The most remote island on earth is looking for employees

The most remote island on earth is looking for employees


It’s only got 265 residents… And as much coastline as you could possibly
want. There happens to be a volcano too, but the
last major eruption was five decades ago. And it certainly helps if you enjoy your own
company, as Tristan da Cunha is situated midway between South Africa and South America. So, if you know something about tending livestock
and crop rotation, the islanders are hoping this could be the place for you. They are seeking a farmer who can help them
increase their food production and to make them less reliant on imports – its 7 days
on a fishing boat to the nearest mainland. However the work could be challenging says
one agricultural adviser who did the job a few years ago. There’s about 1500 acres of grassland on which
they run cattle and sheep. And they also have a small area where they grow potatoes. But
that’s the sum total of the agriculture. This is the loneliest human colony on earth. Tristan da Cunha, a British overseas territory,
hit the headlines in the early 60s when a volcano forced its inhabitants to be evacuated. First to south Africa 1500 miles away and
then onto England – when they returned not all of them seemed happy to be back on the
most remote inhabited island on earth… Islander Basil Lavarello shared his feelings
in 1965. If there were a boat now to return people
to England, I’d say three quarters of the community would return back there to England. Would you be one of them? I would be one of them. Basil’s first cousin once removed is still
on the island, and he maintains it’s the dream place to live and work. It’s very pristine,. I should say, and there’s
no crime and I think anyone who comes here for a short term contract, they just enjoy
it so much that they always say they would like to come back. So now, a rare chance to find out for yourself
– the salary is undisclosed, but there is a pub for after work, and of course all the
view you could ever need.

    They need to advertise to people accustomed to remoteness like … Inuit (Eskimo) who might thinks it wonderfully warm or … Tibetans who might think it is very easy to breath or … the Trump family who would think it is wonderfully free of reporters and prosecutors.

    These people are scammers. To apply you have to pay something like £500 in application fees, and almost nobody is accepted. It's all about scamming the fees.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. The Brits always love to belly-ache about everything and anything they steal. This Island is a COLONY OF THE NOW-DEFUNCT BRITISH EMPIRE. Bob Dylan once sang a song titled: ' LICENCE TO KILL', in which there's a verse: "And he worships, at an Altar, with a Stagnant pool, and when he sees, his reflection, he's fulfilled, oh MAN as opposed to FAILPLAY, he wants all, and he wants it his way, but there's a woman, on block, just sitting there, facing the CHILL, and she says WHO'S GONNA TAKE AWAY HIS LICENCE TO KILL.".Give this song a listen.

    I am sure if the people of island can increase livestock production and make more land for farming like potatoes etc that will be more then enough for their life island no need big development which will destroy the nature of island more development will bring more people which increase crime corruption etc and will destroy the nature of island . Happy healthy life more important then money. The people of island can try to make shade organic farming which will enough for the few hundred people to live a good and healthy life.
