The Job that can’t be Filled on ‘One of the World’s Most Beautiful Islands’



Doctor Magdalena Nardelli Kovačić from the Croatian island of Mljet is set to retire. Nardelli Kovačić has worked on the island for 35 years, 20 of which as the only doctor on the island…

Nardelli Kovačić, who moved to Mljet from the eastern region of Slavonia over three decades ago, has written an open letter to her colleagues as it seems finding a replacement has been a struggle. Nobody has replied to her job advertisement.

“I need your help. Send this on the waves (Croatian, Balkan, European, International…), on social media, to the diaspora. Connect me with journalist friends so this information can get to someone who would like to live on one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world. I am optimistic and I think someone is out there on the mainland at a busy doctors office or at some A&E in Croatia or in neighbouring countries, we just want this information to get to them,” Nardelli Kovačić writes.

Apart from obvious beautiful nature and surroundings, Nardelli Kovačić says that accommodation is secured for the successful person, and a salary in the range of around 11,000 kuna monthly, depending on specialisation. The candidate must have a driver’s licence and have passed the State exam.

Mljet is the most southerly and easterly of the larger Adriatic islands of the Dalmatia region of Croatia and has a population according to the last census of around 1,000 people.
