Dream Job? £40,000 to travel the world - but there's a catch

Whilst it may well be considered a ‘dream job’ to travel the world in a fashion-based position, many good jobs arguably come with a catch.

This week a job advert was published by a CEO searching for an individual who would be willing to travel the globe working in the world of high-end fashion design – Metro.co.uk reports.

And whilst the many fashion jobs may take successful candidates to Milan and Paris and allow them to showcase their designs on prestigious catwalks, this job advert is seeking real exclusivity.

In fact, the designs will be worn exclusively by one individual – the CEO.

“If I look at my diary for the next 12 months or so I’m set to travel to East Asia, North America, Europe and Australia, to name a few, and I need a designer who’s willing to travel with me without hesitation. I’m aware this is a big ask, especially for someone with a family or partner, however it will be worth it,” the advert stated.

The job comes with an annual salary of £40,000 plus what the CEO describes as “extensive perks and benefits”. It promises all-expenses-paid experiences across the globe, with food, accommodation and travel covered, however, it may come with its fair share of challenges.

“I had to let go of my previous designer after repeated creative clashes and a loss of confidence in their abilities,” the CEO wrote.

“He had been my personal stylist for seven years, so I’m keen to recruit someone ASAP.”

If a demanding client isn’t challenging enough, the candidate may well have to utilise a creative mindset in the preparation of matching tailored clothing for the client’s two Pomeranians “as a bit of fun”.

Does this sound like the dream job to recruit for or a professional nightmare? Get in touch and tell us your thoughts...
