Reggae star Shaggy has been appointed Virgin Holidays’ Chief Caribbean Officer to proudly represent his home region. But now Virgin Holidays needs someone else to lend a hand...
Born and raised in Jamaica, Shaggy has kicked off his new role in breath-taking Antigua. In a brand new film released by Virgin Holidays, he discovers the island’s beaches, some of the adrenaline-filled thrills, and the Elite Island Resorts’ Antigua Collection. He also meets some of the laidback locals, all while making sure the destination is perfect for holidaymakers.
But there’s just too much to explore for Shaggy to do it all on his own. He needs someone willing to take the reins in Antigua and take on the role of Chief Caribbean Officer while he goes back to his main job as a musician.
The successful applicant must be prepared to:
- Explore as many of Antigua’s 365 beaches as possible – sandy toes are guaranteed in this role
- Discover the beauty of the rainforest. Ziplines are available to help cover ground quickly so this isn’t a job for the fainthearted
- Indulge in Antigua’s best restaurants and bars, sampling as many of the delicious local delicacies as you can. Sip some of the island’s refreshing rum cocktails. Ideally the chosen applicant will have a sweet tooth to enjoy the tasty black pineapples that can’t be found anywhere else in the world
- Take as many holiday snaps as possible – Antigua’s number of beauty spots cannot be underestimated
- Take responsibility for ensuring everyone is having the best time on the island
Shaggy said: “I love travelling around the world to perform, but my journey began in the Caribbean and I still call it home. As Chief Caribbean Officer for Virgin Holidays, I am committed to spreading the word about all of the incredible things that the region has to offer.
“Having just returned from an amazing trip to Antigua, there’s still a lot of ‘work’ to do, so an energetic recruit needs to fill my shoes while I’m on tour for my new album. That means experiencing as many bars, restaurants and activities as possible. It’s a tough gig – but someone has to do it!”
