Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry are hiring a new comms officer
If your dream job is to work at Kensington Palace, now is the time to freshen up your CV.
The households of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry are seeking a fulltime senior communications officer to support their official work, particularly on the Royal Foundation.
The royal trio posted a job vacancy on LinkedIn and the palace’s official website, detailing the role requirements – and yes, “tact and discretion at all times” is an essential requisite for the job.
According to the job post, the role is to “manage the daily news flow to the media, ensuring items are accurately and positively reported and received by audiences via traditional, digital and social media”.
The successful candidate will also need to produce creative communications campaigns, write press releases, give press briefings and respond to media enquiries. More importantly, the candidate will “play a key role in the development and implementation of the communications strategy for The Royal Foundation,” working alongside both the Foundation’s CEO and communications secretary.
Based at Kensington Palace itself for 37.5 hours per week, the role requires someone with the “ability to make decisions, using integrity and judgment whilst exercising caution”.
“It is also an essential requisite for the job, as is the ability to handle sensitive information with tact and discretion at all times.”
