Want to work for the QUEEN? Buckingham Palace issues RARE job vacancy
THE Queen is advertising a rare royal job vacancy for a travelling chef who can cook in all her homes.
The job is based at Buckingham Palace - though the sous chef will be asked to follow the Monarch to other Royal residences, such as Balmoral and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
"Joining an accomplished team, you'll work hands-on with your colleagues to deliver food to the highest standards," says the advert on the Royal website.
"You'll plan and develop menu items for a wide range of events, as well as helping to manage stock levels.
"Alongside the Head Chef you'll lead and motivate the kitchen team, playing an integral part in the day-to-day running of our operations.
"In an environment where development and training is commonplace, you'll be supported to grow within your role, developing both your managerial and technical cookery skills.
"And whether you're based in Buckingham Palace or travelling to other locations, you'll look forward to whatever challenge comes your way." The applicant should be "an experienced and qualified chef with a background in premier catering, looking to take on a new challenge.
"You'll have a thorough knowledge of the food industry and are trained in classical French cuisine, and you'll be confident planning and developing menus for a wide range of occasions, including volume catering.
"Strong leadership skills will be absolutely vital. It's essential that you can plan, organise and delegate effectively, and also that you can motivate and develop those around you.
"With excellent communication skills, you'll have the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with your colleagues around the organisation.
"It's also important that you can follow up-to-date catering legislative requirements.
"Above all, you'll be committed to achieving high standards every day, making you a real asset to the Kitchen team.
"This role will be based in London, and will involve travelling to other Royal residences.
“In return you can look forward to working in a unique and stimulating work environment, and 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) and meals on duty.
“The role also offers the option to live-in with all meals provided (for which there is a salary adjustment).
“Training and development is encouraged and you will have access to a range of recreational facilities."
The closing date for applications is October 12.

This is such a slap in the face; all that work, high standards that have to be met, and chances are it'll be a pittance and a lot of instability. Traveling to and from each place and I am sure that any chef worth their title will prefer to work at a place that in fact will actually pay well and will treat the chef with genuine respect. How extravagant to have a traveling chef in one's entourage and I am certain that this is illogical. I do not think I would want to do this. The BRF are not generous people.

There's no shortage of people applying for positions with the BRF, ever. They won't have any trouble filling that spot, IMO. It looks very good in one's CV when eventually moving on. There is also live-in accommodation, and I don't think moving to Sandringham and Balmoral for a few weeks every year makes for instability. I've read that the staff enjoy a friendly atmosphere, and as there are so many of them it would probably be like a large family at times.

The row that drove the Queen to sleep in the servants' quarters: Fiery argument between two of her dressers saw Her Majesty flee downstairs in just her nightie to kip on the sofa

    Peggy Hoath, an aide to the Queen, remained by the monarch's side for 35 years
    Royal sources revealed Miss Hoath had a 'friendly rivalry' with another dresser
    Peggy died in December, and as former colleagues gathered to say goodbye one servant revealed a story which has been legendary in royal circles for years

Prince Andrew and Princess Anne make big changes to their teams

Prince Andrew and Princess Anne have welcomed new members of staff to their teams. According to the Court Circular, the Duke of York has hired a new equerry, which in royal terms is a personal assistant. Andrew has appointed Lieutenant Commander Alex Davies RN to take over Captain Edward Monckton when the latter completes his tour of duty.

Princess Anne, meanwhile, has also hired a new private secretary, Mr. Charles Davies. Mr. Davies started his role at the beginning of the month, taking over from Captain Sir Nicholas Wright RN, who will remain an extra equerry to the Princess Royal. While Andrew's office is still based at Buckingham Palace, Anne's team has now moved to St James' Palace, having relocated from Buckingham Palace for renovations.
