Want To Work For Prince William And Kate Middleton? You Need To Hurry

There’s only a few days left to get your application into one of the most coveted positions ever. October 26 is the deadline for anyone who wants to apply to work with the Royal Family (we’re not talking about you, Kardashians).

Kensington Palace is hiring a senior communications officer to support the work of Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton. The full time role is a fixed term, maternity cover contract and requires about 38 hours a week. The gig will involve a focus on charity work, along with managing daily news flow to the press and communicating with audiences on traditional, digital and social media.

And before you start polishing up on your British accent, you should know the position, which is posted on LinkedIn of all places, is already closed on the popular networking site (most likely due to an overwhelming number of applications). However, it appears applications are still being accepted on the official Royal site.

According to the LinkedIn posting:
The successful candidate will play a key role in the development and implementation of the communications strategy for The Royal Foundation and producing and delivering creative communications campaigns. They will take the lead on The Royal Foundation communications plans and the delivery of engagements as necessary and will work closely with both TRH’s Communications Secretary and the CEO of the Foundation. Drafting and circulating Press Lines will also be a key part of the role, as well as organising and giving press briefings and responding to out of hour’s media enquiries. The Senior Communications Officer will also be required to conduct research for special projects and contribute to strategic discussions and will provide support to the overall Household communications team.

Applicants must have extensive experience within a marketing, media or PR office, with a relevant degree (or equivalent qualification) and, ideally, have experience of working within the charity sector. The ability to make decisions, using integrity and judgment whilst exercising caution, is also an essential requisite for the job, as is the ability to handle sensitive information with tact and discretion at all times.

The position was posted over the summer, so while it’s not impossible you’ll land the gig at this late juncture, it’s improbable. But you didn’t really want that job anyway, right?
