Buckingham Palace seeks digital PR specialist as Queen marks 90th

As the Queen celebrates her 90th birthday with a blast of pomp and circumstance Buckingham Palace is quietly seeking to ensure continued public support for the monarchy behind the scenes by enlisting a new head of digital engagement.

The £50k per year role will see the chosen individual report directly to the private secretary’s office and will be tasked principally with ‘finding new ways to maintain The Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage’.

Amongst other tasks this will entail development of a digital communication strategy and editorial leadership to improve the official website of The British Monarchy.

A job ad read: “Whether you're covering a state visit, award ceremony or royal engagement, you'll make sure our digital channels consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences.

“The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation, brand and impact will be at the forefront of all you do.”

Amongst the perks of the 37.5hr a week job are free lunches, 33 days annual leave, training and a 15 per cent employer contribution to your pension.
