The Queen is looking for a web editor to manage her main website.

The £30,000 job is currently being advertised on the Royal Household’s website (http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page5532.asp).

The job ad says the site has 250,000 global visitors viewing 1.5 million pages per week.

Based in the busy and high-profile press office at Buckingham Palace, the web editor will be “responsible for the maintenance and strategic development of the royal website, ensuring a compelling, effective and appropriate online presence for the British monarchy”, said the ad.

Those applying need to be of graduate calibre, with previous experience working on a high-profile website in the public or media sectors.

They also need to be a first-class writer, able to develop imaginative and creative copy, have strong project management skills and be able to work effectively within a team and to strict budgetary constraints.

Expertise in Adobe Photoshop, Content Management Systems, HTML and statistical packages is a prerequisite, in addition to an awareness of emerging digital technologies and the current online environment.

Knowledge of WC3 and government web standards would be an advantage.

Not a bad return for £30,000 a year, if the right candidate can be found.

The Daily Mirror reports the Queen is also looking for an £80,000 IT director, but that job currently is not advertised on the site.
