The role, which is being advertised on LinkedIn, promises “exposure across the organisation” and the chance to get stuck into the co-ordination of the official royal programme of engagements around the UK and supporting the royal family’s official duties. So if you're looking for a job that involves travelling in a fast-paced environment from the get-go, you'll have to be quick with your application, as the closing date is listed as the 27 October 2019.

Buckingham Palace is looking for "highly experienced PA used to supporting board level individuals," who can remain "calm and organised even when under pressure." The right person will also have "superb interpersonal and communication skills, and will be at ease working as part of a team, and liaising with people at all levels." The job advert lists the working hours as 37.5 per week, over five days, Monday to Friday.

Although Buckingham Palace is the Queen's official London residence, it's very much a working building and is at the heart of some of the biggest formal events of the year, including Trooping the Colour, state visits and garden parties. The Royal Household regularly advertises jobs in Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace, Clarence House, Windsor Castle and more, including roles for butlers, footmen, gardeners, housekeepers, retail assistants and property administrators.
