THE WORLD’S BEST JOB
adapted from www.privateislandsmag.com, www.theguardian.com
1.1. As the caretaker of a private island tucked away in the Bahamas, James Ralston has a job most people could only dream of. ‘It’s a great life,’ he says, ‘and one that comes with very few drawbacks.’ Yet, it’s not them, but the perfect weather and amazing water sports in a Bahamian paradise that keeps him there. Sun, sand and the Caribbean Sea – nothing beats it. One of his favourite activities is fishing in the area around the island, and he says that there’s nothing better than dinner caught by your own hand. ‘Luckily for me, I never get tired of swordfish and crawfish!
1.2. But are there any challenges faced by the person solely responsible for someone’s multi-million dollar hideaway? Being not only extremely busy, but also highly demanding individuals, they expect caretakers to be constantly available and ready when needed. ‘I love the island, but I’m not here to enjoy myself,’ James adds.
1.3. ‘My job is to make sure that the island is ready when it’s time for holidays, make any necessary repairs, and clean up after stormy weather.’ James couldn’t agree more. ‘Anybody who would like to be in my place must be industrious, genuinely handy, in good physical shape, and capable of a fairly solitary existence.’
1.4. And how do you land a job like this? James had to fight off competition from almost 35,000 applicants worldwide to secure the post. He won the job after spending three days under the close scrutiny of Bahamas Tourism officials who tested the fifteen finalists. Apart from these, finalists also had to take swimming tests and demonstrate their blogging abilities.

So if you feel like changing your career and becoming the caretaker of a private island, just follow James’s blog and learn more about the world’s best job.
