The Royal Household is advertising a senior gardener post on a 39-hour week earning £17,000. This, however, is the second time the post has gone on to its website.
In October the post was advertised on a salary of £15,750, according an Evening Standard report headlined "Fussy gardeners shun the Queen".
The one-year fixed-term contract starting in March involves work at Buckingham Palace and St James’s Palace, cutting grass, clipping shrubs and planting trees.
Three "mandatory requirements" are a NVQ 2 or equivalent in horticulture, plenty of experience and a clean UK driving licence. Application closing date is 30 December.
"The job holder is expected to resolve day-to-day problems that arise but has no policy-making authority," said a spokesman for the household.
According to the Standard: "Tending the royal lawns may seem a dream job for a gardener – especially with accommodation in central London thrown in."
