I saw this article on the BBC website today (be sure to play the video). Despite being someone who gets bored during a beach holiday, I was sorely tempted to apply:
Tourism officials in Australia are describing it as “the best job in the world”.
They want someone to work on a tropical island off the Queensland coast.
No formal qualifications are needed but candidates must be willing to swim, snorkel, dive and sail.
In return, the successful applicant will receive a salary of A$150,000 ($103,000, £70,000) for six months and get to live rent-free in a three-bedroom villa, complete with pool.
I mean, it’s no Frank Bruni gig, but it definitely beats commuting to Canary Wharf.
