Buckingham Palace is hiring a new interior decorator
Are you good with a needle and thread? Are you well-versed in the art of furniture preservation? Then dust off your resume, because Buckingham Palace is hiring a new interior decorator, and the job could be yours.
The Royal Household posted the job opening online this week, and is seeking a “curtain maker and soft furnishing upholsterer” to deliver projects at Buckingham Palace — Queen Elizabeth’s residence — Windsor Castle, and St. James’s Palace, where Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall live.
According to the posting, “The range of projects will stretch you.” Stretch you, you guys. The posting continues, “And knowing that you’re conserving and creating magnificent items that will be enjoyed by future generations will give you the greatest sense of reward.” Ah, that elusive work-related reward!
