Fancy a job inside the Buckingham Palace? The Queen is looking for a new chauffeur

Look what we came across over the internet, a rare job advert on the official website of the British Monarchy. Britain’s royal family is on the hunt for a new chauffeur to ferry the Queen and her family to official engagements. It’s a 48-hour work week, pays only £23,000-£24,000 ($35,000 to $37,000 approximately) a year, but live in accommodation, free meals and 33 days holiday are just some of the perks on offer. To apply, you have to be a U.K. resident and have a valid driving license. The successful candidate will have a permanent position as the queen’s chauffeur, who will drive around members of the royal family, household officials and special guests.

The official listing on the website specifies that the employee will keep all the vehicles in pristine condition and contribute to the running and management of the Royal Mews Garage, which looks after all the state vehicles. Among the fleet of cars, the candidate could expect to drive the Queen’s 2002 Bentley, which serves as her primary car for state and ceremonial occasions. Applications close on 8 March, and candidates are expected to undergo a rigorous selection process.
