Live-Out Private Chef Required for UHNW Family in Oxfordshire (Part-Time, 3-day week)

Live-Out Private Chef Required for UHNW Family in Oxfordshire (Part-Time, 3-day week)

We have an immediate vacancy for a highly experienced, discreet, and reliable full-time Private Chef to cater for a family at their home in Oxfordshire.

You will mainly be cooking for the family (both parents and 3 children), serving food and beverages throughout the day, and will also be required to cook for the household staff as required. You will occasionally be required to travel to the family’s other residence in Suffolk.

Duties will include cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and maintaining a clean and organised kitchen at all times. You will also be responsible for planning menus for small parties and events so experience accurately estimating quantities of food based on number of guests would therefore be useful.

Our clients are looking for someone who is passionate about food and capable of producing fresh, healthy meals. You will have a passion for healthy living, experience in catering for various dietary requirements (including food intolerances) and possess a creative flair using both luxurious menus and cooking at a more simple but healthy level. You must have high standards and be flexible in your approach as things can change at short notice. The family are very down to earth and therefore looking for someone happy to roll up their sleeves and hit the ground running.

Experience working in a private household, or for high-net-worth individuals is advantageous but not essential. Core working hours are 9am-6pm, working across 5 days per week, but flexibility is required. You will cover weekends and have 2 consecutive days off during the week but will have one weekend off per month. A strong work ethic is essential, along with proven longevity and loyalty to previous roles and employers.
