8 surprise Newcastle jobs paying more than the Queen’s new Buckingham Palace housekeeper gig
A new job at Buckingham Palace has been posted, but the low wage has turned heads
To land a job working for the Queen at her glamorous residence in Buckingham Palace, you'd think your bank accounts would enjoy an uplift - in reality, you might be better off with a part time gig in Newcastle.
An attractive new opportunity hit the job market earlier this month as Queen Elizabeth looks to fill a role at her London palace.
The Housekeeping Assistant job at Buckingham Palace has hit job sites in recent weeks.
The ad specifies that previous housekeeping experience is preferable, the applicant should take pride in their work and must perform well in a team.
What's more, the job offers the opportunity for the candidate to live-in the premises, taking up residence in the grand locations fit for royalty!
However, there is a surprising catch.
The job offers a meagre salary of just £19,909.00 a year or £7.97 an hour.
Even with no experience necessary, it's a lowly London salary that has turned heads in the run-up to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
Any Geordies thinking of applying to work next to royalty may want to think twice.
