One lucky couple will be paid Rs 88 lakh per year to look after a private island in the Bahamas
The job opening, that has been listed on Polo & Tweed, says that chosen applicant will be paid anything between $100,000-$120,000 per year
How would like a full island for yourself and your significant other without having to pay a penny?
A wealthy family in the Bahamas is looking for a couple to look after their private island in return for a handsome remuneration of $1,20,000 (Rs 88 lakhs) a year.
The family reportedly wants to hire a 'travelling domestic couple’ to take over the domestic management of their household on the island in the Bahamas.
However, the job may not be all paradise as one may think it will be. It will require the couple to work across multiple homes of the family, that are based between Naples. Florida and the Bahamas.
The job opening, that has been listed on Polo & Tweed, says that chosen applicant will be paid anything between $100,000-$120,000 per year, along with healthcare, dental benefits, and a work car.
“This really is a once-in-a-lifetime position. So much so that the client laughingly told me that he was tempted to apply for the job himself. Needless to say, we have been inundated with replies since the job went live on our website over the weekend. But we’ve yet to compile a shortlist so we would urge interested couples to send through their CVs without delay,” said Lucy Challenger, founder of domestic recruiter Polo & Tweed.
The couple will be working Monday to Friday, 8 AM-5 AM, with the exception of the odd weekend or late shift work.
The job description reads: "You should be skilled in household management and maintenance, helping with the upkeep of the buildings and working with the other contractors. You should be organized and if you enjoy cooking this is a bonus. One of you may have to perform driving duties such as running errands or picking up guests from the airport etc. Occasionally one of you may be tasked to attend the other property on their own, but typically you will both be in the same residence together."
According to a report by Metro.co.uk, the family is looking for an experienced couple and wants them to become long-term team members on the island.
The recruiter is already swamped with applications from around the world even though the job was posted only on April 28.
