Last year, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in history. Every time Queen Elizabeth, or another Royal Family member, steps out in public, all eyes fall on them.
Now, a commoner has the opportunity to rub elbows with the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family on a daily basis. The Buckingham Palace just revealed that they are looking to hire!
According to TODAY, the Palace is currently hiring a sous chef. As is expected for this once in a lifetime opportunity, the Palace’s requirements for this position are extremely rigid.
The employee will reportedly work alongside the Buckingham Palace’s Head Chef. The position requires a background in catering and training specifically in classic French cuisine.
Beyond the cooking abilities, the Palace requires that the applicants can demonstrate leadership and communication skills.
The listing stated, “You’ll be committed to achieving high standards every day, making you a real asset to the kitchen team.”
Although the job listing did not include the salary, it did include some of the many perks of the job. The chef will be based in London but will be able to travel to other royal residences. The job includes full-time housing at the Palace, all meals provided, a 15% employer-contributed pension, and 33 days of vacation.
According to the Palace’s website, the position for the sous chef will remain open through October 19, 2018.
According to previous reports, Queen E is relatively picky when it comes to her food. Recently, she decided she wouldn’t eat any more pasta, potatoes, or rice. Additionally, she doesn’t like garlic or “too many onions.”
Meanwhile, Prince Harry loves anything with bananas in it, Prince William has a major sweet tooth, and Prince George and Princess Charlotte love classic kid’s food like pizza and pasta. The new sous chef will have to cater to everyone’s needs!
