A shortlist of 150 candidates from around the world vying for the ‘Best jobs in the world’ has been announced.

More than 45,000 video entries were submitted to the Tourism Australia competition, which launched in March.

The shortlist of 150 individuals who will go through to the next round of judging includes people from Afghanistan, China, Kazakhstan, Korea, Latvia and Mexico.

The US has the highest number of shortlisted applicants, with 33, followed by the UK (23), Australia (17), France (17), Canada (8) and Italy (5).

They include Alice Callow, from the UK, who promises to only leave “little tiny footprints” if she scores the wildlife caretaker job, South Africa’s Cecile Raubenheimer who has travelled the globe as a celeb reporter is gunning for the chief funster role, and France’s Aude Mayans who wants to make her dream come true by being employed as an outback adventurer.

The shortlisted candidates, whose video applications can be watched on the Best Jobs in the World website, now have two weeks to submit references to support their applications.

Andrew McEvoy, managing director at Tourism Australia, said: “It’s already proving one of the hardest jobs in the world judging our Best Jobs in the World competition. The quality of the entries has been amazing, with so many of the candidates doing a really great job of presenting themselves on video.

“But, just like most other jobs’ recruitment processes, we want more evidence we know we’re getting the best candidate for each job.”

Based on candidates’ original video submissions and supporting references, judges will select the 18 strongest people – three for each of the six jobs – who will be invited for a final assessment in Australia in mid-June.

The six successful applicants who will take on the ‘best jobs in the world’ will be announced on June 21.
