Are you passionate about reading and are looking to escape to a remote island in the Maldives for a year, where you can live and eat for free? This might be the perfect job for you.

Ultimate Library, a UK-based company, collaborated with Soneva Fushi, a five-star luxury resort, to open up the first pop-up bookshop in the Maldives in 2018.

Now, the library is seeking a new “Barefoot Bookseller” to run the shop for 12 months, as well as run classes, workshops and lectures for hotel guests.

The lucky applicant will fly to the Maldives to join the Soneva Fushi team in early October this year, with accommodation and all meals free of charge.

They’ll have access to a gym, a spa and watersports such as diving, with staff also having their own private beach.

Required skills include a passion for reading and detailed knowledge of both classical and modern literature, experience in bookselling/publishing and strong social media knowledge.

They also must have the ability to fit in with the Soneva culture.

As reported by The Observer, the basic salary is $750 a month, but the bookseller will be able to earn extra “service fees” by running book-related workshops or classes.

Spokesperson for Ultimate Library Alex McQueen said the “ethos of the island” is “no shoes, no news”.

Resort guests are encouraged to switch off from their devices and “reconnect with the ground”.

Recent “Barefoot Bookseller” Georgie Polhill told The Observer one of the biggest challenges was getting used to the slow-paced life on the island.

“I came back a very different person. I learned an entirely new culture. I made friends that I will have for life,” she said.

Applications for the job close on August 13.
