A very unique job opportunity is now available to spearhead and oversee the Queen's—yes, Queen Elizabeth II, the world's longest reigning monarch—social media presence.

The job vacancy was posted by the Royal Household on job sites like LinkedIn this week and advertises for a "natural communicator" to maintain the "Queen's presence in the public eye and on the world stage."

The role has the title Digital Communications Officer, and the job requirements include creating content for Instagram, Twitter, and the royal family's website. The role also entails researching and writing articles and generally covering the Queen's engagements, like state visits and award ceremonies.

As far as job location goes, you couldn't really get more central London with the office being based in Buckingham Palace.

So, who would be a good fit for the role? The household says the ideal candidate would be educated to a degree level, have experience of managing a website and creating digital and social media content, be "innovative with creative flair" and have great writing and photography skills.

Would you apply for this job?

Yes—how do I apply?

I don't really think my skills are right for this plus I like my current job!

"A natural communicator with a genuine user focus, you're self-assured liaising effectively with a broad spectrum of people on a daily basis," the job posting reads, reminding us that this "broad spectrum" most likely includes the royal family.

We're also guessing those who work well under pressure will be a good fit because, as the post specifies, your "content will be viewed by millions."

The benefits aren't too shabby either, with 33 days annual leave and free lunch. The job is Monday to Friday. The seniority level is entry level.

Head to LinkedIn for more information if you're ready to apply.
