Prince Charles is on the hunt for someone to run his Twitter account, and has posted a public advert on journalist resources website Gorkana.

The job ad, which closes 7 February, says that Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker-Bowles are looking to hire a digital engagement officer to maintain Prince Charles' website and "support Clarence House's communications strategy".

No salary is specified on the advert, although the lucky winner of the job will be based in Clarence House, London, near St James' Park. With a bit of luck, Charles and Camilla might even chuck in a few Duchy Originals biscuits gratis.


The advert specifies that applicants must have proven journalism and online communications experience, as well as a "calm, diplomatic manner".
