Job Description: Live in Housekeeping / Cook job in Knightsbridge


A friendly Gentlemen in Knightsbridge is seeking a top notch Housekeeper/Cook to help him out. The ideal candidate will be super flexible as the Gentlemen often travels, so hours of work and days off will vary depending on his schedule and travel plans. A Driver/PA is already employed who has been with the employer for 17 years.


Your duties will include the daily general cleaning, laundry, ironing and errand running. He also employs a fulltime daily Chef, so you will need to cook on the Chefs days off or when he is on vacation. This means you must be a confident cook as the Gentleman enjoys a wide range of cuisines including Italian, French, English and more. He has a very simple breakfast and a light lunch of soup or salad or sandwiches and a larger more fancy dinner. You must be able to follow recipes and be confident making tasty sauces and dressings.


The gentlemen has a Villa and a small yacht in the south of France so you must be happy to travel with him when required. This will be typically between the months of June – September. You would work alongside another 3 housekeepers in his beautiful villa and also do service on his yacht which already has a captain. Deckhand experience would be a great bonus for when coming into port. You will also be required to travel to Beirut throughout the year for typically 2 weeks at a time. The Gentleman has an amazing Apartment there with 8 fulltime staff that you will work alongside.
