Could driving a limo be the Best Job in Town?

MATT Murphy is chuffed to be a chauffeur - but will his job win him a $1000 flight voucher?

The Hervey Bay man owns and operates Essence Limousines with his wife Lisa and has entered Fraser Coast Chronicle's Best Job in Town competition.

"It's a really cool job. I get to drive a stretch limo around and see awesome spots around town," he said.

The couple started the business four years ago, when they noticed a shortage of wedding cars on the Fraser Coast available for their daughter's wedding.

He has since made sure local blokes have kept good on their promise to say "I do" and helped beautiful brides get to the altar on time.

"Weddings are the bread and butter of the job, no two weddings are the same and no two brides are the same either," he said.

Matt struggles to think of anything he doesn't love about his business but said passengers with travel sickness could be a little tricky. He said a spotless driving record and good people skills were needed to be successful in the limo business.

The Chronicle is running a competition to launch our new jobs portal, where you could win a $1000 flight voucher for telling us about your job.

The portal features the latest jobs news and what's happening in the employment sector locally and on a broader scale.
