The Job That Pays $400,000 A Year That Nobody Wants

If I told you that I had a job that paid over $400,000, offered three months holiday and was set in beautiful surrounds, you’d probably kiss me and call me your fairy Godmother, wouldn’t you?

Yeah, that’s what I thought too.

But then I see this report on the Daily Telegraph that describes this amazing job, and they’re saying that NOBODY has applied for it.

And all I can think is WHY?!

The job at a doctor’s surgery in Tokoroa in the Waikato region of New Zealand’s North Island has had no applications after four months of advertising, according to The New Zealand Herald.

The job offers a handsome salary of NZ$400,000 a year (AU$368,000) and three MONTHS of holiday each year.

The doctor who lands the job will reportedly also be exempt from night and weekend work as well as get a half SHARE of the practice, which has 6000 patients on its books.

The co-owner currently at the practice, Dr Alan Kenny, says that he said that the fact that the job is in a rural location is putting people off.

“My practice has exploded in the last year and the more patients you list, the more money you get.

“But it just gets too much at the end of the day.

“Last year, I cancelled a holiday because I couldn’t get a locum...and this year I am probably going to have to cancel a holiday...and it’s just tough for me.”
