Full Time

We are seeking a Private Chef with previous experience within UHNW private residences for a lovely family in NW8.

This is a 5 day week, live out with good hours, low stress/pressure, cooking family style meals for a young couple with 2 small children. Family usually eat all together.

Healthy, simple, tasty food. Breakfast is 7.30/8 am, lunch around 12 noon (light starter and main) and dinner at 6 pm (light starter and main). The Principals go out occasionally for dinner, and when they do, you still need to cook for the children. They rarely entertain in terms of dinner parties, but there can be 1 or 2 extra adult family members for meals on occasions. When the family travel, you may be asked to prepare food for their plane.

This is an informal, quiet, serene home, so a calm, relaxed and friendly personality is a must, as is a liking of young children. There is a full staffing team - nannies, drivers, PA, House Manager, Housekeepers and no pets. The Principals are very hands off with the staff, so it is a great position for someone who is proactive, has initiative and likes fairly free rein in terms of what they cook for the family. They are keen to be introduced to a variety of new dishes. While the staff do pop in and out, you will be working mainly alone for most of the day in the kitchen, so must be comfortable with this. There is a staff room for breaks and meals.

Candidate requirements:

  • Good previous experience in a HNW home
  • Calm, relaxed and friendly personality
  • Enjoys young children.
  • Professional and energetic
  • Must be a neat and reasonably quiet worker
  • Able to keep the kitchen tidy most of the time
  • Younger, modern chef would be good personality fit with household
  • Must currently be in the London area and available for immediate interviews.

Start ASAP. Salary £50,000. Hrs 7 am to 7 pm (one day has a 9 am start), 5 day week with Tues & Wed off.
