It's developing your skills on a worldwide platform. 

This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional. 

The Royal Communications team promotes the work, role, relevance and value of the Royal Family to a worldwide audience.  

Joining this fast-paced and dynamic team, you'll help with both proactive and reactive communications.  

You'll handle queries from the press, prepare editorial website content, as well as manage the media for Royal engagements and official events in the UK and overseas.  

In a varied role which will develop your professional expertise, you'll assist with electronic press releases, media briefing notes and press announcements.  

You'll be supporting the official duties of a number of different members of the Royal Family. The reaction to our work therefore is always high-profile, and reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all that you do.  

Although based primarily at Buckingham Palace, you'll also travel in the UK or overseas to support important visits and engagements, which will expand your skills further. 

Whether covering a state visit, award ceremony or Royal engagement, you'll make sure our communications consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences.

Educated to degree level (or equivalent) and with some experience of working within a frontline communications environment, you'll be looking to further your career in this field. You'll also demonstrate good news sense, and will be up-to-date with current affairs and emerging communication ideas. 

Articulate, engaging and accurate writing skills will be absolutely vital, together with confidence in copywriting and editing content for different audiences.  

Your excellent interpersonal skills will also be important, enabling you to develop relationships with a wide range of people, both internal and external. 

It's a busy and fast-paced environment. You'll need to be extremely well organised with flexibility, able to think on your feet and prioritise in order to meet tight deadlines. 

With good judgement and sensitivity, you'll be calm and diplomatic but also assertive, and will be eager to proactively contribute new ideas and creative content. 

This is your opportunity to develop your career and deliver the exceptional. 

In return you will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday per annum (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility to increase contributions or draw down as salary) and support for your continued professional development.
