Are you looking to change your life in a significant way? Maybe you want to ditch your current address and your nine to five for the chance to travel. Who doesn’t fantasise about that at least once a day? Fortunately, Deel is here to make one person’s dream a reality with a super amazing, one-of-a-kind job offer.

The company is looking to hire someone to explore New Zealand and Australia in a fully furnished sleeper van called the Deel Mobeel. You’ll have to regularly create and upload content, host meetups with remote workers, and highlight everything that Deel has to offer. This dream job will require a bit of experience.

You’ll need three years of experience as a social media manager, influencer, or brand ambassador, with strong English speaking and writing skills. Bonus points in your application will be any specific connection to either country, be it relation or just a love of The Lord of the Rings.

In exchange for all of those skills, you’ll be paid $3,400 a month to create content and be the face of the Deel Mobeel. You’ll also have a fully furnished sleeper van with everything you need, an all-expenses-paid flight to New Zealand and from Australia, a weekly stipend for food, gas, parking, and flexible working hours. Deel will even handle your work approval and visa!

If this sounds like your dream job, you can apply through this application portal.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
