Prince Charles and Camilla Are Hiring a Personal Assistant — Here’s How to Apply
You could work for the future King of England.
The British royal family is on a hiring spree. In 2018, the family hired a new communications assistant, a new butler, and even a kitchen porter. And now, just a few days into 2019, they are at it again. This time, however, it's a more personal role as Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are on the hunt for a personal assistant to come work with them at St. James Palace.
In the role, the new assistant will be responsible for plenty of personal matters for the future king and his wife. According to the job posting that includes: “managing diaries, arranging meetings, organizing and assisting with visits, events and travel, and undertaking recces with senior members of staff.” The assistant is also expected to handle all incoming telephone calls and respond to emails and inquires about the pair.
In order to be considered for the role, the right candidate must already possess personal assistant experience. He or she must also have experience managing “complex diaries” and be well-versed in drafting “high volume correspondence.” In other words, the right candidate has experience working for a CEO, celebrity, politician, or some other royal around the world.
The right person must also be a tech expert, be flexible, have “excellent organization and communication skills” and “a willingness to undertake a wide variety of tasks,” the job listing added. “Candidates will have the ability to liaise with a broad spectrum of people in order to develop good working relationships and will have experience of working constructively and collaboratively. The ability to maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion at all times is paramount.”
So, if you're good at just about everything you can go ahead and apply here. However, if you don't somehow already have these skills but still want to work for the royal family you could always try applying for one of their other current vacancies instead.
