Lord Chamberlain’s Office
Central Office
Buckingham Palace
£27,000 per annum, with benefits plus a 15% non-contributory pension scheme.
Full-time, with occasional work outside of normal office working hours

It’s the satisfaction of delivering outstanding work, organising ceremonial activities that are enjoyed by millions. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

Joining the Lord Chamberlain’s Office, you’ll help to organise a broad range of ceremonial events. From Garden Parties and Investitures, to State Visits and Royal Weddings, you'll be supporting the success of some truly unique occasions. Liaising with a wide range of people internally and externally, you’ll assist with the detailed research and planning of events, ensuring they are delivered to the highest of standards. From diary management to website updates, you’ll also provide vital administrative support to the team every day. The standards you’ll aim for will provide the biggest challenge, and the greatest reward.

You will already have some experience in the research and planning of events, and along with your excellent organisational and time management skills, you will be eager to take on our varied and packed diary of events. Your attention to detail, along with your strong administrative, IT and written and verbal communication skills, will help you to thrive in this role. Some practical knowledge of the Offices of State, the Church and the Military would be an advantage but is not a requirement. Most importantly, with sound interpersonal skills and a supportive, proactive approach, you will work well within a team who always aim for the highest standard.

You can look forward to working in a unique and stimulating work environment, and be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme, lunch provided, and support for your continuous professional development.
