Domino's Pizza offering Y2.5 million job

Domino's Pizza in Japan is advertising a new job that will pay 2.5 million yen (£19,000) for an hour's work.

The fast food chain has confirmed that it plans to hire someone for a one-hour job. Further details of the job opportunity are due to be revealed on November 10th but information released so far confirms that applicants do not need to have experience or education – although they must be at least 18 years of age.

A spokesman for Domino's said: "We're actually a little surprised by how much of a response it's getting."

According to the Japanese government, the average hourly rate of part-time workers in the country is around 1,000 yen (£7.62).

Media reports suggest that the 2.5 million yen job could be part of a forthcoming campaign celebrating the operation of Domino's Pizza in Japan for 25 years.

Domino's Pizza opened its first Japanese store in Ebisu, Tokyo and was the first fast food company in the country to offer pizza delivery to customers.
