Prince & Princess of Wales

The Prince and Princess of Wales put out an advert for a CEO

The Prince and Princess of Wales are looking to add a Chief Executive Officer for their household, and the job could be yours if you have a “low ego” and are progressive and innovative in your work.

The job posting on the Odgers Berndston recruiting website quickly went viral on the internet, thanks in part to the choice to call the position the CEO rather than a Master of the Household, as is the traditional term.

William and Catherine are looking to hire someone based out of Kensington Palace who will make trips to Windsor Castle and trips both within the United Kingdom and internationally as the most senior person in their household.

The job posting states that the CEO will “report to TRHs The Prince and Princess of Wales, representing TRHs to the Household, leading the organisation, and supporting its senior leaders to deliver the work and impact of TRH’s official and private offices.”

Amongst their duties, the CEO will liaise with the other CEOs of The Earthshot Prize, the Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the Duchy of Cornwall to ensure continuous support of William’s and Catherine’s work.

This person will also be required to lead and oversee the 60-person staff already based within Wales’s household and work with the team at Buckingham Palace to ensure that their duties align in support of King Charles and Queen Camilla.

Key skills required of the CEO include the ability to build relationships “quickly and authentically with the ability to persuade, convene, facilitate, and build consensus” and demonstrating “exemplary judgement in order to bring well thought-through ideas, insights and challenges to TRHs.”

Resumes are being accepted online at the Odgers Berndston website.
