Serving lavish cuisine on fine china to the most famous ruling family in the world? No pressure.

Talk about a resume booster: The British monarchy is looking for the next great royal chef to join their team of employees. Duke Charles of Wales and Duchess Camilla of Cornwall are looking for a royal sous chef. The job opening is listed on the official Royal Vacancies website — as spotted by The Daily Mail — and calls for a full-time chef to attend to the culinary needs of the British heir apparent and his wife.

The sous chef is responsible for the “supervision, preparation and service of food to the highest standards from private dining and staff meals, to receptions and events,” and will work in royal residencies across the U.K. They will also need to have a “working knowledge of organic food.” (A notable supporter of environmental causes, Prince Charles has often criticized global warming and GMOs.)

The lucky hire might find him or herself making the Queen’s famous chocolate biscuit cake, which she refuses to travel without, or preparing her morning cornflakes at Buckingham Palace. But be prepared: Prince Charles is an extraordinarily picky eater and will only eat specially made muesli with one of six different types of honey and milk specifically from the Windsor Dairy for breakfast.

Get those applications in: The deadline is May 26.
