The Queen is hiring a kitchen porter at Buckingham Palace

Fancy working in the catering business but don’t have any experience? Lucky for you, Queen Elizabeth is hiring a new kitchen porter, and no experience is needed!

The full-time position will be between a five or seven day work week with an annual salary of £19,935.80.

The advertisement states that no catering experience is needed for the kitchen porter role, as training will be provided.

The right candidate will receive free meals, 33 days annual holiday, and a 15 per-cent employer contribution pension scheme.

The job posting on the Royal Household’s website reads: “It’s working as a team to achieve exceptional results.

“It’s having a shared and unique purpose, joining a professional team who deliver extraordinary service. This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different.

“You’ll join a committed kitchen team who work together to prepare and serve food to the very highest standards.

“By maintaining the kitchen and clear-up areas you’ll ensure our chefs and assistants have all they need to deliver meals throughout the day. You’ll also on occasion assist with food preparation.

“And whether you’re based in Buckingham Palace or travelling to other locations, you’ll ensure all kitchens are presented to the same exceptional standard.”

There are traits needed for the position: “Most important is that you’re a natural team player, happy to get involved, use initiative and work with your colleagues to achieve a smooth daily service.

“You clearly take care and pride in your work, and so aim to deliver great results in all that you do.

“A good understanding of food hygiene and safety would be beneficial, but it’s not necessary, as if you don’t have experience in this area we’ll organise training for you.

“Above all, you’re keen to develop your skills and gain experience in an exceptional catering environment.”
