House Manager / Cook
London, Notting Hill, Salary £45,000-£50,000 gross per annum
Our client, a UHNW family in Notting Hill / Ladbroke Grove, is now recruiting a strong Cook who can also oversee the Household Management.
There are a small team of Housekeepers, one full-time Housekeeper and four part-time.
We are looking for someone who is a good, adventurous Cook and able to lead the housekeeping team. The candidate will need the natural authority to lead the team with a background in cooking.
The right candidate will also have some life experience as well as work experience, and will be able to work with the general ethos of the house, which is relaxed but also working to high standards.
You will preferably be completely fluent in English, be fond of dogs and generally a caring individual.
Cooking is not restricted to English food; robust Italian cooking is preferred. The candidate will need to be able to prepare lunches, teas, drinks and dinners, and be prepared to shop for food – and occasionally other errands - as well as cooking.
Must be efficient communicating by email as well as face-to-face.
In addition to the Housekeepers, there is a Driver at the London house, and a team of three Gardeners. In the family office, close to the house but off-site, there is a Property Manager and an Executive Assistant, both of whom will work closely with, and support, this role.
Hours: Monday to Friday, 8-10 hours per day
Salary: £45,000-£50,000 gross per annum
