New Zealand recruiting for "dream job"

Article content

4 February 2010

Tourism New Zealand has described a new caretaker position being offered by the country's Department of Conservation as a "dream job".

The role will see the lucky applicant take up the duty of overseeing d'Urville Island - located in the Marlborough Sands - which has been called a "slice of paradise".

According to the organisation, the area is well known for its "scenic beauty" and wide range of exciting wildlife.

While the vacancy is an unpaid one, Tourism New Zealand explained, the lucky candidate will receive free accommodation and an "idyllic lifestyle".

The individual who takes on the job will be tasked with looking after the island's reserve area, which has a beach, a number of bays and large forest.

A similar position, dubbed the "best job in the world", was offered to Ben Southall last year.

Mr Southall became the caretaker of the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, with his day-to-day activities recorded in a blog.
