You Can Now Travel With The Queen For A Living And Get Paid £85,000

Dream job alert: The Queen is currently hiring someone to travel the world with her, and is paying the lucky candidate up to £85,000 to do so.

The enviable gig (full title: Director of Travel for the Royal Household) involves booking all travel for the royal household, and - the best part - travelling across the UK and overseas themselves too.

If you land the new role, you will also need to oversee the operations of the Queen's Helicopter Flight, scheduled train services and the Royal Train for the whole of the royal family, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Cambridges (otherwise known as Kate, Wills, Harry and Meghan).

Of course, you'll also need to take security, safety and environmental considerations into account so that Her Majesty gets there safe and sound (and avoids any royal scandals along the way).

The hours are also flexible (win win), and the best part? You'll get a £85,000 salary per year if you fit the bill, although you may be expected to do some 'on-call' work too.
