Buckingham Palace is looking for “highly experienced PA used to supporting board level individuals,” who can remain “calm and organised even when under pressure.” The right person will also have “superb interpersonal and communication skills, and will be at ease working as part of a team, and liaising with people at all levels.” The job advert lists the working hours as 37.5 per week, over five days, Monday to Friday.
In return for your hard work, the role has a competitive salary and benefits package, plus the pride that comes with working for one of the most famous families in the world.
Although Buckingham Palace is the Queen’s official London residence, it’s very much a working building and is at the heart of some of the biggest formal events of the year, including Trooping the Colour, state visits and garden parties. The Royal Household regularly advertises jobs in Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace, Clarence House, Windsor Castle and more, including roles for butlers, footmen, gardeners, housekeepers, retail assistants and property administrators.
