I'm a bit behind on this (you probably got an application in already) but what a great gig... your own (basically your own) tropical Australian island! From BBC:

No formal qualifications are needed but candidates must be willing to swim, snorkel, dive and sail. In return, the successful applicant will receive a salary of A$150,000 ($103,000, 70,000) for six months and get to live rent-free in a three-bedroom villa, complete with pool.
The new recruit will work for just 12 hours a month. Duties include feeding some of the hundreds of species of fish and collecting the island's mail.

I'll be working on my application if you need me.
