The island is approximately 2,400 km from the African continent and, as it has no airstrip, requires a seven-day boat journey from South Africa.
Currently, two people work on the island, Rebekah Goodwill and Lucy Dorman. However, Goodwill’s contract is due to expire in September, so the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has begun looking for a replacement.
The company offers a salary between £25,000 and £27,000.
The job involves “long days” tracking seabird species and requires people who can adapt to living in a “challenging and remote environment”.
Candidates must also have “a science degree or equivalent experience in a relevant field” as well as “experience handling and monitoring wild birds/animals in the field”. Also, the employees have to face difficult weather conditions and bear the lack of fresh food for a year. The supply of food is done only once a year, and it is stored in a large freezer.
