A RADIO presenter who covers Welwyn Hatfield could be in line for one of the ‘best jobs in the world’ after being shortlisted from thousands of entries.

Jules Mayne, who presents the breakfast show on Jack FM, is hoping to land a post as Chief Funster in Australia.

She applied for the post, promoted by Tourism Australia, and is down to the last 25 candidates.

Jules said: “I am down to the last 25 for Chief Funster - which is promoting New South Wales by blogging and using social media telling the world about what it has to offer.

“It really is the dream job and I am VERY excited!”

The post is one of six jobs on offer from Tourism Australia, and more than 600,000 people from across the world applied.

Andrew McEvoy, Tourism Australia’s managing director, said: “Tourism Australia’s ‘Best Jobs in the World’ competition has clearly struck a chord with Brits, and I know there are some fantastic entries from the UK in the mix.

“Now it’s time for the short listed contestants to show the UK public what they’re made of.

“We’re looking for great storytellers, someone adventurous, inspiring – a person eager to jump into the role and soak up all Australia has to offer,”

Jules is hoping to be invited for a final assessment next month, with a final annoucement expected on June 21.
