It’s official, Queen Elizabeth is in the market for a Head of Digital Engagement.
Yep, the 93-year-old monarch is seeking a social media expert to help develop content and keep her connected with her millions of followers, according to a job posting on LinkedIn.
The posting, which went live on Thursday, redirects prospective applicants to the royal family’s own website, which contains further details on the position. The pay ranges from 45,000 to 50,000 pounds a year (based on experience), with a 37.5-hour, Monday-through-Friday work week. That’s about $67,000 with weekends off and free lunch, according to Buckingham Palace.
“It’s knowing your content will be viewed by millions,” the notice reads. “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 pressure...
And as of Thursday evening, 45 people had applied for the position through LinkedIn.
So, if you’re a social media guru with experience in “managing and editing high-profile websites, social media and other digital formats,” you better act fast—the application deadline for the current opening is December 24.
