Be surrounded by books and walk barefoot along a crystal-clear sea. A dream that could become a reality for the lucky one who will be chosen as an employee of a small library in the Baa Atoll, in the Maldives.

The job offer has the appearance of a real holiday, full of relaxation and reading. And you are also paid for it. The Ultimate Library company, in collaboration with the five-star resort Soneva Fushi, is looking for a lover of reading who wants to run the business for six months.

To apply, you must send your resume and a cover letter by September 1st . It is difficult to obtain an answer if certain requisites are not met, but a boom in applications is expected. People with unbridled passion for books and the ability to work in teams and in contact with customers of all ages will be considered. It is also necessary to be able to write and speak excellent English and to learn about classical and modern literature.

After the selection, a one-month training period will start in the Maldives. Arrived on the pristine beaches of the atoll, the lucky one will have to keep a blog to tell how a bookseller’s life is on an almost deserted island and update the social profiles of “Barefoot Bookseller”.
