Pitcairn Island Teacher application forms

Inhabited largely by the descendants of the HMAS Bounty mutineers, Pitcairn island is looking for a new teacher — but only the most adventurous and self-sufficient need apply.

Pitcairn Island, a speck of land in the Pacific, halfway between New Zealand and South America, has a population of just 45 — descendants of those involved in the mutiny on the Bounty — and is administered by the British High Commission in New Zealand. So get this, the salary for the position is a whopping £27,000 a year, tax-free so in Philippine Peso that’s about 2.45 million pesos a year or 200,000 a month. Forms for the education officer position can be found at the Pitcairn Island Office website.
