That’s right: Buckingham Palace is looking for a new “director of royal travel” to help plan, negotiate and facilitate travel for “members of the royal family and their households,” according to a recent job listing posted to the palace’s official site.

“As Director of Royal Travel, you will have overall responsibility for organizing air travel and overseeing the operations of The Queen’s Helicopter Flight and usage of scheduled train services and the Royal Train,” the listing reads. “You will also liaise with the relevant authorities to provide advice and recommendations on travel, taking into account security, safety and environmental considerations.”

The listing adds that the director of royal travel will be overseeing a “small team” at the Royal Travel offices, which is also in charge of the queen’s “helicopter flight” out of the Royal Air Force station south of Odiham, England.

At times, the director of royal travel will also need “provide soundly based advice” on travel matters, per the posting.
