Even if you work in paradise, you still deserve a vacation every once in a while.
Just ask Floyd Forbes, the bartender at Floyd’s Pelican Bar in Jamaica. Forbes has been serving customers at his idyllic floating bar since opening it in 2001. The bar is located off the coast of Negril, Jamaica and is regularly described as one of the coolest places to drink in the world. This means Forbes is never short on customers but it also means he hasn’t had much downtime in the past 18 years. Now, it’s time for Forbes to take a well-earned vacation
As reported by Metro, Virgin Holidays is looking for a bartender to cover Forbes’ position while he’s gone. The successful applicant will receive return economy Virgin Atlantic flights to Jamaica, seven nights’ accommodation in a four-star hotel, and £1,000 (around $1300) spending money.
Of course, the winner will also have to work during their stay. According to Metro, the ideal candidate should: be happy to commute to work by boat or paddle board; be eager to entertain guests and serve drinks with a smile; have good taste in music and a good selection of playlists; and be comfortable feeding the resident pelicans once in a while.
Think you can handle all of that? Head over to Virgin’s website and apply for the position now.
