The Queen advertises pot washer to do the dishes at Buckingham Palace

The Queen  has recently  for a pot washer to work at Buckingham Palace on a salary of £17,000 - with no experience necessary.

The kitchen porter will live within the grounds and will also be expected to travel to other royal households such as Balmoral and Windsor Castle when needed.

All meals are provided and the job also comes with 33 days holiday a year and a generous 15 per cent pension contribution - three times the average in the UK.

It also says that experience is 'not essential' as all the relevant training will be provided.

However, the applicant will have to pass the extensive vetting process that anyone who works with the Royal Family must undergo.

In the advert, posted on the Royal Household website, the employer opens by asking if the applicant gets satisfaction from delivering a 'spotless service'.
