I am working on a wonderful housekeeper/cook role for someone who is very confident in cooking. Asian and European family style cooking are definitely a part of the weekly menu, so you must be experienced in cooking and be able to follow a recipe. As part of the interview process you will be asked to compose a 5 day sample menu and complete a trial.

There are two other housekeeper/cooks who work in the house, with whom you will share the housekeeping and cooking duties. The house is beautifully presented and experience of working in formal private households with excellent references are an absolute must for being considered for this position.

You will be cooking for a Chinese family of four each week as well as managing housekeeping and laundry, within the team of three. Beautiful accommodation is provided in a separate mews house, which can be accessed from the end of the garden of the main house, so is very convenient.

I am looking for someone who loves their job! Who is passionate about cooking, who loves caring for a family and who works to high standards. No job is too difficult or request too demanding.

The family have a dog, so please only apply if you are comfortable around pets.

Please read through this job spec carefully as you will need:
  • A proven right to work in the UK
  • At least 5 years' private household experience
  • Exceptional references
  • Longevity in the roles outlined on your CV
  • Images of your cooking
