The $27,000 job offer to travel Australia and NZ for six months

A company is offering the dream job of being paid to travel around New Zealand and Australia's scenic hotspots.

Deel, a US-based payroll company, is wanting to hire a 'social media nomad' to live out their travel fantasies creating content while on the road for six moths.

They'll provide a fully furnished camper van, $4400 a month ($26,500 in total), and pay for your expenses like food and petrol.

Flights to New Zealand from anywhere in the world will be covered, as would the flight to Australia and then the journey back home.

The 'Deel Mobeel' you would live in for months is fully furnished with all the necessities, like Wi-Fi, bedding and a dashboard bobblehead.

"Fill up the tank to visit Wellington, the most southern capital, and be the first to see the day begin," the job ad says.

"Travel Australia’s '90-Mile Straight' and even dig your toes into Jervis Bay’s world’s whitest sand. Try spotting a kea, the world's only alpine parrot, or stare in awe at the splendour that is Uluru.

"Plus, catalogue some of the half a million different species of the world’s weirdest wildlife on the planet."

Who should apply for the social media nomad job?

To be successful, you will need more than three years of experience as a social media manager, influencer or brand ambassador.

Strong English speaking and writing capabilities is a must and you will need to be able to manage priorities and switch focus accordingly.

You will also need a passport and driver's permit.

Deel is particularly interested in speaking with people who have a connection to the region. They could be from New Zealand or Australia, or just love the countries.

"We’ll even accept Lord of the Rings superfans," Deel said.

Anyone with experience creating content for cross-cultural audiences, the ability to build relationships and the desire to "live and breathe the new future of working from wherever" should consider applying.

Deel is also interested in people who have never backed into a car in a parking lot.

What will you do on the job?

Besides travelling, the job will keep you pretty busy.

The social media nomad will be required to create and upload content related to their travels on both their personal social media platforms and Deel's.

They will also have to demonstrate a "wide range of capabilities available in the Deel platform", like what it is like working for and getting paid by the company.

Meet-ups with remote workers and interviews with Deel clients for testimonials will also need to be done.
