Queen advertises royal jobs

2011-02-22 15:10

London - If you were not lucky enough to be one of the 1 900 people invited to Prince William's upcoming wedding, then fear not: you could always get a job making coffee for the guests or washing up afterwards.

Queen Elizabeth has placed two job adverts on her website (, advertising for a General Assistant (Coffee Room) and a General Assistant (Wash-up).

Both pay about R162 000 a year and the posts are based at the monarch's Buckingham Palace residence in London although both appointees will have to travel to other royal homes around Britain.

The dish-washer must maintain "the cleanliness of the staff restaurant and wash-up areas" while the other employee will be in a team responsible for arranging trays for tea and coffee and breakfast with "the correct glass and porcelain".

If neither of those jobs grabs you, the queen is also looking for someone to earn up to R868 000 a year as Head of Royal Travel, with a brief to ensure the royal family travels cost-effectively and with an eye on environmental issues.
