A luxury resort in the Bahamas is advertising the role of CFO. That in itself isn't particularly flaming, because a CFO is usually the chief financial officer who handles financials, which in the Bahamas - a tax haven - means lots and lots and lots of money. Mostly yours.

But wait, this isn't any normal CFO. Why? Because in this case it stands for Chief FLAMINGO Officer.

That's right, the £2.48 billion ($3.5bn) Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas is looking for someone to look after its large flamingo population. I think that definitely counts as an 'unusual job'.

Anyone interested in the bird-related job can apply on the company's website but will need to have a degree in zoology.

The Baha Mar website lays out what employees need to do in order to be 'Better than Best' - in other words, to leave a 'lasting impression' on guests and create 'a timeless resort experience that is glamorous, fun and exceptional'. So a bit more flash than a weekend in Glasgow, then. 

More specifically, though, applicants will need at least five years' experience working in the care and husbandry of exotic birds, with specific flamingo-related experience. They'll also need a good grounding in avian science and a strong working knowledge of biology, ecology, the behaviour and captive requirements of flamingos.

The successful applicant will also need to run a breeding programme to ensure a healthy population of flamingos.
