Fancy becoming a cleaner to The Queen? Windsor Castle is searching for a new daily cleaner, meaning you could help care for hundreds of years of royal history.

“Working as a team to achieve exceptional results,” the new cleaner will ideally have previous experience in housekeeping or the hospitality industry. Windsor Castle’s newest employee must also have a sharp eye for detail and be prepared to “deliver to the highest standard.”

The daily cleaner will be responsible for cleaning and upkeep of a wide range of items and interiors at Windsor Castle, ensuring they’re presented to their very best both to visitors from around the world and to the Royal Family.

Speaking of the Royal Family, the new hire will have the opportunity to support special events at the castle from time to time.

Further training and development also are provided, ensuring employees can grow in their role.

“It’s the collaboration and the community spirit,” the job listing on the Royal Household’s site states. “And it’s helping to deliver extraordinary service in incredible surroundings. This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different.”

“Highly efficient and proactive, and with good time management skills, you’re able to prioritise and manage a busy daily workload.”

“And with a positive and flexible approach to work, you’re happy to get involved in a range of duties, supporting the wider team. Above all, you will be eager to learn and develop your skills. This is your opportunity to use your enthusiasm and passion to deliver the exceptional.”

The position, which pays £14,742 per year, including a 15% employer contribution pension scheme, reports to the Master of the Household’s Office and is 30 hours per week, Monday to Sunday.

If you think your cleaning skills are up to the royal standards, apply on their website by 24 November.
