The Church of England has advertised for a new bishop in the small ads at the back of two church newspapers.
The present bishop is known for visiting on his motorbike
And there do not appear to be any restrictions on who can apply for the £33,000-a-year post.
The successful applicant will replace present Bishop of Hereford John Oliver in December, reports the Sunday Times.
The See of Hereford comes with a rent-free 18th-century house near the cathedral, a gardener, a chauffeur and office staff.
It is the first time in the church's 470-year history it has issued a job advertisement.
In the past, appointments have been made behind closed doors by senior church people in the Crown Appointments Commission.
This is part of a deliberate attempt to demystify and open up the process
Chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, it is so private candidates are not even interviewed.
However a recent committee on appointments recommended that they should be done more openly, and called for job interviews.
The Hereford advert is seen as a nod towards those recommendations.
Professor Michael Clarke, head of the appointments committee, told the Sunday Times: "This is part of a deliberate attempt to demystify and open up the process of appointing bishops."
Women need not apply because they are barred from becoming bishops.
But there is nothing to stop a non-ordained person being considered.
St Thomas Becket, for example, who is considered to be the greatest archbishop of Canterbury, was not a priest when he was appointed.
However it is unlikely someone unconnected with the church would be appointed.
