England Travel Jobs News
by Eben Diskin Sep 13, 2019

The Queen of England has been a busy boss lately, hiring a chef and social media manager in 2019 alone. Now, she needs a housekeeper at Buckingham Palace.

The job involves upkeep of the palace, as well as caring for a range of items to ensure that the iconic residence always looks its best. You will also be expected to attend to guests and work front-of-house to support functions and events. It’s safe to say that if you’re looking to further your career in the hospitality industry, this gig is a pretty good resume builder.

According to the job description, previous hospitality experience isn’t essential. What is required, however, is that the applicants are detail-oriented and always aim for the highest standards. The posting also asks that candidates be “well organized and with good time management skills.”

Although you will be based in either Buckingham Palace or Windsor, you will also have the opportunity to travel to other royal residences. Pay includes an extensive benefits package, 33 days of vacation, a 15 percent employer contribution pension scheme, and training and development. You also have the option to live on the property, for which there would be a salary adjustment.

Applications will be accepted until September 15, with interviews taking place on October 2.
