If you’re looking for an internship that involves a lot more than getting coffee and making copies, then the British Royal family is looking for you.

According to a new job posting on the royal family’s website, the Windsors are in need of a Conservation Intern specializing in decorative arts and ceramics.

“As part of our team at Marlborough House Workshops, you’ll gain practical experience in a wide range of conservation activities for our collection of ceramics and decorative art,” the listing reads.

The intern will get to work with “breathtaking” works of art from the unique collection, which is housed inside what use to be a royal residence. However, the last royal to actually use the Marlborough House was Queen Mary, who lived there until her death in 1953.

“You’ll learn various traditional techniques, covering assembling, filling, retouching and preparation. You’ll also assist with drafting reports and determine your own treatment options for ceramics and decorative surfaces,” the listing adds.

“Above all, you’re eager to immerse yourself in the unique learning opportunities that the collection presents.”

So who is the right person for this job? Someone with a “keen” interest in conservation and an interest in the Royal Collection itself.
