​Buckingham Palace Is Looking For New Trainee Butler

​Buckingham Palace Is Looking For New Trainee Butler

You'd imagine working in Buckingham Palace would be pretty cool whatever it entailed - even cleaning the bogs would have some stories, surely.

But imagine if you got to be the damn BUTLER.

Well, now you can, as ol' Queenie is after one at Buckingham Palace within the Master of the Household's Office department, which handles all aspects of hospitality across the royal residences. No biggie, then.

It's a trainee role, so don't worry, you won't need to have been a butler for a queen before. Phew.

"Learning from our experienced team, you'll deliver a hospitality service to the highest standard," the ad on the Royal Household website reads.

"You'll deliver functions of all scales, from official lunches and receptions, to state occasions, providing an exceptional guest experience for all."

The full-time role is a live-in one, meaning you'll literally be hanging out (well, working) in Buckingham Palace all the time.

The pay is £19,935.80 per annum, but better still, MEALS ARE PROVIDED. Even if that just means spaghetti hoops on toast, it'd be pretty cool to eat your lunch in Buckingham Palace rather than the crappy canteen at work.

As for you? Previous hospitality experience would be an advantage but is 'not essential'.

"We're more interested in your proactive approach and ability to tackle new challenges," the ad explains.

You've also got to be an 'outstanding team player' who loves working alongside other people every day, as well as possessing a 'helpful and supportive' attitude.

"You'll already have a polite, friendly and approachable working style, and will be able to communicate with all kinds of people," the ad continues.

"You'll also have a good attention to accuracy and detail, and get satisfaction from a job well done, delivering work to a consistently high standard.

"And above all, you'll be committed to a career in hospitality and keen to develop your professional knowledge."

Think you're up for the job? You'd better get cracking - you have until 17 February to apply.

Other roles Liz is looking to fill include a housekeeper at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, a chef de partie and an IT operations manager at Buckingham Palace and a 'maintenance technician' over at Windsor Castle.
