Queen Elizabeth is Looking For a New Chauffeur

Feb 26, 2015 11:00 AM EST | Matt Mercuro


Have you ever wanted to be Queen Elizabeth II's chauffeur? Well here's your chance.

A listing on the official website of the British Monarchy says that there is a permanent job opening at Buckingham Palace for a chauffeur that will be a "part of a busy and supportive team tasked with driving members of the Royal Family, Household officials, guests and official visitors."

This means you'll be around some of the most distinguished people in the world and have access to vehicles most people will never get near like the Bentley State Limousine, which was designed and crafted in Crewe specifically for use by Her Majesty and members of the royal family.

The Royal Mews supplies all coaches and vehicles for State and official occasions and is the department responsible for caring for and training the Queen's horses, maintaining the coaches and keeping all vehicles in working condition.

It will also be your job to maintain and keep vehicles presentable while assisting with the daily administration and management of the Royal Mews Garage.

Just because you'll be working for one of the wealthiest families in the world doesn't mean you'll be making a lot of money however. The job pays about $35,000 per year, which includes meals but not the mandatory lodging, the cost of which is taken from the aforementioned salary. 

Though the pay isn't exciting, it is a government job, which means if you're hired you'll receive full benefits like 33 holidays and a 15 percent employer contribution pension scheme, according to the listing.

If this sounds like a good deal and you have a full UK driving license and professional driving experience then feel free to apply here.
