Queen ends hunt for an IT director

But new web editor post opens up

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

The Queen has ended her search for an IT director, with applications for the post closing on Monday, and the advert already removed from her website.

However, the head of the British Monarchy is still looking for a web editor to tart up her website - www.royal.gov.uk - which claims 1.5m page views a week.

The job pays £30,000 a year. The successful candidate will be responsible for: "Ensuring a compelling, effective and appropriate online presence for the British Monarchy."

The ad asks for: "Expertise in Photoshop, Content Management Systems, HTML, and statistical packages is a prerequisite. Knowledge of WC3 and Government web standards would be an advantage."

In exchange you'll get 15 per cent employer contribution to a pension scheme, "generous paid leave entitlement, an excellent staff restaurant and a supportive team atmosphere."
