Exile on Main Street
May 23, 2010 - Graham
Want the ultimate get away from it
all job? That’s just what the Government of St.Helena is offering. Tucked away in the South Atlantic, with Cape Town just 1700 miles distant, the island is looking for a Tourism Development Executive. They do admit St. Helena is relatively unknown as a tourist destination, but they reckon it has huge potential to shine.
So they are offering a 2 year fixed term contract. (Surely it’s going to take a bit longer than that to ‘achieve a significant growth in visitor numbers’. With no airport it takes almost that long to get there). But no matter, you will be setting up a tourist board and implementing a rolling tourism strategy and marketing plan.
The main street in St. Helena is called…err… Main Street. Perhaps worth remembering that this is where Napoleon was sent into exile, to get him as far away from civilisation as possible.
Should be a great challenge for someone with a taste for adventure and seafood.
