Imagine how Queen Elizabeth II’s day would go: she presumably wakes up so early, eats breakfast, sees the day’s appointments, and finally continues to go about her usual royal engagements. How are her daily musings different than ours?
Of course, no matter how busy we get, we find time to check social media because it’s one way to get in touch with the world. But for the 93-year-old monarch, she has no time to scroll Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
Heck, Her Royal Highness might not have the energy to do that after a tiring day at work. However, reaching out to the younger generation and other people from around the world is extremely important, which is why Queen Elizabeth is hiring a digital engagement guru and she is willing to pay $67,000 for the right person.
Finding the Right Candidate
According to the LinkedIn post (yes, the royals have a collective account to post job openings), Queen Elizabeth is looking for the individual who can make Her Majesty felt by the public. The right person will be responsible for engaging with different people from all sides of the world.
The candidate shall lead a group of digital media specialists and brainstorm content for all the channels.
The hired staff must be on top of royal engagement coverage and ensure that the channels tickle the curiosity of the audience. Plus, the digital engagement head must make sure that the content will reach a vast array of people.
As expected of the role, the deserving candidate should have experience and is considered an expert. Specifically, the individual must be good at using analytics tools, social media channels, and content management systems. You also need to have writing and editing skills as well as creativity for the designing of the content.
Salary and Benefits
As for the benefits, the hired individual will be given free lunch, training, a 15-percent pension contribution, and 33 holidays. Depending on your experience, you will be paid up to $67,000 a year for the role of the digital engagement head.
Looking for a Chef
Previously, the royal family sought a chef with an annual salary of $27,629, which is quite below the median salary of more or less $39,000, according to the Office for National Statistics in the United Kingdom.
Therefore, the amount is quite surprising because you wouldn’t imagine such low pay from one of the most powerful clans. Add to that, they have high expectations of the right candidate who needs to be ambitious.
