Australia's "Best Job in the World" competition returns

5th Mar 13 12:08 pm

Remember 2009, when London collectively groaned at the luck of Ben Southall, who beat 34,000 applicants from more than 200 countries to win the Best Job in the World?

Yup, the job that saw him become the caretaker of Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef, with a job description that read probably almost exactly as excitingly as all of ours: “to explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, swim, snorkel, make friends with the locals and generally enjoy the tropical Queensland climate and lifestyle”.

Sickening, wasn’t it?

Well don’t go hurling your Weetabix across the meeting room in envy just yet. The Australian Tourism Board has resurrected its hugely successful campaign this year, offering no less than six new Best Job in the Worlds: chief funster, outback adventurer, park ranger, wildlife caretaker, lifestyle photographer, and taste master.

Of course, they all offer sickeningly beautiful opportunities to basically have the best long holiday of your life. And each six-month contract gets a £67,000 pay package too.

In 20 hours since going live, the video has already garnered 29,000 views. So if you’re eyeing up one of the roles, get in there quick!

Think that’s a good competition?

ENTER NOW: Willie Walsh, Kelly Hoppen, Luke Johnson, Michelle Mone + others will judge your business in London’s most challenging business awards
