There's a job in Taumarunui that's offering over $150,000 and free accommodation but it's been hard to fill!

It's been more than four months since Forgotten World Adventures advertised for a general manager.

Apparently the job isn't as easy as it sounds to fill.

Owner Ian Balme said they thought they had the right person for the job, but then the candidate's wife refused to move so it was back to the drawing board.

Balme said the lucky candidate would receive over $150,000 and wouldn't need to have experience in tourism.

What they would need though was "true leadership skills" and be someone "exceptional" who could help the business reach their goals.

"We are looking for someone who is excited about doubling our revenue over the next three years, passionate about securing our position as a bucket list experience for our target market and focused on developing our reputation as an industry leader."

Forgotten World Adventures is a tourism business which offers several different tours along the Forgotten Highway.
