Prince William and Kate Middleton are looking for someone with great organization skills, according to their job listing on Daybook. Their new personal assistant will be in charge of scheduling for the family, inclusive of various “events and travel.” He or she will also arrange meetings, handle phone calls, and draft “letters and emails” on behalf of the couple. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge listed the qualifications for the position as well. “The successful candidate will have previous personal assistant and administrative experience, including managing busy diaries and drafting correspondence. Candidates will have impeccable IT skills and a proactive approach. Excellent [organization] and communication skills are essential, as is attention to detail and a willingness to undertake a wide variety of tasks. The ability to maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion at all times is essential,” the job description reads.
According to Tatler, William and Kate posted a similar job back in March. It’s unclear if they hired someone who didn’t work out for whatever reason or if they never found someone who was a good fit. The report indicates that William and Kate have a “solid track record with staff,” and often build long-term relationships with the people they hire. For this reason, the job of personal assistant is said to be “highly sought after.” Hopefully William and Kate find the perfect person for the role.
