Want to drive around with the Queen in a Rolls Royce? Heres your chance, as the monarch has advertised for a chauffeur and all you need is a UK driving license and some ” tact and diplomacy.” An advertisement on the Royal Fam

ilys official website shows a vacancy has arisen within the Lord Chamberlains Office for a driver based at Buckingham Palace. Candidates must have a full clean UK driving licence, ” clear communication skills” and ” an ability to deploy tact and diplomacy when necessary”. The 23,000 pounds- a- year job is based on working 48 hours a week with free accommodation available for the successful candidate wherever they travel to, the Daily Mail reported. It may seem like a small salary for such a high- profile role, but the chance to stay in palaces and castles is an opportunity many jobseekers will find difficult to turn down. The successful applicant will also need ” good administration skills with the experience of using email”. ” You will be responsible for driving members of the Royal Family, Household officials, guests and official visitors as directed by the Head Chauffeur,” the job description reads. The successful applicant will work five days out of seven and be principally based at the Royal Mews.
