Richard Branson’s done pretty well for himself, building a multi-million pound empire.
He tries his best not to be stingy either, giving a helping hand where needed and, as it turns out, offering pretty sick jobs.
Branson is looking for a new PA at Virgin, and the role would require you to live on his private island, Necker Island. Not bad that, is it?
The job was posted on LinkedIn, and despite what you’d assume would be a daunting application process, it’s not.
“Fancy working on Necker Island?,” the job description starts. “Thought so! Well a pretty exciting opportunity has come up and Necker Island’s General Manager Keny Jones is looking for a new PA to combine with Richard Branson’s office, who are looking for a new admin assistant. One person to help look after both offices!
“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, among 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).”
They make it quite clear that the successful applicant must have great administration skills (shocking for an admin role, isn’t it?), but also has to be ‘self-motivated, outgoing and enthusiastic who can balance this with the essential need for discretion and confidentiality’.
They claim that’s the perfect personality to have, but honestly, who’s going to go for a drink with that person?
If you want to apply all you have to do is email a video of yourself along with your CV to [email protected] before March 10, 2018.
