. The job will also include robotics training from the experts at Husqvarna, an opportunity offered exclusively through Husqvarna’s Smartest Summer Job program. Equipped with an umbrella, a tall glass of water, their smart phones and this newfound knowledge, the Managers of Chilling will demonstrate the benefits of Automower® from the comfort of a lawn chair on the beautiful Ontario Place grounds.

The employees will get paid to sit back, relax and enjoy the summer, keeping the robotic mower company. The job is open to all Canadians (travel and accommodations included). The deadline to apply is Sunday, June 16.

Husqvarna will then select a pool of 20 finalists by Friday, June 21. Those finalists will be asked to upload a short video telling Canadians why they should get the job. The videos will be posted on Husqvarna.ca, where Canadians will have a chance to vote for their favourite candidate. Public voting for the top two candidates will be open from Tuesday, July 2 to Sunday, July 7. The winners will be announced on Monday, July 8.
