This hotel in the Bahamas has the dream job for anyone who loves flamingos

Dream job alert.

A billion-dollar resort in the Bahamas is looking for someone to take care of their flamingos.


Baha Mar are on the hunt for a Chief Flamingo Officer, who would be in charge of looking after the flock when they arrive in spring.

And, if you needed even more convincing, just look at the resort.


But, before you go and quit your 9-5, it turns out that you will actually need loads of experience to get the job.


The Chief Flamingo Officer position is open to everyone - locals and people from across the globe - provided they have a degree in zoology or a related field, as well as at least five years experience working with and caring for exotic birds.

The job listing for the role says the ideal candidate would also have strong people skills, as they will need to lead and execute guest interactions with flamingos.

They will also need to lead guests on tours and provide educational opportunities.

According to Cosmopolitan, the new CFO would work alongside the resort's chief scientists, Vanessa Haley-Benjamin,  who runs Baha Mar Ecological, Aquatic Conservation Habitat Sanctuary (BEACH Sanctuary).


The BEACH Sanctuary is dedicated to preserving and protecting the wildlife of the Bahamas - and is already home to at least half a dozen nurse sharks, an expanding school of sting rays and Green Sea turtles.

So, do you think you have what it takes to be the Chief Flamingo Officer? Then just visit the careers section at the bottom of and fill out an application.

It is there from now until February 28.
