If your dream job would be to work for the Duchess of Cambridge, then you're in luck as Kate's team are currently hiring a personal assistant.

  • The Household of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge advertised the role on LinkedIn this week.
  • The advert says they're looking for someone who 'can exercise tact and discretion.'
  • This follows royal news that the Cambridge children are being prepared for future royal duties.

According to the job advert posted on LinkedIn, Kate's team are on the hunt for a personal assistant to the assistant private secretary to the Duchess.

The advert, which was posted earlier this week, has received almost 700 applicants already. 

In a description of the administrative role, it says, “This is an exciting opportunity to join our PA team in support of the assistant private secretary to HRH The Duchess of Cambridge (APS).

“This role will provide wide-ranging administrative and operational support to the assistant private secretary.”

Responsibilities would include managing and controlling the APS’s diary, supporting the Events & Visits team and arranging meetings.

The advert says that the candidate must have previous secretarial and administrative experience, “excellent” IT, organisational and communication skills, and they should also have an “interest in TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s work and activities”.

But perhaps most importantly, they must have the "ability to exercise tact and discretion and maintain confidentiality at all times."

This comes after Kate opened up about a "lonely and overwhelming time" to mark Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week.

The Duchess spoke about how many mothers feel “lonely and overwhelmed” during children's early years as she highlighted “vital work” to help stop people “suffering in silence."

She said, "The birth of a child is one of life’s greatest gifts. But it can also be one of the most challenging times for many families and one that should not be faced alone."

Kate added, “But we all know that pregnancy, childbirth, and the first months and years of a child’s life can be hugely demanding. Parents often feel lonely and overwhelmed by these early years. Around 20% of women in the UK are reported to experience perinatal mental illness. Sadly, we also know that many more are suffering in silence."

As a result, she affirmed, it’s “crucial” that everyone who might be struggling has access to the “right support at the right time”.
