If the recruiter is looking for someone experienced to take a
not-so-peachy job, he/she might have trouble. Sounds like the person
would have to be:

Hmmm. Well, you never know; what's a bad location to me might be
attractive to someone else--maybe the recruiter could cross his/her
fingers and hope someone is experienced, mobile, and enamoured of
extremes in climate.
