Live in Housekeeper / Cook job in Vienna


A lovely down to earth family in Vienna are looking for a switched on Housekeeper/Cook to help them out.


They live Monday-Friday in their main residence in Vienna in a 3 bedroom apartment and travel on weekends to their country residence (1 hour away). They already employ a fulltime Nanny to help take care of the children plus an au pair who baby sits. You will not be required to help out with the children but must of course be child friendly. At the family’s country residence they already employ a fulltime Housekeeper who has been with them for 6 years who takes care of the property throughout the week. You must be happy when required to travel to this property.


The couple’s children are aged 4, 3 and twins who are 1. Mum is at home and very hands on alongside the nanny and au pair (the children are all at nursery until lunchtime weekdays). Mum does breakfast and all the bed linen is sent out externally twice a week. You must be happy to organise this and any dry cleaning.


Your role will be to oversee the running of all the properties and to help out wherever needed with both organising, all daily housekeeping duties and family cooking. The family typically enjoy a variety of healthy foods such as minestrone, sushi, shepherd’s pie, pasta and are happy for you to follow recipes.


You will also be required to travel to the family’s ski chalet which is 4 hours away (by train and car). This is maintained by 2 part time Housekeepers who work 6 hours a week when out of season, but when they travel here for holidays you will accompany them and help out with all housekeeping and cooking duties.


The ideal candidate will be discreet, have a get stuck in attitude and be flexible with their working days. You will be required to travel between the properties.


You must be able to drive.
