For those looking to ditch their 9 to 5 and escape the Northeast's bomb cyclones— Richard Branson has the perfect job opportunity for you. Branson's company Virgin Group posted a job listing looking for a personal assistant to work on Necker Island, Branson's private isle in the British Virgin Islands.

The job responsibilities include managing emails, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel, among other typical administrative tasks for Branson's office as well as being the personal assistant to Keny Jones, the island's general manager.

Wondering if you fit the role? The ideal candidate will have "fantastic" administrative and organizational skills and experience working in a busy office. This person must be someone who is "self-motivated, outgoing, and enthusiastic who can balance this with the essential need for discretion and confidentiality." Most importantly, this applicant must be willing to move to Necker Island.

Yup, that's right. For one qualified applicant, the 74-acre island located just north of Virgin Gorda will be home. The luxury private island which is normally rented out starting at $80,000 per night, has enough space for up to 34 guests and is a popular destination for celebrities like Oprah, Mariah Carey and even Barack and Michelle Obama.

For those interested in this exciting opportunity, send a résumé as well as a two-minute video introducing yourself explaining why you're perfect for the job to iwanttobeyourpaaa@virgin.com. The application period closes March 10.
