23 Brits are among the 150 finalists selected from all over the world that are taking part in the second round of Tourism Australia’s Best Jobs in the World campaign. The finalists beat a total of 600,000 people to make it to this stage and have all been invited to take part in the second interview process on the 15th May.
Among the 23 UK entrants that have made it through to the final stages of the competition are four Brits that have applied for the Wildlife Caretaker position. Alice Callow, 20, Tom Hesketh, 22, Scott Tisson, 29, and Mat Richards, 33 will all fly to Australia next week to prepare to take part in the final interview stages.
Five Brits have been shortlisted for the role of Chef Funster, while three have been chosen for the Park Ranger position and one UK Candidate made it onto the shortlist for the Outback Adventurer role. Three contestants from the UK have made it through to the final 25 competing for the Lifestyle Photographer role and an impressive seven have made it onto the shortlist for the Taste Master position.
“It’s already proving one of the hardest jobs in the world judging our ‘Best Jobs in the World’ competition. The quality of the entries has been amazing, with so many of the candidates doing a really great job of presenting themselves on video,” said Andrew McEvoy, managing director at Tourism Australia, who has had to sift through thousands of applicant videos to pick out the final 150.
The final 150 will be narrowed down to 18 over the next month. The remaining 18 will then be invited to take part in the final assessment, with the final six successful candidates announced on the 21th June 2013.
