THE Queen is hiring a painter decorator to give Buckingham Palace a lick of paint.
Her Majesty wants an artist to help redecorate her London home and other Royal residences.
The 40 hours per week gig will pay from £28,000-£30,000 a year, depending on experience – and the painter will inspect lavish abodes and identify rooms that need a spruce up.
The successful candidate must have a passion for historic buildings, an eye for detail, good communication and leadership skills, and the ability to deliver under pressure.
It comes as Buckingham Palace is undergoing a 10-year renovation project, which is due for completion in 2027 and is tipped to cost taxpayers £369 million.
The Royal Household’s job advert states: “It’s adding the decorative finishes, for people to appreciate for years to come. Its feeling inspired to deliver to the very highest standards, and it’s the pride in joining a team at the heart of a world famous institution. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.
“Joining a small team that provide both internal and external redecoration services across various Royal residences, you’ll make sure that all decorative works are completed to the highest level of finish.
“Covering a number of buildings across the London Estates, you’ll carry out inspections and identify rooms that need your attention, before making sure they are expertly renewed and fit for purpose. Working in such uniquely historic environments means you’ll have the opportunity to expand your existing skills.”
