Our client, a family with 3 children under the age of 10, are seeking to hire a couple for their property in Geneva, Switzerland. This is a 5.5 day working week
You will need to have strong English language skills and due to the location, French language skills are highly desirable (but not essential). Additional languages (Spanish / Italian) are a plus but not essential.
The family enjoy positive, happy and loyal staff and due to their busy and changeable schedules, you will need to be very flexible with a changing work plan. The client is a traditional family, down to earth, and although this is a more formal environment where boundaries and professionalism are essential, the family are very nice and enjoy a give/take relationship.
Your duties combined will include:
Housekeeping – Excellent cleaning skills are essential and the family hold high standards around cleanliness and keeping things tidy
Driving (you will need experience of driving large luxury vehicles)
Handyperson / Maintenance work
General maintenance Gardening skills (Green fingers not essential, just mowing and maintenance work)
Light cooking skills are helpful but not essential as the family love to cook for themselves. You may be required to prepare healthy meals for the children on occasion
Generally child friendly – you’ll need to be happy to chase around after the children and to interact positively with them
The family enjoy skiing and you may drive them up to the mountains. There is the possibility you would stay and work for them there during some winter periods.
Your accommodation is a private area on the lower ground floor of the main property with its own separate private entrance. It’s a nice spacious open studio set up.
