Full-time chef for private household in London
Private Family

A private household of four (mother, father, two-year-old son and nanny) in Holland Park, London is seeking a talented full-time, live-out Chef.

The focus of this role is cooking a diverse range of delicious European/Mediterranean-inspired meals for the family.

Responsibilities will include meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, inventory checks and keeping the kitchen clean and tidy. The role may also include running errands and general tasks that contribute to the overall maintenance and immaculate presentation of the family home. Candidates should also be willing to assist with housekeeping and laundry tasks when needed.

It is essential that the candidate is happy to travel with the family for at least 90 days of the year, primarily to Greece or Switzerland. An EU passport (as well as the right to work in the UK) is therefore a job requirement. The first overseas stint will be ten days in Switzerland in January 2024.

Candidates must enjoy working in a private household setting and be able to interact positively and discreetly with all family members. 

The ideal candidate will be energetic and excited about this opportunity to travel and develop their career; they will be committed to a long-term role, with minimal personal commitments and they will possess a humble, sunny demeanour and take a proactive, flexible approach to their work. 

Core working hours are: 

  • When the family is in residence: Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm and evening/weekend work which will be compensated with time off in lieu.
  • When the family is not in residence: Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

The start date is asap but there is flexibility for the right candidate. 

The position offers a very competitive salary, commensurate with experience.
