- Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are hiring a senior communications officer. The successful applicant will handle social media for the trio. The closing date is October 26 at 11.55.p.m.
Kate, William, and Harry are arguably the most down-to-earth royals of all time – and you could say they’d make for decent bosses.
And if you’ve always fancied a royal job title, you could be in luck.
Kensington Palace has posted a job listing for a senior communications officer to do the social media for Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a maternity cover contract.
Specifically, the role will entail delivering daily news and updates to the media, and communicating with audiences via traditional, digital, and social media.
The successful candidate will “lead communications plans and the delivery of engagements and overseas tours,” according to the post. They will also be in charge of writing press releases and giving press briefings.
They’ll be required to work a typical 37.5 hour-week, but will also handle out-of-hour media enquiries.
While the salary is unknown, a Digital Communications Officer vacancy was advertised on the Queen’s website earlier this year for £30,000 per year, while in 2016 the Royal Household was hunting for a Social Media Specialist for £50,000 per year.
In order to apply, applicants must have “extensive experience within communications, marketing, or media, with a relevant degree or equivalent qualification. The ability to make decisions, using integrity and judgment whilst exercising caution is also an essential requisite for the job, as is the ability to handle sensitive information with tact and discretion at all times.”
If this sounds like you, you’d better be quick as the closing date for applications is tomorrow – October 26 – at 11.55 p.m.
