Queen Elizabeth II is in need of some social media help.

The British Monarchy is seeking someone with “experience of managing and editing high profile websites, social media and other digital formats,” to fill the role of Head of Digital Engagement.

The successful applicant will be part of the team working to develop Her Majesty’s digital footprint, “finding new ways to maintain The Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage”.

The job, which pays over $NZD92,000, is located at Buckingham Palace and the successful applicant can expect to work 37.5 hours a week.

The Head of Digital Engagement will be covering royal events, awards ceremonies and state visits.


The Queen began her Twitter career in October 2014. Her first tweet was sent from the London Science Museum, and read: “It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.”

The @BritishMonarchy account has only 2.16 million followers. Considering there are approximately 64 million people in the United Kingdom, it’s clear to see why they’re keen to extend their reach.
