Floyd Forbes has a pretty incredible job – he's the owner and manager of Floyd's Pelican Bar, a floating haven the middle of the Caribbean Sea.
Since 2001 he has spent his days making drinks for tourists and locals who have visited his place, but while he may work in paradise, he hasn't managed to take a proper holiday in eight long years.
So now he's on the hunt for someone to help him take a break and take over the running of the bar for one week this summer.
And it sounds like the job opportunity of a lifetime!
Floyd has teamed up with Virgin Holidays to send one lucky British bartender to Negril, in western Jamaica – trading rain and cloud for Caribbean sunshine.
The lucky applicant will be offered free flights and accommodation so they can serve piña coladas and rum punches at the bar that's only accessible by boat.
In order to be considered for the role, you'll need to be willing to commute by boat or paddle board, eager to chat to locals and tourists and get to know them over a cool bottle of beer and manage the music playlist to ensure chilled beats are playing at all times.
Other requirements include being able to multi task and throwing the occasional fish to the resident pelicans who gave the bar its name.
Model turned publican Jodie Kidd has helped Floyd launch the unique job advert and will be helping to judge the candidates.
She said: "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.
"This is an incredible chance for anyone looking to combine the best job in the world with one of the best overseas destinations – and giving a local legend a well-deserved holiday – so what are you waiting for?
Joe Thompson, Managing Director of Virgin Holidays added: "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.
"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."
