It pays to hang out with the royals, literally. The official website of the British Monarchy has posted a job vacancy for someone who can hang out with Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton and their brood and tweet about it.

The Royal family is looking for someone who can fill the position of Head of Digital Entertainment. The pay is £ 45,000 to £ 50,000 (AU$83,360 to AU$92,620), depending on experience, per annum, including comprehensive benefits package. The successful candidate is expected to provide digital and editorial leadership to a small team of digital media specialists, manage a newly launched website, and improve the British royalty’s digital presence.

“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 job role reads.

As Harper’s Bazaar has interpreted it, the job means hanging out with the royals wherever they are so that their official engagements are thoroughly documented on social media. The job also requires the person to manage and edit high profile websites and social media sites, as well as other digital formats.

So when William and Kate are off to a royal engagement in another country, the Head of Digital Entertainment would be among their entourage. Or if William and Harry are invited to another tour on the set of “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” it’s a must that there are social media documentations of their visit, perhaps particularly on Twitter.

The job description did not mention who among the royal family should the Head of Digital Entertainment follow, but it’s likely everyone, including Queen Elizabeth II herself.

The job is permanent and requires 37.5 hours per week. It has annual leaves, 15 percent employer contribution pension scheme and free lunch among other benefits. Application is open until April 24 only.
