Bartender needed for paradise bar floating mile off Jamaica

Most of us have fantasised about ditching our job and running away to start afresh at a tropical paradise elsewhere at some point in our lives, but few people ever get the opportunity to make that wish come true.

However, don't despair, because Virgin Holidays is looking for someone to run a world-famous bar in sun-kissed Jamaica. It seems as though Floyd, the eponymous bartender of Floyd's Pelican Bar, is in need of some new staff. Located a mile off the coast of Jamaica in the Carribean sea, the bar (which was built back in 2001) is one of the most Instagrammable places in the world and attracts scores of visitors from around the globe.

Check out this amazing drone footage of Floyd's Pelican Bar from above:

Applicants wanting the opportunity to pull pints at the world-famous drinking establishment must be willing to commute by boat or paddleboard, eager to chat to locals and tourists alike, and capable of managing the music playlist to ensure chill vibes. The flight out and seven nights of free accommodation are included.

Commenting on the opportunity, applicant judge and supermodel Jodie Kidd stated: "I love being a pub landlady here in the UK, but if I had the opportunity to take the best of the job and do it all from an island paradise in the Caribbean, I wouldn't say no."

She continued: "This is an incredible chance for anyone looking to combine the best job in the world with one of the best overseas destinations - and give a local legend a well-deserved holiday - so what are you waiting for?"

Meanwhile, the managing director of Virgin Holidays, Joe Thompson, stated: "We think the Caribbean is your playground - filled with so much fun and beauty to explore, from the white beach sands to the vibrant culture."

He added: "We have sent millions of British holiday-makers to explore this idyllic part of the world over the last few decades, but never like this. It's an opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the Jamaican culture - a once in a lifetime experience."

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Virgin Holidays to see if you qualify for the gig!
