A South Canterbury farmer is looking for an employee capable of wearing his pants around his bum - instead of his knees.

He also needs to be able to "divorce himself from his phone for more than two hours at a time".

Geoff Wallace published an advertisement in his local paper for a stockman to feed bulls for 20 hours a week.

In the advert, Wallace included a list of specific requirements for the future employee.

It reads: "Must be a non-smoker, wear his hat with the peak to the front and be capable of wearing his pants around his a*** not his knees. Also needs to be able to divorce himself from his phone for more than 2hrs at a time. This may turn into a permanent job."
