Live in Private Chef job in Knightsbridge, London SW7

A gentleman and his partner in Knightsbridge are seeking a top-notch Chef to join his household The ideal candidate will be super flexible as the gentleman often travels. A Driver/house manager and House keeper are already employed.

The client is looking for a classically French-trained chef. However he does enjoy a wide range of cuisines, so any additional cuisines would be beneficial.

They start with a very simple breakfast which is served by the housekeeper but the chef will provide a light lunch of soup or salad or sandwiches and a larger more formal dinner. There will of course be days when the client will eat out for either lunch or dinner with friends.

The gentleman has a villa and a small yacht in the south of France so would love someone to also travel with him during the months of June – September. There is three staff employed in France.


6-day week, with Sundays off (possibly Saturdays if preferred). However this does slightly depend on the client's schedule, for instance, if he arrives back on a Thursday and has been away for 3 weeks and you have had that time off, he would like some flexibility on this.

You will have lots of down when the client will be traveling and you will not be required to work.


London: Provided in a separate apartment, literally two minutes from the gentleman’s home. It is a lower-ground studio apartment with a kitchenette and separate bathroom, in one of Knightsbridge's best apartment blocks.

France: Own room in the villa with a separate garden entrance. Car will be provided for both work and leisure use.

Salary: Up to £80K GPA depending on experience

Start: November 2023 ideally but flexible for the right candidate
