LONDON: Buckingham Palace was advertising yesterday for a new housekeeping assistant, whose duties include running the royal baths and arranging the tea trays.

The successful applicant for the 14 400 (R265 000)-a-year post will be responsible for "high-quality cleaning, presentation and guest care" at Queen Elizabeth's official London residence.

Duties include "arranging dry-cleaning, care of jewellery, running baths, assisting with dressing and arranging the service of tea and breakfast trays".

The advert on the royal household's web page says the new employee ... must be able to "maintain confidentiality".

Applicants for the 40-hour-a-week job should be "meticulous, with a close attention to detail", and willing to work away from London at times. - Sapa-AFP
