A council in Greater Manchester is on the look out for a French-speaking local to act as an ambassador to help promote Wigan to foreigners.
The successful applicant will help promote Wigan to French people
Wigan twinned with the French town of Angers in the Loire Valley in 1988.
Every year both towns offer 12-month paid placements with their twinned counterparts as a public relations exercise to raise their profile abroad.
Applicants must be fluent in French and have links with Wigan. Interviews will take place in April.
Angers, which boasts a 12th Century cathedral and a 13th Century castle which houses the Tapestry of the Apocalypse, is situated in western France around two and a half hours drive from Paris.
However, its biggest claim to fame is that it is home to the orange-flavoured liqueur Cointreau and produces about 12 million bottles every year.
Kealey Mulligan, a spokeswoman for Wigan Borough Council said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to find out about the French way of life and to promote Wigan abroad.
"The job it is to support existing links and encourage new ones between the two towns.
"There are already a lot of exchanges which take place between different clubs and organisations but we are always on the look out for more.
"Applicants must be at least 18 years old and be self-motivated, have good communication skills and be outgoing."
The contract pays 14,000 euros (£9,581) and accommodation and free public transport is included.
