You'd think ANYONE would jump at the chance to apply for a job that's paying $400,000 PER YEAR, right??? 

Wrong. Dr Alan Kenny from the Waikato is struggling to recruit anyone on that kind of salary.

Kenny owns a medical practice in Tokoroa, Waikato, and is offering $400k, ownership of half the practice, three months holiday pay and no weekend or night shifts for the right candidate - but NO ONE wants it.

He told the New Zealand Herald that he thinks the pressure of  looking after the 6,000 clients on the books comes across as quite daunting. 

"I can offer them a really, really amazing income; it's incredible. My practice has exploded in the last year and the more patients you list, the more money you get. But it just gets too much at the end of the day. I love my work and I would like to stay but I hit my head against a brick wall trying to attract doctors. If it's hard enough to get doctors to work alongside me, it's going to be a devil of a job to get doctors to replace me," he told the newspaper.
