The Queen Is Hiring! Buckingham Palace Has a Job Opening — Including Live-in Accommodations
"But that's not all. We're just as focused on our external audience, explaining who we are and the work we do in order to attract future talent. And so as brand ambassador for our recruitment communications, you'll lead on the development of our external web and social media presence," the listing adds of the position, whose managers will be accepting applications for through Feb. 7.
According to The Royal Household, the palace is also currently hiring for four other positions: a design and development assistant, a retail financial analyst, a warehouse operative and a digital learning advisor — the latter of which, like the senior employee communications assistant job, will be at Buckingham Palace.
The job openings come eight months after around 380 employees — who had been hired as guides and to help staff the palace's annual summer exhibit — were laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, before they'd even started work.
"The roles were for around 380 temporary summer staff on three-month contracts. They were recruited earlier this year for the Buckingham Palace opening, which now isn't going ahead," a spokesperson for the Royal Collection told PEOPLE at the time. "They have all been given the option to carry over the offer for next summer."

"The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have today received Covid-19 vaccinations," a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told PEOPLE at the time.
