For all job seekers, Queen Elizabeth II might have an opportunity for you, that is, if you are willing to work for minimum wage.

The Royal Family have a vacancy for a part-time housekeeper at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The successful candidate will work 20 hours and four days a week and will be paid around CAD $16 per hour, which is equivalent to what the UK minimum wage will be in April 2022.

“This is a hospitality career path that will develop your housekeeping skills and expertise,” the job posting reads. “By joining our team of professionals, you will maintain, clean and care for a wide range of interiors and objects, ensuring they are presented in their best light.”

The successful candidate will also be offered a 15% employer pension contribution, 33 days vacation and a “comprehensive benefits package”.

Ideally, the Palace is looking for someone with previous experience in housekeeping or hospitality, someone who pays attention to detail and enjoys working in a team.

“Above all, you’ll be eager to learn new skills and develop a career in hospitality,” the job posting reads. “This is your opportunity to use your enthusiasm and interest in hospitality to deliver the exceptional.”

According to the Royal Collection Trust, the Palace of Holyroodhouse covers four acres, the majority of which are gardens. The palace has 289 rooms, 387 windows and 106 employees.

The annual garden party is the largest gathering on the grounds each year, when the palace welcomes 8,000 guests to the premises. Guests enjoy approximately 15,000 cups of tea, 9,000 strawberry pies and 7,000 sandwiches during the event.

Interested applicants will need to act quickly, as the job posting closes on January 21 at 23:55 GMT.

Otherwise, the royal family has 26 other vacancies to choose from, including posts as security guard and head gardener.
