Want to be a professional zombie or perhaps a licensed sunflower?

Never seen yourself as an office worker.

Just can't cut it in retail.

Well you're in luck, because PopCap Games, the leader in casual games are looking for two very special individuals for two open positions at the Dublin-based company, do you see yourself as a good 'sunflower' or 'zombie', no we are being very serious!

Successful candidates will take on the roles of the stars of PopCap's hugely successful multi-platform game Plants vs. Zombies by taking to the streets at a series of public events throughout the year by bringing the undead to life, and sunshine to the masses by playing the hugely cute characters in real life.

Cathy Orr, PopCap’s senior director of international PR said, “When it came to casting the Plants vs. Zombies characters, we decided that rather than stick to a traditional promotional agency route, it makes sense for us to cast the net wider and go anywhere and everywhere to make sure we get the right cultural fit. It is a fun opportunity for the right individuals to showcase their acting talents, create some buzz and most of all, have fun!”

You do not need to be an expert zombie, or even a gardener, all you need do is send a C.V. and a cover letter along with any supporting photos and/or videos illustrating why you are the perfect candidate for the job. Entries close June 15th 2011.

Submitted images do become PopCap Games' property, and with permission they will possibly post them for public view on their website and social network pages, so if you want your face out there, where better an opportunity. Send your photos and such to pvzjobs@popcap.com.

However, if you wish to work at PopCap Games for slightly more technical roles, they have a host of proper games jobs, just check out their website for more info. I wish I could be a professional sunflower, but unfortunately I already have a job, I'm tempted to apply anyway though!
