Domestic Couple: Feb 2019 start
Scottish Highlands, Attractive Salary
One of our clients, who owns a private lodge in Scotland (one and a half hours north of Inverness), is looking for a Live-in Domestic Couple to cover the roles of Front of House Manager and Private Chef.
The location of the property on more than 20,000 acres in the Scottish Highlands is stunning - with dramatic scenery and wildlife. Ideally you will have experience of working in a remote / rural community and will be ready to embrace the surroundings.
The main luxury Victorian lodge is let to guests who are seeking high end service in a relaxed atmosphere which offers the privacy they are seeking. Guests include members of European Royal family and high profile entrepreneurs. It has 7 double bedrooms, drawing room, dining room, billiards room and gym / sauna and of course a fully equipped kitchen.
There are also many events which are held in the Lodge and on the surrounding estate, plus with guest cottages and a team of staff who help run the properties there is a definite community feel.
The Couple should offer proven experience working together as Private Chef / Front of House Manager.
The Private Chef will be responsible for 3 meals per day when guests are in residence - using local produce (meat and fish) and vegetables from the new patch which is being established. You should be competent to cook fresh, nutritious meals at a high level and in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Front of House Manager will be responsible for overseeing the smooth running of the Lodge ensuring guests' every needs are covered throughout their stay.
The client has asked that interested Couples highlight their salary expectation - for them, the personality and skillset are the most important elements.
Accommodation - which is beautiful - will be provided on the estate in terms of your own property.
It would be advantageous to both be drivers due to location.
It is important that you can commence work by beginning of March 2019 at the latest.
