Tourism Australia has been inundated with applications for its Best Jobs in the World campaign, which we covered in our news at the beginning of March. The tourism authority has received 515,308 applications from more than 287,000 people with Britons accounting for 76,658 of these.
The six successful candidates will get an AUD$100,000 package (approximately USD104,000) which includes six months' salary for jobs described as a park ranger, a lifestyle photographer, a taste master, a chief funster, a wildlife caretaker and an outback adventurer.
The campaign is to highlight the benefits of the Working Holiday Visa Maker Programme - available to UK citizens aged between 18 and 30 wanting to work and travel in Australia.
Rodney Harrex, regional general manager for Tourism Australia, said: "The huge response to the 'Best Jobs' recruitment drive, and the increasing demand for Working Holiday Visas shows that young Brits are looking to live the Aussie lifestyle, swapping the challenging economic environment here for a new adventure down under."
Those interested in applying for one of the six best jobs need to upload their video entry by 10 April 2013 to www.australia.com/bestjobs
