The opportunity to observe seals and birds, to contemplate spectacular sunsets and to hold the title of King will be of many benefits to anyone holding that position.

The Guardian reports that officials in the borough of Furnace, located on the Furnace Peninsula in northwest England, are looking for a manager for a ‘pub’ on neighboring Peel Island.
The incumbent will receive the title of King or Queen of the Island and will assume various responsibilities in its territory with a castle.
In the unusual traditions of the island, the ‘coronation ceremony’ of the chosen manager stands out, in which the new ‘King of Skin’ is bathed with a liter of beer.
The site is only 20 hectares and can be reached by boat from April to September or by a guided walk when the wave leaves.
According to the island’s website, the castle was built by monks from an abbey in the early 14th century to protect the Barrow-in-Furnace from Scottish pirates and rowdies.
The Barrow City Council, which manages the area, is looking for candidates who can take office before the start of the tourist season in April. In addition to managing the ‘bubble’, responsibilities include taking care of the island.
“You have to have dedication and a great passion for solitude, peace and quiet. You have to have a special personality,” John Murphy, a tour guide who has worked in the area for 40 years, told The Guardian.
Disadvantages of the condition include energy limits, unstable weather, isolation or long working hours. However, there are also benefits such as the opportunity to observe seals and birds, spectacular sunsets and, of course, the title of King.
