If you've ever wanted to run Queen Elizabeth's Twitter account for a year, now's your chance.

Buckingham Palace has opened the digital communications officer position for a fixed term, March 2017 to February 2018, working a mere 37.5 hours a week and getting a salary of £30,000 (NZ$52,000).

But it's not going to be as simple as running your own personal Twitter.

"It's finding new ways to maintain The Queen's presence in the public eye and on the world stage. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional," the palace says.

As part of that there's a pretty heft list of requirements you have to fulfil.

It includes being "educated to a degree level", with previous experience in the area, and be able to "motivate and develop others".

As well as managing the Queen's Twitter, the successful applicant will also be managing the Buckingham Palace website.

"This is your opportunity to use your digital expertise to deliver the exceptional," the palace says.

Time's about to run out - the vacancy closes on Tuesday (local time).
