It's supporting the team who deliver the highest standards of service

It’s the variety you’ll find in your role. And it's playing your part in delivering exceptional service. This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different.

The Master of the Household's department handles everything involved in the official and private entertaining across all the Royal residencies, delivering hundreds of events every year.

As a key point of contact for the catering team, you’ll provide administration, communication and co-ordination support to ensure the smooth running of our exceptional catering operations.

This is a varied role where no two days will be the same. You’ll help to prepare menus and production plans for the kitchens, support the management of events, and underpin the food purchasing function, liaising with a wide range of external suppliers.

Day-to-day, you’ll maintain our systems and records, manage diaries and arrange meetings. You’ll also use initiative to resolve queries and respond to external requests.

And whether you’re based at Buckingham Palace or travelling to other locations, you’ll develop your existing administrative skills and make an immediate contribution to this fast-paced and professional team.

With strong administration skills and a proactive approach, you'll be an asset to the team.

Efficient and well organised, you're confident handling different priorities and multiple deadlines effectively. Accuracy and attention to detail will also be key to the role.

And with versatile IT skills, you'll be familiar using Microsoft Office tools to help manage a busy workload, and you'll be able to quickly grasp bespoke applications.

Beyond your technical skills, excellent communication skills will prove vital, as you’ll be working with a range of different people.

At your best working in a team, you're able to work flexibly and with initiative to support your colleagues.

Above all, you'll be eager to take advantage of the unique learning opportunities that the Household presents.

This is your opportunity to use your experience and enthusiasm to deliver the exceptional.

This role will be based in London, and will involve travelling to other Royal residences for two months per year and weekend work when at other locations.

In return you will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility - to increase contributions or draw down as salary), lunch provided, with training and development, as well as a range of recreational facilities.
