Want to be paid to eat, drink and party at VIP functions? Or perhaps sunbathing, snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef and walking through spectacular rainforests? Maybe outback adventure is more your thing? Here’s how…
In 2009, a charismatic Brit called Ben Southall beat 34,000 contenders from 200 countries when he “won” the job as caretaker on Hamilton Island, in what generated Tourism Queensland $200 million in publicity. He’s now been recruited again to be part of the campaign’s promotion.
This time around, Tourism Australia is teaming up with industry and State and Territory partners in a $4 million dollar campaign targeting the international youth market.
Each of Australia’s six State and Territory Tourism Organisations is offering their own unique “Best Job in the World” as a prize.
The six ‘Best Jobs in the World’ each come with an attractive six month salary package worth $100,000 including living costs and are:
In essence, be paid to drink the best wines, attend parties, sunbathe on a beach and take photographs in exotic locations around Australia.
"A few years ago I won “The Best Job in the World” – being an Island Caretaker on the Great Barrier Reef. Unfortunately for me, my time is up. But luckily for the world ‘The Best Job in the World’ is back. This time there’s not one, but six amazing jobs in Australia up for grabs." Ben Southall, Winner 2009 Best Job in the World.
Tourism Australia has secured a number of key partners to support the campaign, including Virgin Australia, STA Travel, Citibank, DELL, IKEA, Sony Music and Monster.com, who have created an online ‘jobs board’, advertising temporary jobs within the Australian tourism industry aimed at travellers visiting the country under Australia’s WHM program.
