TOBY MELVILLE/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) — The queen of England is looking for a new sous chef for Buckingham Palace. In an ad posted on the Royal Household’s job site, the chef is required to have a catering certification and work 45 hours a week for $36,000 a year.

The royal salary range is low according to Indeed.com, which places the average sous chef salary in the U.S. at $47,000.

Accommodations are offered for the royal chef job, but the candidate “must be willing to spend approximately three months of the year away from London working at other UK residences.”

“From state banquets for 200 to lunches for two; and from canapé receptions for 800 to staff restaurant meals; our chefs prepare it all to the same exceptional standards,” the ad reads.

In addition to traveling and preparing meals, the chef would also be required to train junior chefs and be in charge when working in smaller locations.

The candidate must have menu planning experience, organizational skills, a “pro-active attitude” and a passion for food.

Applications are due by May 10.
