Time to switch careers?
This week however, the monarch made news as it was announced that she is hiring – something that is making a lot of us seriously consider a career move.
Yes, this is not a drill. The Queen is looking for a Property Project Manager, offering £40-50k per annum, depending on experience.
’It’s conserving the past, while developing its future,’ the job spec on the site reads. ‘It’s working as one to deliver impressive projects. And it’s the pride in leading a team at the heart of a world famous institution. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.’
What experience and qualities do you need?
Well, according to the job description, the successful candidate must be ‘chartered, with relevant qualifications and project management experience, ideally gained within historic occupied buildings’.
The desired qualities continues: ‘Organised, pro-active and with lots of initiative, you’ll know how to juggle a varied portfolio, and can adapt to tight deadlines and changing circumstances. With good analytical skills, pragmatism and pro-activity, you’re used to anticipating issues and coming up with innovative solutions.
‘Digitally fluent, organised and with an eye for detail, your record keeping and administration are second-to-none. A natural communicator and collaborator used to working with colleagues, contractors and in-house teams, you’ll quickly build credibility at all levels.’
Concluding the advert, they ask for ’an internal customer champion, with agility and resourcefulness, you’ll deliver projects that everyone will be proud about.’
The vacancy closes in two days.
