Richard Branson Is Hiring Someone to Move to His Private Caribbean Island
Just when you thought the perfect job didn't exist, Richard Branson shared a job posting for a personal assistant on his private Caribbean island, Necker Island. Frequented by the Obamas, Harry Styles, Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, and a host of other A-list celebrities, Necker Island is a 74-acre stretch of idyllic paradise nestled in the British Virgin Islands. Owned entirely by the Virgin Group founder, the island houses one eco-friendly resort that hosts a maximum of 30 guests at a time, with rates starting at $78,000 per night for the entire island.
While ample sunshine is inevitable, the lucky hire will assist Necker Island's general manager Keny Jones, in addition to looking after Branson's office as an administrative assistant. "The main responsibilities will be diary and email management, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel, and providing cover for Richard's personal assistant when they're on holiday, amongst a whole host of other admin-related tasks," reads the job posting. "It's a busy role in two even busier offices, so think carefully, as it's not for everyone (despite the sunshine)."
In other words, this is a busy, entry-level role that we assume will boast a host of unbeatable work perks. To apply, email a two-minute video of yourself along with your résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 10, 2018. In the video, outline why you want the job, an interesting fact about yourself, and why your unique skills and experiences would make you a perfect fit for the role.
