Posted to the Royal Household‘s official website, they say that they are looking for someone “to manage and oversee the daily news flow on digital and social networking platforms, as well as play a key part in some of the digital projects”.

The Private Secretary’s Office adds: “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.”

So, what qualifications is the Royal Household looking for as ‘official tweeter?’

The description states that you should be:

  • Educated to degree level with previous experience of managing websites and delivering successful digital communications and projects, preferably in a high-profile environment.
  • With experience of creating and publishing digital and social media content, you’ll be confident using a range of content management systems, social media platforms and analytics tools.
  • You’ll need good photography skills with experience producing live social media content, and video production skills would also be highly desirable.
  • Holding supervisory experience, you’ll know how to motivate and develop others.
  • Innovative and with creative flair, you’ll also have accurate and compelling written and editorial skills, with expertise in designing digital content for different audience groups, purpose and formats.

Tick all the boxes? Then you could be looking forward to a comprehensive benefits package, including a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (after 6 months), 33 days annual leave, including bank holidays, and access to training and development to support your continuous professional development.
