A very unique job opportunity has come up to oversee the Queen’s – yes, Queen Elizabeth II, the world’s longest reigning monarch – social media presence.
The job vacancy was posted by the Royal Household on job sites like LinkedIn this week and advertises for a ‘natural communicator’ to maintain the ‘Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage’.
The role is titled Digital Communications Officer and included in the job would be creating content for Instagram, Twitter and the royal family’s website, researching and writing articles and generally covering the Queen’s engagements like state visits and award ceremonies.

As far as job location goes, you couldn’t really get more central London with the office being based in Buckingham Palace.
So, who would be a good fit for the role? The household says the ideal candidate would be educated to a degree level, have experience of managing a website and creating digital and social media content, be ‘innovative with creative flair’ and have great writing and photography skills.
‘A natural communicator with a genuine user focus, you’re self-assured liaising effectively with a broad spectrum of people on a daily basis,’ the ad reads, reminding us that this ‘broad spectrum’ most likely includes the royal family.
We’re also guessing those who work well under pressure will be a good fit because, as the post specifies, your ‘content will be viewed by millions’.
What’s more the benefits are not too shabby with 33 days annual leave and free lunch. The job is Monday to Friday and on a standard 37.5 hours contract.
Right, where do we apply?
