The Queen is hiring! Palace job to do one very special thing pays $34,000

Her Majesty requests your resume.

The Queen knows that a thank you card can go a long way but with so many to write (can you imagine!) Her Majesty needs a little help.
A new job ad for The British Monarchy is hoping to find the candidate to help send “congratulations that are never forgotten.”
According to the description on the royal website the new role will be in ‘The Anniversaries Team’ which “helps to produce congratulatory messages that provide a vital link between The Queen and the public”. The ideal candidate will help pen and post messages ‘that mean so much to so many people’ on behalf of the palace.
And the person who fills the role will have the perk of working at Buckingham Palace but, HRH sends out thousands of birthday and wedding anniversary cards each year, so they they’ll have their work cut out.
The Queen’s cards are sent to those celebrating their 100th and 105th birthday and every year thereafter, and to those celebrating their diamond wedding (60th), 65th, 70th wedding anniversaries and every year thereafter.
The Queen's congratulatory messages consist of a card containing a personalised message and come in a special envelope.
The applicant will be expected to work 37.5 hours a week and be paid a base salary of roughly $33,700 a year with benefits. Applications close in late October and while it might be a high-pressure gig this may be your opportunity to see your Downton Abbey dream come to life.
