Got the royal touch? Queen Elizabeth needs a decorator for Buckingham Palace

Do you an eye for design — fit for the queen?

The royal household is looking to hire a curtain maker and soft furnishing upholsterer for Buckingham Palace and other properties. For an annual salary of 22,000 pounds (about $27,485), you could help decorate the queen of England's quarters and be part of her royal staff.

From tailoring furniture covers, to creating new curtains to scale the heights of state rooms, you'll consistently aim for the highest standards," according to the job description.

The royal household is quick to warn any potential applicants that this is not an easy job.
