Now Hiring: How Queen Elizabeth II Can Be Your New Boss

No, you did not read that headline incorrectly.

Queen Elizabeth II is hiring a Digital Communications Officer to work out of Buckingham Palace, according to the Royal Household website. In this role, you’ll find “new ways to maintain The Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage,” reads the listing. “This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.”

That, and the one-of-a-kind perks. If hired, you’ll work with a small team to create content across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook among other platforms, as well as research and write articles. Plus, you’ll be covering state dinners, award ceremonies and royal engagements. It’s safe to assume you’ll be getting plenty of face time with Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Bet your friends can’t say the same about their jobs!

A confident and savvy social media user, the ideal candidate will be “innovative…with creative flair” and have solid photography, writing and video production skills. 

“You’re the expert we need,” reads the post. “This is your opportunity to use your digital experience to deliver the exceptional.”

And though pay is dependent on experience, the salary will be around £30,000. (That’s about $38,400, in case you were wondering.) While working Monday through Friday—and averaging 37.5 hours a week—you’ll receive “a comprehensive benefits package” and free lunch!

Sure, a selfie with the royal family is cool, but so is complimentary food.

But don’t hesitate to apply: Applications are due in by May 26!
