Job description


Starting 28th October 2019

Permanent, full-time private chef/cook required for a large, private country house near Peterborough. 

You will have suitable experience with a knowledge and passion for food. Excellent organisational skills are essential to ensure the smooth running of the kitchen, including sourcing the best seasonal ingredients (some grown in the kitchen garden), as well as larder and freezer management. You will be encouraged to continue to develop your skills with a family that appreciates all kinds of good food.

The family lives mostly in Cambridgeshire but 6-8 weeks of each year are spent at their other country houses in North Wales and South Yorkshire where the chef/cook will usually accompany them. The core family is 2-4 people, but regular entertaining is involved in all 3 houses for up to 25 people and during the non-guest periods you will be expected to continue to extend and develop the repertoire. There are also some regular staff meals that need to be provided.

A variety of accommodation is available depending on your personal circumstances and you must be a driver with a full, clean driving licence and your own car. There is access to a staff car for shopping and other work-related travel.

In return we offer a very attractive salary package that includes a pension scheme and life assurance. A minimum of 1.5 days off per week and five weeks holiday p.a.

Please apply with CV.

There is no need to provide bank account details or payment to any person or organisation when applying for a job.
