Here’s your change to call the queen “Boss.” Not that we’d suggest you should do that, however. Buckingham Palace is currently on the hunt for a Project Property Manager, and judging from the job posting, it’s the perfect gig for someone equally obsessed with HGTV and all things royal.

The highly coveted gig has the title of “Project Property Manager,” and is a 37.5-hours-per-week role maintaining all the royal renovations, meaning you’ll be keeping the royal family’s residences and properties in tip-top shape. Or as the job posting calls it, “conserving the past, while developing its future.” The new Property Project Manager will manage the massive portfolio of properties across the Royal estate in London, making sure renovations, schedules, and all activities are on schedule and completed to the highest standards. 

“Every day, like every project, will be different,” the job posting reads. “With each new project, you’ll have exceptional opportunities to grow your own career. We don’t stand still here; and your ideas will make an impact at the heart of our world-famous institution.”

The ideal candidate is described as “chartered,” with relevant qualifications and project management experience. They’re hoping for an organized, pro-active employee with “lots of initiative” and an ability to juggle a diverse portfolio that requires tight deadlines. Candidates should also have “good analytical skills, pragmatism, and pro-activity,” as well as being “digitally fluent,” detail-oriented, and a “natural communicator and collaborator” who can work well with all other members of the royal family’s team. They also want you to be an “internal customer champion, with agility and resourcefulness,” whatever that means. 

The job’s salary is £40,000 to £50,000, which comes out to $48,446 to $60,582 in US dollars. But the chance to get up close and personal with Queen Elizabeth? Now that’s priceless.
