The Queen is hiring for a Buckingham Palace makeover. For the right applicant £30,000 could be on offer.
Her Majesty is looking for a painter and decorator to help complete a makeover at Buckingham Palace. The Palace has more than 700 rooms and the decorator will be responsible for adding “decorative finishes.”
The deadline for the full-time position is April 3. The Buckingham Palace renovation is expected to cost £369 million. The makeover is controversial though as more than 100,000 people have signed a position saying that the Royal family should cough up the cash for the refurb.
According to The Mirror, the advert reads: “It’s adding the decorative finishes, for people to appreciate for years to come.
“Its feeling inspired to deliver to the very highest standards, and it’s the pride in joining a team at the heart of a world famous institution. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.
“Joining a small team that provide both internal and external redecoration services across various Royal residences, you’ll make sure that all decorative works are completed to the highest level of finish.
“Covering a number of buildings across the London Estates, you’ll carry out inspections and identify rooms that need your attention, before making sure they are expertly renewed and fit for purpose.
“Working in such uniquely historic environments means you’ll have the opportunity to expand your existing skills. You’ll regularly handle specialist wall coverings, sign-writing and use specialist paint finishes, such as marbling and gilding.”
The advert goes on to add: “Playing an essential part within the Property team, you’ll also help solve day-to-day maintenance issues that arise, and assist with preparation work for State, Ceremonial or Official Functions.
“In all that you do, you’ll aim for the highest standards. After all, the results of your hard work will be seen by thousands.”
