Queen Elizabeth Can Be Your New Boss; Her Majesty Hiring Digital Communications Officer
This is a chance for royal fans to meet Queen Elizabeth II and work for her, as Her Majesty is hiring a Digital Communications Officer to work out of the Buckingham Palace.
As per the Royal Household website, the job description is to find "new ways" in maintaining the presence of Queen Elizabeth in the public eye, as well as the world stage. If ever hired, you will be working with a small team to make contents across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms.
In addition, a Digital Communications Officer should be comfortable in posting content on the mentioned platforms that will be viewed by millions of people. Thus, you need to make sure that Queen Elizabeth's digital channels should always spark interest and should also reach a range of audiences.
The job also requires you to research and write articles and will be covering royal engagement, state dinners, and award ceremonies. That said, there is a high chance that aside from meeting Her Majesty, you will also have the chance to meet other royal family members such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The ideal candidate, according to the listing, should be a savvy social media user and confident. He or she will be "innovative," and with "creative flair," and should have skills in video production, photography, and writing.
The post also noted that an "expert" is what Queen Elizabeth needs, and this is an opportunity to use your "digital experience to deliver the exceptional." Moreover, the role requires you to quickly respond to changing priorities, which means that you need to deliver in a "fast-paced" and "deadline-driven" environment.
The salary reportedly depends on the experience, but the payment is said to be about £30,000 (around $38,400). It requires working Monday through Friday with an average of 37.5 hours per week. If hired, you will receive free lunch and a comprehensive benefits package.
If you are interested in the position, you can go and apply to the Royal Household website or LinkedIn. There are reportedly over 200 people have already applied, and hurry as the deadline for applications is due on May 26.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth's grandchildren also have their own social media platforms with growing followers.

Currently, the account has more than 8 million followers.
