A duckling… on the payroll? must be quackers

Online bathroom retailer has undertaken a nationwide search for a duckling to join its team as an official bath tester.

More than 50 hopefuls from across the UK, of varying ages and breeds, applied for the role and eight short-listed finalists (and their owners) were invited to the company’s head office in Watford for an interview.

The interview day included swimming trials, ‘splashability’ challenges and a test to examine the comfort of the baths. All the ducklings were rated on their enthusiasm, inquisitiveness, waddling in and around the baths, while not quacking up.

CEO and founder of, Ian Monk commented: “Who knew there were so many talented ducklings out there? The interview day made the process real for us, and watching the shortlisted ducklings go through their challenges was a great day. Now we have the difficult decision to make as to who we hire as the Official Bath Tester.”
