Britain's Queen Elizabeth is looking for a housekeeping assistant.
The monarch is advertising for a member of staff for her Windsor Castle residence, with the post paying just Â£14,000 a year.
Advertised on the Buckingham Palace website, the duties of the role are stated as: 'The cleaning, presentation and upkeep of all rooms and suites including lifts, staircases and corridors. The upkeep of carpeting and hard floor surfaces, fixtures and fittings, general furnishings and antique Âfurnishings, upholstery, curtains, objects d'art, photo and picture frames, mirrors, internal glass, and silver and brass items.
'The cleaning, upkeep and presentation of bathrooms, Âwashrooms, toilets, showers and cloakroom areas.'
As well as cleaning duties, the successful candidate will also be 'required to pack and unpack for guests, run their baths, arrange the service of tea and breakfast and assist with dressing'.
There is an option of accommodation, but this comes with a 'salary adjustment'.
The Queen usually spends her weekends at Windsor and lives there for a month during Easter.
