7 Celebrities Who Own Private Islands

Did Kensington Palace pass over your application to be its travel and party pro? Not to worry. A new dream job for travelers has just opened up — and all you have to do is be willing to move to the British Virgin Islands. Well, and to perform a few more various and sundry tasks. 

Here's the deal: As you may know, Richard Branson owns a private island in the Caribbean called Necker Island. The Obamas drop in to go kitesurfing there from time to time, but it seems that the island needs someone to stick around permanently to oversee things. Could this flip-flop-wearing professional be you? 

According to the job posting on LinkedIn, the gig is an administrative role that handles duties for two busy offices (Branson's, and the office of Necker Island's general manager Keny Jones.) As a kind of double personal assistant, you'd be handling: "diary and email management, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel, and providing cover for Richard’s PA when they're on holiday, amongst a whole host of other admin-related tasks."

Whew! So, perhaps you'd have a little less time for sipping rum cocktails at sunset than we thought? Indeed, the posting warns: "It’s a busy role in two even busier offices so think carefully as it’s not for everyone (despite the sunshine)."

But, if a perfectly planned agenda gives a bigger thrill than a Pina Colada ever would, here's what to do: Send your resume to iwanttobeyourpaaa@virgin.com, along with a two-minute video that explains just why you are the perfect person to pack up and move to Necker Island.

Oh, and one other thing: The deadline for submitting your interest is March 10, so don't move on Island Time when it comes to getting that application together.
