It's knowing that you're helping to protect a world famous institution.

It's working in a team with a shared and unique purpose, joining the professional business behind the monarchy. This is what makes working for The Royal Household so different.

The Personnel Security team manage the security vetting procedures for everyone working in the Royal residences.  

As part of a dedicated team, you'll undertake verification checks that meet the diverse needs of our organisation, creating a safe and secure environment for all.

You'll conduct security clearances for employees, visitors and contractors. You'll also carry out pre-employment checks, working collaboratively with your team to deliver an exceptional personnel security verification service.

You'll be responsible for your own portfolio of work, and will regularly liaise with internal colleagues and external bodies. Keeping all our records up-to-date will be an important part of your role too. As well as the day-to-day, you'll help the wider team at events and with a range of projects.  

It's a fast paced environment, and you'll make important decisions every day. But whether you're processing clearance for an individual contractor, or supporting a large scale recruitment campaign, you'll always deliver with faultless accuracy.

The standards you aim for will be the biggest challenge, and the biggest reward.

And every day you'll deliver vital work that has an impact across the Royal Household.

Educated to degree level or equivalent, you'll already have some experience in a security vetting capacity or environment and be familiar with handling sensitive data.

To excel, you'll need to be naturally tenacious and enquiring, with a detail orientated and accurate approach to your work.

The ability to remain calm and level headed under pressure, think on your feet, and demonstrate good judgment and sound decision making in a fast paced environment will also be vital.

Utilising strong organisational skills and IT competence, you'll have the capability to process large volumes of information to meet tight deadlines.

As a strong communicator and with a collaborative approach, you'll build effective working relationships, both internally and externally to achieve the best results.

With a flexible approach to your work and excellent time management skills, you can effectively prioritise workloads in order to balance proactive and reactive demands.

Above all, you'll enjoy working collaboratively with colleagues in order to provide an excellent service.
