IF you're cleaning-obsessed and in need of some part-time work then look no further because the Queen is searching for a daily cleaner at Windsor Castle for a salary of up to £14,500 a year.
So, if cleaning and caring for a range of Royal interiors and items sounds like your idea of a good time, this job could be the one for you.
The enviable new vacancy posted on The Royal Household careers page, is asking for someone to join their professional team to ensure every surface, wall and skirting is squeaky clean – and occasional support functions and events at the Castle, too.
In brief, it will be your job to make sure the palace is fit for a Queen, or King, or any future royal to step foot in the place for that matter – simply by Hinching your way around the place.
The job description reads: "Joining our professional team at Windsor Castle, you'll upkeep, clean and care for a wide range of interiors and items, ensuring they're presented to their very best.
"Learning from your colleagues, you'll gain the specialist professional skills needed, always aiming for the highest standards. And on occasion you’ll support functions and events at the Castle too.
And continued: "In an environment where development and training is commonplace, you’ll be able to grow your skills within your role."
I know what you're thinking, "I can clean, hang with the royals AND get paid?" – and the answer is a very big yes.
But do bear in mind that previous housekeeping or hospitality experience is a requirement – and your hours of home Hinching doesn't count, we checked already.
Unless of course you are a professionally trained, than please apply within – but do be quick because the closing date is the 8th March.
But if you need more detail tin order to decide if this job is for you, the ideal candidate is also required to be highly efficient and proactive as well as having good time management skills being able to prioritise and manage a busy daily workload.
Of course, we saved the best part til last – while the job requires 20 to 30 hours a week of polishing and hoovering, the hours are between 7 am and 12 pm meaning you have afternoons free to do as you please.
The chosen candidate will also be rewarded with a winning benefits package including a 15% employer contribution pension scheme and access to a range of catering and recreational facilities.
And while it's not known how many people have applied for the gig since its advertised date, we do know that it sounds too good to be true and that your cleaning abilities will most definitely be put to the test.
But don't fret if this isn't the job for you, or if you aren't qualified. You can check for other roles and apply on the Royal Household website.
