Switzerland, Salary £700 net per week
Our Clients, a couple with grown up children, are looking for an experienced, professional and personable live-in Housekeeper/Cook for their full-time residence in a popular Ski resort town of Switzerland. The role is to start in November and interviews can be in London or Switzerland. They are also confident visas can be obtained easily for the right person.
The Clients, who are British, have two grown up children who do not live at the residence, however, do visit during university holidays. The residence is split into the Client's residence/apartment, and an apartment above the main apartment which the children use. This is self-contained. There is also a self-contained ground apartment which will be provided to the Housekeeper/Cook.
This is an informal household. However, they do wish for the Housekeeper to understand how to deliver a formal service/etiquette for when they have guests.
There is also a family dog, a Jack Russell, so the Housekeeper must love dogs as on occasion when the Clients are travelling you will be tasked with the sole care of the pet.
