Another day, another opportunity to work for the royal family. This summer, Queen Elizabeth II put out a call for both a digital communications officer and a property manager. Now, she’s hiring a housekeeping assistant to tidy up Buckingham Palace, and it could be you.

If hired, you’ll work for the Master of the Household’s Office in hospitality. According to the job listing, previous experience with housekeeping and/or hospitality is preferred, but not essential. The ideal candidate will pay close attention to detail, take pride in their work, be extremely well-organized, have good time management skills, and be able to meet deadlines quickly and efficiently.

“This is a career pathway in hospitality that will develop your housekeeping skills and expertise,” the job listing reads. “Joining our professional team, you’ll upkeep, clean and care for a wide range of interiors and items, ensuring they’re presented to their very best.”

The housekeeping assistant job is full-time at five days a week. It’ll be based in either London or Windsor Castle and there will be some travel involved to various royal residences—meaning there’s always a chance you’ll get to help tidy up Frogmore Cottage, home of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Baby Archie.

The job also has the option to be live-in, so this is really your chance to live like a royal in the palace. Benefits are competitive and include a 15% employer contribution pension plan, access to catering and recreational facilities, and 33—yes, you read that correctly—days off.
