A new client of Greycoat Lumleys is seeking a professional Domestic couple to manage a property near to Zurich in Switzerland

One of the candidates needs to be a strong chef as the client does appreciate a variety of modern European food and sometimes hosts dinner parties for friends and family.

The family are not overly formal and seek candidates who can offer flexibility and understand the changing demands of private service. The family live at the property as their main residence year round and their first language is English so fluency in English is of course mandatory but other languages such as French and German are a bonus.

The property is large and has 10 bedrooms. The family consists of 4 people with two children under the age of 10. All daily meals should be prepared by the successful candidates. Breakfast – informal and quick spread before the children go to school followed by a light lunch (usually two courses) for the parents who mostly eat at home. Dinner is eaten as a family and is more structured.

All daily Housekeeping and laundry should be undertaken by the candidates.

An ideal start date for successful candidate is the 1st of July. The client will consider British candidates providing they are happy to apply for work permits in Switzerland. The client’s family office would assist with this.

A separate and modern private home is provided to the successful candidates within the grounds of the private property. The staff accommodation is recently built to a high specification – this is provided at no extra cost to the employees. 

As Greycoat Lumleys has a SECCO license, we are able to legally operate in Switzerland being one of the only Domestic staffing agencies outside of Switzerland able to do this.
