    There are jobs out there that seem too good to be true. Like being Cadbury’s Creme Egg tester, a cat cuddler or Royal digital officer. Then are jobs that require you living on an actual tropical Island.

    Yep, Richard Branson is looking for a PA, and the office is based on Necker Island, his private paradise in the British Virgin Islands. Despite the quite obvious perk, the role does sound full on, as it involves assisting two offices: Branson’s and Necker Island General Manager Keny Jones’.

    Here’s the job description from the LinkedIn ad: ‘Ok, so first of all, the clue is in the title and this is an administrative role, covering two busy offices. The main responsibilities will be diary and email management, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel and providing cover for Richard’s PA when they’re on holiday, amongst a whole host of other admin-related tasks. It’s a busy role in two even busier offices so think carefully as it’s not for everyone (despite the sunshine).’

    But then you’d be working from an island, best kind of commute if you ask us. Interested? Apply here.

    As with previously advertised Virgin roles, this isn’t just your standard CV and cover letter application.

    Nope, you’ll have to film a short video (no longer than two minutes) to explain why you want the job, an interesting fact about yourself and your unique skills and experience that would make you perfect for this role.

    Oh, and you need to apply by 10th March, so if you’re thinking of relocating, now’s the time.
