Queen Elizabeth is out here on LinkedIn, and considering she has a pretty stable job going for her, she’s not there to take the next step in her career.
In fact, she’s looking to hire someone: a new social media manager. After the first round of internet witnesses did their amateur sleuthing and it became clear that this was, in fact, a legitimate profile and job listing, Metro News sought out the queen to get the details of this offer directly.
It turns out the Queen wants someone to keep up her presence in the public eye through social media channels. She’s looking for someone with a certain “creative flair” to do the best job – and decided LinkedIn is the best place to find them. Well, she’s not wrong; for starters, it is 2019. And beyond that, everyone knows nothing is original anymore, but the closest thing you can find to originality (at least, in the world wide web) usually comes from the younger generations.
The queen and the experts she works with have not been shy about the widespread reach of the content this job will be responsible for producing, emphasizing that the role needs to know that the material will be “viewed by millions.” Tell us how you really feel! On top of that, the role will keep the candidate very busy, requiring the hired professional to stay on their feet, “never standing still and continuously finding new ways to present and represent the everyday life of the palace on the world stage. “This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional,” the listing reads. “The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all you do. And having your work shared around the world will be the biggest reward.”
For anyone who has experience working in social media and a passion for the crown and all things royal, this could be the job of their dreams. Candidates must also have “exemplary and compelling writing and editorial skills.” The official job title is Head of Digital Engagement; the working week will require about 37.5 hours on the job, and the salary will be between £45,000 and £50,000 (about $59,000 – $65,000).
Those interested can apply until the December 24th deadline, and prospectives will be interviewed in January 2020.
