FANCY a part-time job? But have you got it in you polish with ‘community spirit’? If yes, this could be for you.

The Royal family is hiring a cleaner to join its Windsor Palace staff, a new advert on the Buckingham Palace website shows.

The role, which is based at the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s residence, is described as delivering an ‘extraordinary service in incredible surroundings’.

The position involves the ‘upkeep and care of a wide range of interiors and items’, as well as supporting events and functions at the palace.

The annual salary is £14,742, in return for 30 hours a week from Monday through to Sunday.

The advert, which describes working at the palace as joining a team with ‘community spirit, encompasses a role responsible for ‘helping to deliver extraordinary service in incredible surroundings. ‘

The advert reads: ‘This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different.

‘Joining our professional team at Windsor Castle, you’ll upkeep, clean and care for a wide range of interiors and items, ensuring they’re presented to their very best.

‘Learning from your colleagues, you’ll gain the specialist professional skills needed, always aiming for the highest standards. And on occasion you’ll support functions and events at the Castle too.’

BUT before you make the blunder of rushing to send your CV with a post-it of how the job would ‘fulfil childhood dreams of working for the palaces’, James Upsher, an ex Communications Manager at LinkedIn, who has worked as an Assistant Private Secretary to the York family for almost four years, advises to keep certain childhood fantasies to oneself. But does recommend highlighting any connections to the Commonwealth in your address book.
