A Resort In The Bahamas Needs Someone To Look After Its Flamingos

Is your life missing a pop of colour? Are you ready for a tropical change of scenery? Is there a flamingo-shaped hole in your life? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, listen up — we may have found your dream job.

Baha Mar, a luxe resort in the Bahamas, is on the hunt for a CFO. A Chief Flamingo Officer, that is.

According to the job listing, Baha Mar’s Chief Flamingo Officer will serve as a supervisor in all things flamingos. Daily duties include managing diets and habitats, overseeing breeding programs, tending to sick or injured birds, and guiding educational tours for resort guests.

The CFO will work mostly in the resort’s Flamingo Mansion (yes, Flamingo Mansion), a specially built indoor-outdoor environment for the flamingos to flamingle in.

The ideal candidate should care deeply for the animals, have a generous spirit and thrive as part of a team. Sound like you? Well, hold off on handing in your resignation just yet.

To be considered, you need to have a degree in Zoology (or a related field), over five years’ experience working in the care of exotic birds at an accredited facility, a wide knowledge of biology, as well as experience in bird habitat maintenance.

Apart from hanging out with flamingos on the daily, the biggest perk of the job is the location. Baha Mar resort is kitted-out with 2,300 guest rooms, a spa, casino, 18-hole golf course, 11 pools, 20 restaurants, and incredible ocean views to boot. Talk about a tough day at the office.

If you’ve got what it takes, you can apply for the position online.

Honestly, you had us at Flamingo Mansion.
