Good news if you’re in the market for a new job – Buckingham Palace is hiring a new royal chef. And the employee benefits are out of this world.

The position of Demi Chef de Partie is up on the royal family’s website and outlines all of the various perks that come with the job. So if you’re a master of tea cakes and Christmas puddings, you might want to listen up.

The job pays about $27,480 per year (or 22,076.04 pounds). You’ll get a 15% employee contribution to your retirement plan, and all meals while on-duty will be free. One of the best parts? There are 33 paid holidays you can take.

It’s unclear if the person for the job will be cooking for the Queen herself, but the job description asks that candidates “prepare diverse menus for a wide range of events.”

Okay, now for the actual best part of the job – the hire will have the option of live-inaccommodations as well as access to recreational facilities, all at Buckingham Palace.

But if you like your paychecks a little healthier, it’s recommended that you find your own living setup, because those who choose the live-in option will get a docked pay.

Applications are being accepted through July 28th, so get your resumes ready!
