TEMP LIVE-IN CHEF & HOUSEKEEPER COUPLE – SPAIN

We have an amazing opportunity for a highly experienced, hardworking, and talented Chef & Housekeeper/House Manager Couple to support a HNW family in their 7-bedroom holiday home just outside Marbella, Spain. Working as a Couple, you will hit the ground running to maintain the upkeep of this luxury property to exacting standards this summer. Overseeing all functions of housekeeping, laundry, and ironing, as well as food preparation and high-end service, you will also liaise with contracted gardeners and pool cleaners to ensure the smooth running of the property and grounds as a whole.

Able to manage your time effectively, you will be flexible, pro-active, and able to work collaboratively with the part-time Housekeeper to ensure that all of the family’s needs are met.

The family are looking for a polished, well-presented Couple and though not essential, Spanish language skills will be hugely beneficial.
