Queen Elizabeth II Is Looking for a Chef
Buckingham Palace is looking for an “ambitious” chef with “exceptionally high standards.”
“You may have some previous experience within a premier kitchen or volume catering environment, but it’s your ability and enthusiasm to deliver across all sections of the kitchen that we're looking for,” the posting says.
Candidates should also work well in a team and have strong communication skills.
“Most importantly though, you have a clear passion for food and the catering industry, and will be eager to learn new skills,” the posting adds.
The role is based in London, and requires travel to other royal residences like Balmoral, in Scotland.
The job comes with a benefits package including 33 vacation days, a 15 percent employer contribution to the employee’s pension, and all meals on duty. There's also the option to live-in and have meals provided, with a small salary adjustment.
Beyond the job listing, there are a few things for any chef to remember about the Queen and her eating habits. For example, she never eats shrimp, and detests garlic.
