Switzerland, German-speaking part
Essential Requirements: Previous Private House Experience, Chef & Housekeeper, Flexible, German speaker

A wonderful vacancy for a multifaceted, hands-on chef who is open to duties outside of the kitchen and has experience working within a private residence.

This role will entail preparing daily meals for this professional couple who enjoy simple, freshly prepared, healthy food. Knowledge of Vegetarian cuisine would be beneficial. There is a wonderful kitchen garden maintained by the gardener and the family would prefer to have a chef who will make good use of this, using seasonal and home-grown produce where possible. Generally cooking will be for the principals providing daily lunch and dinner. The family do entertain on occasion and when they have larger numbers of guests, they will bring in caterers.

In addition to the duties in the kitchen of which you will be completely responsible for, you will work in all general house-keeping duties.

This will be a Monday-Friday position; when the principals have occasional weekend demands you will be required to adjust your days off. Salary negotiable based on experience. Separate free accommodation on the Estate (separate from the main house). German speaker. English would be a bonus. September start. (HU3721)
