We’re seeing more and more dream jobs where the lucky employee gets paid to travel the world. There’s usually some unbelievable perks, and most require skills like photography and social media content creation—but this gig is different.

That’s why the latest dream job we spotted really stands out. One woman is hiring a personal designer to travel the world by her side. So break out your sketchbook and dust off your passport—the main responsibilities are designing and creating custom clothing for her and her two dogs.

Jan describes herself as a “fashion-conscious CEO with a unique sense of style” in her email to Sewport, an online marketplace for brands and manufacturers. Sewport shared the email on its website and opened the opportunity up to the world to help her find the right designer for the job. If you’re a dog-loving, designer with wanderlust, this gig was tailor-made for you.

So, where would this unique personal designer and her pups get to travel? They plan to visit East Asia, North America, Europe, and Australia in the next 12 months, and possibly other destinations, too. Jan is preparing to attend high-profile events like Wimbledon and horse races in Dubai, which is an impressive itinerary that requires a bespoke wardrobe to match. Perhaps the easier question to answer is where are they not going?

Jan says the time away from home and family “will be worth it.” How worth it? The job will pay a salary of £40,000, or around $52,000. She will also cover all expenses, food, accommodation, and transportation costs. Plus, she will pay for all design and material costs.

Like the destinations, the work schedule will vary widely. She says weekly hours can range from 10 to 50, but even during the busiest weeks there should be plenty of time for exploring new places and playing tourist.

Naturally, Jan wants to hire someone as soon as possible and get going on her world tour with custom wardrobe in tow. If you think you fit the requirements she and her dogs are looking for, you can fill out the application here.
