Take note if you’re a social media guru with a touch of Royal fever – Buckingham Palace is hiring.
The Royals are currently advertising for a digital communications officer to join the private secretary’s office.
The job ad asks for a “natural communicator” who can “engage a worldwide audience with the public role and work of The Royal Family”.
It would involve creating content for Instagram, Twitter and the royal family’s website, researching and writing articles and covering all the Queen’s royal duties.
The ideal candidate will also have video and photography skills, along with a touch of “creative flair”.
The Royals are seeking someone educated to a degree level, with experience in managing a website and creating digital and social content.
Based in London, the job pays circa £30,000 ($55,701 AUD) and has perks like free lunch.
The position has popped up just a few months after the Queen made her first Instagram post (a photo of her visit to the Science Museum).
The post was made from the @TheRoyalFamily account, but was signed with Elizabeth R.

Today, as I visit the Science Museum I was interested to discover a letter from the Royal Archives, written in 1843 to my great-great-grandfather Prince Albert. Charles Babbage, credited as the world’s first computer pioneer, designed the “Difference Engine”, of which Prince Albert had the opportunity to see a prototype in July 1843. In the letter, Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention the “Analytical Engine” upon which the first computer programmes were created by Ada Lovelace, a daughter of Lord Byron. Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children’s computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post, at the Science Museum which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.

The job vacancy closes on 26 May, so if you think you have what it takes to gram for the Queen, you better start polishing up that CV.
