Our client, a friendly mature couple, are seeking to hire a warm yet professional domestic couple to work for them on a permanent basis at their lovely Ibiza residence.
The salary available is €3500 per month to share and you will be employed on a Spanish contract. Social security charges will be paid but you will be responsible for paying your own taxes. The property is used for approximately 4 months per year; 2 months full time during July & August, at Christmas, and then a few weeks in April, May and September. The work is very busy during these times but you will have a lot of rest and down time when the family are not in residence.
It is essential that at least one of you drives as the house is located on the coast in a remoter part of the island.
Your accommodation is set within the main house but has its own private entrance. You have a nice large room with separate kitchenette and bathroom. There are two dogs in the house so if you have a dog of your own, provided it gets along with other dogs, they may consider this. Due to the accommodation, it is not suitable for a couple with children.
Your duties shall include:
Cooking – if you have skills cooking, the family shall utilise these and will hire an extra daily cleaner to take up the bulk of the cleaning. If you do not cook, you will take care of the housekeeping and the family may hire a cook for the season separately
The family like very light cuisine – grilled fish and salads – they don’t eat a lot and eat very clean and healthy
Serving at Table, offering drinks and taking general care of the family and any guests
Housekeeping, Ironing, Laundry (if you are busy cooking – they will hire a daily cleaner to take care of the rooms)
There is another full time staff member who takes care of maintenance, gardening and the swimming pool.
Most of the time, there are just two people in residence but sometimes numbers can go up to 6. The family don’t entertain a lot and dinner party numbers tend to be more intimate at a maximum of 8 guests.
This position would suit a kind, friendly and warm couple who still understand professional boundaries and appropriate protocol. Spanish language skills are helpful but not essential. You should be well organised, well presented, smiley and happy and able to create a good positive atmosphere and living environment for the family.
You will need to have good working experience & verifiable references to be considered for this opportunity.
