Overall, the main task is to keep the 1,200 employees of Buckingham Palace connected as many work remotely during the pandemic.

It's not clear, however, whether the successful applicant will be living at Buckingham Palace, or working from home for the time being, although they will surely be required to visit the building once the coronavirus crisis comes to an end.

Salary is listed at £27,000 per year, plus benefits, while we're sure you will agree that working for Her Majesty is a benefit in itself.

The role sits under the Privy Purse and Treasurer's Office.

The advert concludes: "As you support others, you'll have exceptional opportunities to grow your own career. We don't stand still here; and you'll be encouraged to make an impact at the heart of this world-famous institution".
