The Royal Family Is Hiring Someone to Travel and Go to Garden Parties With Them
If you love the British royal family and tweeting all day long, we have a job posting you need to check out.
In a new listing posted to LinkedIn, the Royal Household announced that it is looking to hire a communications assistant for a 12-month, fixed-contract gig.
“The Royal Communications team promotes the work, role, relevance and value of the Royal Family to a worldwide audience,” the listing says. “Joining this fast-paced and dynamic team, you'll assist senior colleagues with both proactive and reactive communications.”
It added that whoever lands the role will assist in organizing coverage of palace engagements, including events at Kensington like garden parties, and provide support for off-site engagements.
And if you’re thinking about applying for the job, you better be well-versed in public relations, media, and social media.
“You'll also play a role in producing content for a variety of platforms. From press announcements and media briefing notes, to social media updates and feature articles; you'll develop your skills as you take on each new challenge,” the listing says.
While the position is based in Kensington, the person who gets the role will also have to be OK traveling to sometimes far-off destinations with the royals, including Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, or even spending time with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they plan their royal wedding media blitz. With all of these things, the new hire will have to uphold the royals' stellar reputations and ensure that their trips have maximum media impact.
“Whether covering a state visit, award ceremony or Royal engagement, you'll make sure our communications consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences,” the listing says.
The job will undoubtedly be full of long hours and hard work, but whoever gets it will also be handsomely rewarded with 33 vacation days per year, a 15 percent employer contribution pension plan, and “support for your continued professional development.”
No salary is listed, but really, can you put a price on professional development while working alongside the coolest royals around?
