If you have been wanting to live your Downton Abbey fantasy, then you should know, the Queen of England is looking to hire a new butler at Buckingham Palace.
But just know that the role does pay a little less than the current average living wage in the UK, however, it does come with some perks.
Here are some details of the role:
Starting salary is £20,806 per annum, or $26,739.66 USD
Working hours are 45 per week, Monday through Sunday.
While previous hospitality experience is certainly an advantage, it’s not essential. The palace is more interested in a candidate that is proactive in your approach and ability to tackle challenges.
Not only can you look forward to working in a very unique environment, but you’ll also have a decent benefits package that includes 33 days of vacation (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme, meals provided, as well as support of your continued professional development. Besides that, the best perk is this role is a live-in-role, meaning you’ll be given accommodation – for which your salary will get abated.
The free accommodation part is a great perk given that London accommodation can be bleak at times. The average rent for a two-bedroom private rented house in London is £1,730 compared to the average £820 across the rest of England.
