London, UK (CNN) – The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, gets his first corporate job, as Silicon Valley startup Peter Up announced on Tuesday that he was hiring the chief impact officer.
Peter Up provides training and mental health services to clients. The company’s website mentions Harry as part of its leadership team, describing him as a “humanitarian, military, mental health advocate, and environmental expert”.
Harry joined the company weeks after he interviewed his wife Megan, with Oprah Winfrey, detailing their decision to leave the UK and step back from the top positions in the British royal family. The Californian couple also touched on the stress that royal life is placing on their mental health.
The Wall Street Journal was the first to report Harry joining the startup.
In Better Up, Harry is expected to have input into product strategy decisions and charitable contributions, and to speak publicly on mental health issues, the newspaper reported. The newspaper said that “Peter Up” declined to comment on how much Harry would be paid.
The company’s chief executive, Alexei Rubicho, told the Wall Street Journal that the position was “important and creamy.”
The prince elaborates on his reasons for joining Peter Up in a post on the company’s blog, saying that he understands the “shared passion” for Robicho to help people.
Harry said, “What caught my attention about Peter Up is that the company’s mission to unleash the potential of people everywhere requires innovation, influence and integrity. Their team has been doing this for years.”
Harry also said that he personally benefited from the training provided by Better Up.
The Prince has taken on another big assignment since leaving the UK. Spotify has an exclusive partnership with Archwell Audio, a production company founded by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
