Our high profile client is looking for a private live-out chef to work on their estate in Essex. The role would require you to cook for 2 adults and 2 children daily plus ocassionally for 3 other members of the family.
They would prefer someone who is used to working within a private household for a high profile person as confidentiality is of utmost importance.
The chef would need to be at the property by 10.30am to get lunch ready for 1pm, there would be time available in the afternoon for a break but you would need to be back by around 4pm in the afternoon to prepare dinner for the children at 6.30pm and adults at 8.30pm. The children are at school all day so will not need lunch.
Lunch is fairly relaxed but dinner formal. The chef would have to shop, lay the table for a 3 course meal and have knowledge of wine. They eat a variety of food but it would need to be healthy and of course tasty.
You will get 2 days off per week but this would not necessarily be at the weekend as this is a busy time in the house for the family.
The family travel during the school holidays so there would be down time then.
It is important that the chef has their own car as the shops are too far to walk.
Salary: £50,000 per annum but negotiable
