The monarch is looking for a new employee to take care of the park around Windsor Castle. However, the payment is rather meager.
According to a job advertisement on the Royal Household website, the Queen is looking for a new gardener.
Knowledge as a gardener and a driver's license are required as minimum qualifications. What is also required is a “passion for lawn care”.
However, the salary is not particularly regal: The new employee should only earn around 2000 francs a month.
Queen Elizabeth II (95) is looking for a new gardener for the park around Windsor Castle.
The payment offered amounts to around 2000 francs per month.
Not exactly high – but the chance of meeting the monarch in person is all the higher.
The British Queen Queen Elizabeth II (95th) is looking for a new gardener for the park around Windsor Castle. That comes from a job advertisement on the website of the Royal Household. It is a matter of looking after gardens “that thousands will admire”, it says in the job description, in which knowledge as a gardener and a driver's license are required as minimum qualifications. What is also required is a “passion for lawn care”. The application deadline is January 5, 2022.
However, the prospect of payment is anything but royal: Just 19,500 pounds (around 24,000 francs) is promised as gross annual salary upon entry . This in a city where even a one-room apartment often costs up to around 1200 pounds (1500 francs) a month, plus ancillary costs.
At least the chance of meeting the British monarch in real life should be be bigger in hardly any other place. The Queen has been primarily in Windsor since the pandemic began.
