The Perfect Job? Will And Kate Are Hiring!

Dust off your best interview outfit! Sharpen your CV! Brush up on your history of the Royals! Surprised at the last one? While not every job obviously requires an innate knowledge of the British Monarchy, if you want to work for the triumphant royal trio that is Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry — yes, they are hiring!  — we imagine you’ll have to know at least a few Trivial Pursuit-worthy facts before applying.

Do you want to be their lucky employee? Well, not only is it very possible, it’s a genuine job ad, with a sprinkling of royalty to boot. To apply, you must be qualified for a ‘Senior Communications Officer,’ which entails working “both reactively and proactively to manage the daily news flow to the media, and communicating with audiences via traditional, digital and social media.” Kensington Palace is looking for someone for a maternity cover contract with extensive communications experience, a relevant degree or qualifications, and “the ability to handle sensitive information with tact and discretion at all times.”

The job spec continues: “The successful candidate will lead on communications plans and the delivery of engagements and overseas tours. Drafting and circulating Press Lines will also be a key part of the role, as well as organising and giving press briefings and handling out of hour’s media enquiries. They will conduct research for special projects and contribute to strategic discussions, actively making decisions where required.”

And it probably goes without saying that those of us who have a slight obsession with Kate’s beauty routine and/or every outfit she wears as well as proudly displaying a beloved ‘Will & Kate’ coaster on their desk (I feel you judging me) should consider gracefully bowing out before the interview stage.

The downside is that you must be London-based to apply and you’ve only got three more days before applications close. What are you waiting for? Go! Go!
