Queen hiring live-in trainee cleaner to work at Windsor Castle for £19k-a-year

The Queen is hiring an apprentice cleaner for Windsor Castle.

The job pays £19,140 a year and doesn't require previous experience or qualifications in English or Maths.

Instead candidates will learn on the job and get to live at either Windsor Castle or the Queen's London home, Buckingham Palace.

The job ad says they’re looking for a “commitment to learning new skills” and a “willingness to tackle new challenges”.

Successful candidates will be supported by a mentor during the 13-month Level 2 Housekeeping Apprenticeship before joining the permanent team to deliver “exceptional standards”.

The housekeeper will get to travel to other royal homes for around three months of the year and 33 days' holiday, the Sun reports.

Meals will be provided and travel expenses included for those who opt to live at one of the royal residences – although the salary will be adjusted.

The job ad adds you’ll need to manage the “upkeep, clean and care” of lavish interiors and priceless items, ensuring they’re “presented to their very best”.

It stated: “You’ll gain specialist technical skills that will form the foundations of your housekeeping career, as well as providing you with an understanding of the wider hospitality profession.

“Above all, you’ll be keen to take every opportunity to gain experience and build on your learning to become a housekeeping expert.”

Ideally the Queen is looking for someone who’s well organised with good time management skills, pays attention to detail, enjoys working with others and is able to meet deadlines.
