HOLIDAYING in Iluka during Christmas for the first time, young Brisbane man Matt Ilton not only fell in love with the place, he also fell in love with a local girl.

Six months later Matt wants to move to the Clarence Valley to be with his girlfriend but won't leave the job he has in Brisbane until he finds work here.

"My big brother, who has travelled all around the world, told me to paint some signs with 'Work Wanted' and stick them in the ground around the district. He said he had done this a few times and had never been out of work, so that is why I have tried it.

So far the only job offer has been as a stripper from someone in Lismore.

"I need a better work offer than that to get me down to Iluka! I have never been on welfare and it is something I simply won't do as that is not the way I have been raised, I want to work for my money," Matt said.

"For the past five years I have worked with my dad in garden maintenance and for the past two years I have managed his business. I prefer outdoor work but will take anything to get established in the area.

If anyone can help this entrepreneurial love tragic, please call Matt Ilton on 0412 010 538.
