LONDON, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The hunt for a UK Ambassador to represent the Meerkat village of Meerkovo was launched today by best selling author and founder of comparethemeerkat.com, Aleksandr Orlov.
The six month, home based role will pay 40,000 pounds Sterling, gross, and the successful applicant will become the country's most famous meerkat's first ever, human, UK based Ambassador. The role will be advertised in The Sunday Times, The Times and The Guardian this week with applications open on http://www.meerkovo.com until 20th April 2011.
The role will require the UK Ambassador to represent Meerkovo at a number of high-profile sporting and cultural events such as Wimbledon and The Lord's Test Match, Glastonbury and The Last Night of the Proms* to raise awareness of the plight of the village.
Despite Aleksandr Orlov's best efforts to clear up the continued confusion between comparethemeerkat.com with comparethemarket.com through releasing epic trilogy adverts, documentaries and even writing a best selling book, the confusion is now having a major effect on all the villagers of Meerkovo and their livelihoods.
Commenting on the latest stage of his campaign to stop the confusion, the appointment of an Ambassador, Aleksandr said, "I am seeking an exceptional talented UK human person to act as ambassador for the Meerkats of Meerkovo. Lucky candidate will be my eyes, ears and claws in the UK, reminding peoples of difference between meerkat and market."
No specific experience or qualifications are required but the successful applicant will demonstrate:
- A clear understanding of the problems facing Meerkovo
- Outstanding communications and interpersonal skills
- Proven knowledge of using social media
- Ability to come up with strong creative ideas to help communicate the problems facing Meerkovo
Applicants have until 20th April 2011 to visit Meerkovo.com and fill in an application form. Interviews will be held in London during the week of 25th April 2011 where a final shortlist of candidates will then be announced and encouraged to campaign for the role. The winner will be decided in May by a public vote on the village's website http://www.meerkovo.com
Aleksandr Orlov started his campaign to help people know the difference between comparethemeerkat.com and comparethemarket.com in 2009 with a TV advertising campaign. Since then Aleksandr has produced a film trilogy, launched an iPhone app and written a best selling biography. He currently has almost 800,000 Facebook fans and 40,000 Twitter followers but the confusion remains.
