This Dream Job Will Pay You $70,000 to Hang Out With the Royals and Tweet About It
Everyone’s idea of a dream job differs. Perhaps it’s watching Netflix all day and being paid for it. Or maybe you’d rather travel the world while trying out beer and taking pics. But if you’re the type that loves Twitter and tiaras, princesses and podcasts, heirs and hashtags, then do we ever have the dream job for you. Buckingham Palace is looking for someone to hang with the Royals and tweet all the deets. Oh yeah, and get PAID for it!
Posting an ad for a “Head of Digital Engagement,” the info explains that it’s “about never standing still and finding new ways to maintain The Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.” No doubt! *practices a curtsy*
The pay is around £45,000 – £50,000 per year (which is approx. $70,000), which isn’t too shabby, but the gig also comes with some major perks… y’know, like the fact that your office will be in Buckingham freaking Palace!
And if you thought you’d just be tweeting random palace platitudes, think again. “Whether you’re covering a state visit, award ceremony or royal engagement, you’ll make sure our digital channels consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences.” State visit?! Royal engagement?! OMG cool!
If this sounds like the job of your dreams, then be sure to send in your application before April 24 to be Buckingham Palace’s new Head of Digital Engagement.
