Renting or buying a property in London is currently virtually impossible. Sometimes, however, housing is included in a job and this rare vacancy even involves living space in Buckingham Palace.

Queen Elizabeth II is currently looking for a new householder (palace holder?) And the position includes the option to live in Buckingham Palace. The Queen divides her time between Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and in the summer Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The 19 decadent state rooms are open to visitors when Her Majesty is on vacation from mid-July to September.

The Royal Household website describes the function as "providing exceptional service in an incredible environment" and states that the work also includes "traveling to other royal residences". Previous household experience is a plus, but not a requirement, because the position offers the employee the opportunity to "grow his skills". You can still apply until 15 September and the interviews will take place on 2 October.
