Buckingham Palace is looking for a Personnel Security Advisor to work in the Security Liaison of Queen Elizabeth's London residence — and they're willing to pay a good amount of money.
The job would begin in October of 2021 and end in October of 2022 and pay "circa £25,000, (about $34,000 USD) dependent on experience."
The applicant would work 37.5 hours per week over five days, Monday to Friday.
According to the job description, "the Personnel Security team manage[s] the security vetting procedures for everyone working in the Royal residences. As part of a dedicated team, you'll undertake verification checks that meet the diverse needs of our organisation, creating a safe and secure environment for all. You'll conduct security clearances for employees, visitors and contractors. You'll also carry out pre-employment checks, working collaboratively with your team to deliver an exceptional personnel security verification service."
The description continues: "You'll be responsible for your own portfolio of work, and will regularly liaise with internal colleagues and external bodies. Keeping all our records up-to-date will be an important part of your role too. As well as the day-to-day, you'll help the wider team at events and with a range of projects. It's a fast paced environment, and you'll make important decisions every day. But whether you're processing clearance for an individual contractor, or supporting a large scale recruitment campaign, you'll always deliver with faultless accuracy. The standards you aim for will be the biggest challenge, and the biggest reward. And every day you'll deliver vital work that has an impact across the Royal Household."
In order to be considered, you "already have some experience in a security vetting capacity or environment and be familiar with handling sensitive data," the website reads. "To excel, you'll need to be naturally tenacious and enquiring, with a detail orientated and accurate approach to your work. The ability to remain calm and level headed under pressure, think on your feet, and demonstrate good judgment and sound decision making in a fast paced environment will also be vital."
It's important for the applicant to have organizational skills and IT competence, in addition to being a strong communicator.
