Richard Branson island competition: Virgin boss looks for Necker assistant | Travel News | Travel

Are you growing tired of the dreary UK weather, the nine to five and long commute?

Well, Virgin founder and multi-billionaire, Sir Richard Branson may have something up his sleeve: an exciting new job opportunity in paradise.

He’s on the hunt for a new personal and administrative assistant – and anyone can apply for the most glamorous entry-level role in the world.

What’s more, the chosen candidate will get to live on his 30-hectare private island, which is part of the Caribbean’s Virgin Islands.

The island has hosted high-profile and influential visitors in the past including the Obamas, Princess Diana and Kate Winslet.

Known for its luxurious accommodation, a week’s stay for a private room on Necker Island in 2018 would set you back just under £23,000.

The job description is currently being advertised on LinkedIn.

The entry-level role covers two busy offices including PA to Necker Island’s general manger, Keny Jones, and admin assistant to Richard Branson’s office.

The lucky candidate should be “someone with fantastic admin and organisational skills as well as practical experience in a busy office,” states the job description.

However “personality is just as important,” the ad continues.

“As well as being a top notch administrator, we’re also looking for someone who is self-motivated, outgoing and enthusiastic who can balance this with the essential need for discretion and confidentiality”.

Main responsibilities include diary and email management, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel and providing cover for Richard’s PA when required.

“A whole host of other admin-related tasks” are also required.

However, there’s a word of warning: “it’s a busy role in two even busier offices so think carefully as it’s not for everyone (despite the sunshine).

The application process is simple, with candidates needing to email a video of themselves along with their CV to iwanttobeyourpaaa@virgin.com.

Lasting two minutes or less, the video should be crammed with important facts like why you want the job, an interesting fact and what unique skills and experience make you perfect for the role. The closing date for applications is March 10th 2018.
