The Queen is hiring a social media manager and you can apply on Linkedin
Did you miss out on applying to be a 'professional slacker,' Cancun vlogger or full-time Christmas elf? Good news! Another dream job has popped up and it's jolly good! Bl**dy brilliant, my droogs! Not a bog-standard doddle! Not a dodgy dog's breakfast! And certainly not no damp squib! It'll be scrummy and tickety-boo, if you know your onions, innit?
Sorry, mate, lost the plot a bit. Anyway, Queen Elizabeth II dipped her toe in the Instagram pond earlier this year, and now she's expanding her digital footprint. The Royal Household is seeking a Digital Communications Manager to work at Buckingham Palace, and you can apply on LinkedIn. The salary is about £30,000 - $38,000 for you bl**dy Yanks - and the benefits are pretty sweet: a 15% employer contribution pension scheme after 6 months), 33 days annual leave and professional development training. (Hope it's like The Princess Diaries!)
But what exactly will you be doing for the 93-year-old monarch? "Finding new ways to maintain The Queen's presence in the public eye and on the world stage," states the job description. "The role of Royal Communications is to engage a worldwide audience with the public role and work of The Royal Family.... Whether you're covering a state visit, award ceremony or Royal engagement, you'll make sure our digital channels consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences."
The requirements include strong photography skills, "creative flair" and "accurate and compelling written and editorial skills." Also, you must be comfortable creating content that is viewed by millions of pepole. "With an eye to the future, you'll help hone and shape our digital communications through analytics, monitoring and exploring new technologies. The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all you do," reads the job description.
No word on if you'll get to walk the corgis, have tea with Meghan Markle or try on the Queen's vibrant hats - but hey, who knows? Looks like this job will be the bee's knees for one jammy dodger! They'll be quite chuffed to the muff, 'til that chock-a-block schedule has 'em right cream knackered, innit? Better not faff or blow a raspberry, you plonker! Avada kedavra!
