The Queen Is Hiring A Social Media Manager And You Can Apply
How’s your ‘gram game?
Can you use social media? Can you ‘like’, tag and ‘share’ with the best of them? Are you not terrible at taking photos?
Then update your resume because Her Majesty The Queen is hiring someone to take over her ‘gram.
We can picture it now; selfies with baby Archie, compliments from Queen Liz (as you will call her) on your witty captions and heartfelt comments, trying to remember to switch accounts when you go to send ‘personal’ snaps…
On the official job listings board, the Royal Private Secretary’s Office (located at Buckingham freakin’ Palace) is seeking a Digital Communications Manager who will find "new ways to maintain The Queen's presence in the public eye and on the world stage," on her official digital and social media platforms.
Launched earlier this year, the @theroyalfamily Instagram account has5.9 million followers, posting a variety of photos spanning event attendance, family moments, and portraits like this:
The role will entail coverage of state visits, award ceremonies, and Royal engagements, as well as writing feature articles for the new Royal website.
Also - and they’ve put this bit in bold - the role means "knowing your content will be viewed by millions."
So basically, you need to be able to handle the world judging your ‘gram game.
The position is for 37.5 hours a week, and will pay “£30,000, dependent on experience” - so around AUD$55,800 a year.
The perks aren’t half bad, described as “a comprehensive benefits package” which includes: “a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (after six months), 33 days annual leave, including bank holidays, free lunch and access to training and development to support your continuous professional development.”
