Two new job vacancies have been posted on The Royal Household website — and there’s no experience necessary.
The advertised roles are for daily cleaners at Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The positions are full time or part-time, five days a week. The main objective is “knowing a room is spotless before thousands of visitors arrive.”
Candidates will be in charge of ensuring all areas including the visitor route, public areas, staff offices, State rooms, and accommodation look their very best.
As well as vacuum cleaning, dusting and bleaching, the winning candidates will also clean and care for “historic vases and irreplaceable paintings.”
Previous cleaning experience is not necessary, but the ideal candidates should have excellent teamwork skills.
“You clearly take care and pride in your work, and your keen attention to detail means that you aim for the highest standards in all that you do,” the advert reads. “It’s a busy environment, but with good time management skills, you’ll work with your team to get everything done.”
In return, you’ll get 33 days holiday. Free lunch is also thrown in.
There’s no salary listed, and previous research has shown us that there is a lot of discrepancy in the wages earned when working for Queen Elizabeth II, so it’s a bit of a gamble.
The closing dates for applications are July 20 and 23 for Holyroodhouse and Windsor respectively. If this sounds like your ideal role, you can apply here.
