Richard Branson is hiring an assistant who'll live on his private island

If you're looking an 'indefinite' getaway on a private island, Richard Branson's latest job posting may be the role for you.  

Branson, billionaire and founder of Virgin Group, recently posted what seems like the opportunity of a lifetime on LinkedIn. The role, which is listed on the site as a personal assistant and admin assistant, "is an administrative role, covering two busy offices." The offices include Branson's and Necker Island General Manager Keny Jones. 

While the assistant role covers two offices, the person selected for the position will be based at Necker Island and their responsibilities will include "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." In short, "despite the sunshine," the role comes with a pretty hefty workload. 

Here's an inside look at Necker Island, Branson's private island:
