Working for royalty

Working for the Royal household isn't all crimson uniforms, military parades and grand tours to foreign parts. There are many other types of job, including public relations, housekeeping, catering, horticulture, secretarial, art curatorship and human resources.

The attraction is that many of the jobs are unique to this environment (where else could you work as a liveried helper in this day and age?), or at least have aspects that you wouldn't come across anywhere else. As well as a 'reasonable' rate of pay and training opportunities, you can benefit from perks like meals, grace-and-favour accommodation and a free TV licence.

Jobs in Royal residences are usually advertised in the media: details of the latest vacancies are listed in the recruitment pages of The Monarchy Today.

Be aware that security procedures have been stepped up since undercover reporter Ryan Parry worked for two months as a footman with bogus references. So expect to be thoroughly vetted before you are allowed to take up employment.

Go for it – you might receive a gong in the honours list one day!

Greeting-card writer

You can do it all – romantic verse, splendid prose, droll punchlines. But is it possible to make a living as a greeting-card writer? Yes, if you are creative, hard working and determined to succeed. This is a freelance career and you can earn anything from 50p per line to £25 per verse or up to £150 for an idea with a humorous quip.

The best place to start is in your local card shop. This is the fun part. Browse through as many examples as possible, and jot down the contact details of the publishers who produce your preferred style of card. Next, phone or email your selected publishers, explaining briefly why your approach would appeal to card buyers. If your pitch is convincing, they will ask you to send some samples.


Have you ever thought that you could be the Number One Ladies' Detective? Or a Philippa Marlowe in shades, trench coat and bright-red lipstick? If you are sending verse or prose, type each set of lines clearly on a single page. Jokes are best sent as mock-ups of the finished items. Put your name, address and phone number on every page and enclose a brief covering letter, explaining why you think your ideas are the best thing since sliced bread. Keep copies of everything – you may have to wait a few weeks for a reply.

The Greeting Card Association lists companies who use freelance writers.

Private Investigator

Have you ever thought that you could be the Number One Ladies' Detective? Or a Philippa Marlowe in shades, trench coat and bright-red lipstick? It doesn't have to be a fantasy, because many people make a success of this profession. And they don't all live in Botswana or downtown LA.

Today the demand for private investigators is not so much for proving marital infidelity, finding missing persons or keeping innocent people out of jail. You are more likely to be asked to solve computer crime, track shoplifters or work as a security guard.

There are no formal requirements, although many private eyes are ex-police or army officers. To break into this line of work:


Develop your detective skills: you will need skills in observation, research, problem solving and communication. You will also need to be able to use the latest surveillance equipment and computer technology

Do a course: there are many suitable courses available, including some you can take online

Get some experience: you could work as a festival steward or a security officer. Or you could undertake undercover work in a department store. You might even ask a detective agency for unpaid work experience.


You can find employment with detective agencies, insurance companies, shopping malls or hotels. Or you can start up on your own. It's going to take all your powers of research, communication and persistence to land your first job. If you're a good sleuth, you'll find it in the end!

Circus Performer

Run away to the circus! Do you fancy trapeze, acrobatics, juggling, fire-eating, tightrope work or clowning? These days circus people appear on TV, in adverts and on the stage. They run circus-skills workshops, they are frequently used in the hospitality industry, and obviously in circuses themselves.

Be aware, however, that circus performing is more than a job: it's a whole way of life. You spend a lot of time travelling, and you live in constant chummy proximity to other artistes and crew members.

There are no formal entry requirements – your ability will be assessed at audition. Nowadays you don't have to be born in the circus, and there are many opportunities for outsiders to gain professional training and job opportunities.

You can gain skills at weekend and summer schools, or you can undertake a full-time course. One option is to contact The Academy Of Circus Arts, which is an integral part of Zippos Circus, www.zippo.dial.pipex.com, currently the only touring circus school in the UK. Alternatively, you could train at one of the established circus schools:


The Circus Space

Circomedia

Skylight Circus Arts

It's a high-flying career for creative, physical people who enjoy the showbiz buzz.

Shark Keeper

Many of us are terrified and awestruck by sharks, which are some of the most spectacular marine animals. Divers long to catch a glimpse of their mysterious shapes in the open sea, and the public flocks to observe them in aquaria. Don't be put off by Jaws-style scare stories, because most of these 'lords of the ocean' are harmless to human beings. In fact, more people are injured each year by bees, snakes, crocodiles or tigers than by sharks.

Looking after sharks in aquaria is a satisfying career. As a shark keeper you would help educate the general public about these animals and the threats to their survival. You would also contribute to research into this fascinating species.

The competition for posts is enormous, so you need to make sure that your application stands out from the crowd. Your best long-term strategy is to obtain an appropriate academic qualification in marine ecology or zoology. You could consider distance learning if you are a mature student.

Reconsidering unpopular jobs

Careers for livewires

Match your personality to a career

It is a good idea to gain some experience as a volunteer in a public aquarium or helping with research. Make yourself an expert by reading books and journals, attending conferences and joining web discussion groups. Aim to develop a good understanding, not only of sharks themselves, but also of relevant fisheries and policy issues.

If this career is your kettle of fish, you can find out more from The Shark Trust.

Five Unusual Jobs Working With Food and Drink

Candace Corner, CareerBuilder.com writer
Posted: 2006-09-21 15:41:56
So you'd like to work in the food and drink industry, but you want something beyond the typical server, busser and chef positions. Here are some people who are working in interesting ways to market, create, manage and serve in the industry:
1. Taste Tester
As the test kitchen director for Mr. Food and Mr. Food no-fuss Meals Assembly Stores, Patty Rosenthal oversees a small staff of culinary experts who work together to create 15 recipes a day for Mr. Food, a company and television program that runs on over 150 television stations around the world and has published more than 40 cookbooks.
Although the job never leaves Rosenthal hungry, some of it can be a little hard to swallow. "When we did 'The Chocolate Cookbook,' testing at 9 a.m., it was a lot to take in," Rosenthal said. You're testing chocolate all day.
While culinary training is a plus, Rosenthal says she went to school for criminal justice before following her passion for food. "Although (training) can be helpful, we don't look for culinary degrees, but you need to have a love for food and understand the philosophy behind the company," she said.
Salary: The median salary is $40,000.*
2. Server on Skates
Lindsay Kent has spent the last two summers serving at the Redline Drive-In Restaurant, a 1950s themed business in Mayville, N.Y.
The servers don't wear protective gear, but they do have health insurance and they don't have to worry if they're a little wobbly on their wheels. "It's not a requirement to skate while waitressing," Kent said. "If you're working long hours it can get pretty difficult, and there are a few girls who don't skate at all."
Salary: The median annual salary is $25,000.*
3. Rover
Imagine it's your job to travel all over the United States meeting all different kinds of people and going to all the major snowboarding competitions.
If you're Jacob Levine, this is reality. The former professional snowboarder was selected out of 1800 applicants to be the designated rover for Snickers candy and Burton, a company specializing in snowboarding equipment. His job is to create brand awareness, which means meeting millions of people and passing out samples. "In a typical day I can go to a venue, interact with the public, skate, get a feel for the atmosphere, and talk to people about what they think about Snickers."
And the perks? Levine's company-sponsored H3 Hummer has become his home. He also gets a full wardrobe and skating equipment from Burton, a laptop from Hewlett Packard, and a digital camera and video camera from Panasonic.
Salary: While there is modest compensation and an allotted travel budget, the big pay is the perks and all expenses are paid.*
4. Master Roaster
As the Master Roaster for Millstone Coffee, Rich Bertagna consumes at least several pots of coffee a day. Blends include regular, decaf and gourmet varieties and Bertagna tastes it all to judge what blends work best. "It's like wine," Bertagna said. "You want coffee that goes with your food -- complementing, but not overwhelming."
Bertagna started out in paper product development in 1969 before moving into coffee in 1982. Building up to the "graduate level" as a coffee expert takes around five to 10 years, and he says the advancement comes when you can recommend new blends after years of blending, roasting, grinding and drinking different types of java. The title of master roaster is coveted, and Bertagna speculates that most companies probably only have one.
Salary: The median annual salary for a coffee roaster is $31,000, but Bertagna reported that for this type of work, experts can earn between $50,000 and $250,000.*
5. Chocolatier
Jared Pierson knows a thing or two about chocolate. In addition to co-owning Imatra chocolate, Pierson works under a division of his company called "The Chocolate Guy -- San Diego," a company that offers chocolate and cheese fountain rentals among other chocolate related products for sale online. Pierson's business has attracted high-profile clientele such as Shaquille O'Neal, John Travolta, the mayor of San Diego and the NFL.
"Most of our events are done with hotels and catering companies that rent our equipment, but we also do private events," Pierson said. "The majority of business is on the weekends. A typical Friday, Saturday and Sunday include about eight events per day."
Pierson did not have to attend culinary school to create his successful business, but he said that his mother is well-versed in working with chocolate and has experience in catering. "I didn't go to school and learn about chocolate; it's all about experience and learning it on my own," Pierson said.
Salary: As his own boss, Pierson's salary is his decision, but he said his company grossed $350,000 last year.*
