Hamilton Island needs Caretaker 

"Wanted: one 'island caretaker', must be able to swim and willing to move to Hamilton Island in Australia's tropical Whitsundays to begin 1 July. Flexible hours and a rather interesting, non-negotiable six-month salary."

Most of you will probably have heard by now of the above, dream job advertisement, advertised around the world in papers like the UK's The Independent but you may not know how to apply.

Prospective candidates have until 22 February to get an application in at islandreefjob.com, submitting a short video clip, less than 60 seconds, explaining just why they think they should get the job. Candidates must be English speakers but I don't see that this will help them to communicate with the Aussies. Communication skills must be excellent, as must a desire for adventure and a true passion for the great outdoors, with the ability to sail, dive and snorkel.

The job clearly involves more than laying on the white silica sand beach, sampling a cold beer, and I don't think that enjoying barbecued lobster will count towards a love of the local wildlife.
