(Gray News) - If you’ve always wished you could rub elbows with royals and post about it online, here’s your chance.

Queen Elizabeth is hiring a social media manager.

While the job offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience, it’s not the most stress-free career choice. The job listing makes it clear that your posts would be seen by millions of people around the world. No pressure.

What would it pay to work for the royal family? This position pays an annual salary of about £30,000, which equals a little more than $38,000, depending on your experience.

You’ll also get 33 days off every year, including bank holidays, free lunch and additional training. Not to mention, you'll have Buckingham Palace as a previous employer on your resume.

The queen’s digital communications manager will be responsible for finding new ways to increase her presence online. That would include managing articles on the royal family's website and posting to social media.

Qualifications for this position include a degree and previous experience managing digital products, preferably also in a high-profile environment.

You’ll also need some pretty good photography skills as the queen just started posting to Instagram in March and video skills are a plus.

If this sounds like your dream job, you can apply here.

The search closes May 26.

Today, The Queen has released a message ahead of Commonwealth Day on Monday. "Commonwealth Day has a special significance this year as we mark the 70th anniversary of the London Declaration, when nations of the Commonwealth agreed to move forward together as free and equal members. The vision and sense of connection that inspired the signatories has stood the test of time, and the Commonwealth continues to grow, adapting to address contemporary needs. "Today, many millions of people around the world are drawn together because of the collective values shared by the Commonwealth. In April last year, I welcomed the leaders of our 53 nations to Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and we all witnessed how the Commonwealth vision offers hope, and inspires us to find ways of protecting our planet, and our people. "We are able to look to the future with greater confidence and optimism as a result of the links that we share, and thanks to the networks of cooperation and mutual support to which we contribute, and on which we draw. With enduring commitment through times of great change, successive generations have demonstrated that whilst the goodwill for which the Commonwealth is renowned may be intangible, its impact is very real. "We experience this as people of all backgrounds continue to find new ways of expressing through action the value of belonging in a connected Commonwealth. I hope and trust that many more will commit to doing so this Commonwealth Day." �� PA Images #commonwealth
