Live-in Housekeeper / Cook
Italy, Bologna, Salary €1,200 net per month
Our client - a professional businesswoman (Italian / English) - who lives in a 2 storey villa / farm a few miles south of Bologna is looking to employ a live-in Housekeeper / Cook.
There are various elements of this role with one of the priorities being that you must be very comfortable with animals as she has 4 well behaved rescue dogs, 11 cats, a few rabbits and a horse. Her last housekeeper had to return home after 5 years and she is now looking for the right person to run her home and assist looking after the animals to allow her to focus on her business.
The home is on two levels and contains some precious antique pieces so it is essential that you have the knowledge of how to care for these. She entertains fairly regularly and therefore would like you to be a good cook, and if you enjoy gardening too then that would be a bonus.
It is possible that our client will return to the UK (with animals) and would welcome the Housekeeper to remain in her employ however no date is yet confirmed for her move so this role will most likely be a minimum of a year in Italy.
