TEMP CHEF/HOUSEKEEPER NEEDED IN HENLEY ON THAMES

We are assisting a lovely family on holiday/business in the UK with the recruitment of a temporary Chef/Housekeeper to prepare nutritious and wholesome meals for their family of 8 (5 adults and 3 children). The candidate will be required every day from the evening of the 30th of June to the morning of the 8th of July and will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for the family.

The clients are looking to ideally appoint a personable and down to earth Chef with high hygiene standards who would also be able to perform some light housekeeping tasks such as basic dusting and vacuuming, and turning laundry over and folding clothing, towels etc. They will be staying in a rented property where deep cleaning/bed changes form part of the package, so they are just looking for a Chef/Housekeeper who can maintain the cleanliness while they’re there - the housekeeping aspect of the role will most likely take no longer than 1-2 hours per day.

The family enjoy simple and varied homemade and nutritious meals such as chicken and steamed organic vegetables, homemade burgers, hearty salads, and lots of fresh fruits. Ideally, some fresh cakes/and or biscuits for tea would also be desired. As part of the role, you will also be responsible for grocery shopping, so someone with their own reliable vehicle is required.

Working hours might vary depending on the family’s exact plans for each day but will generally be from around 7am/8am to 7pm/8pm. A live-out position, the preference would be that the candidate lives locally and is self-employed.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Menu planning in line with the clients’ preferences and dietary requirements
• Daily preparation of family style breakfasts, lunches and dinners
• Maintaining hygiene standards to the highest level; cleaning the kitchen
• Food quality control
• Grocery shopping and errand running
• Light cleaning/housekeeping to include dusting and vacuuming, and washing, drying and folding towels and clothing
• Rubbish and recycling management

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Confident Cook/Chef with high hygiene standards
• Ability and willingness to undertake light housekeeping tasks and a good eye for detail
• Fluency in English and eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• Energetic and positive
• Proactive and organised
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Based locally in the Henley-on-Thames area and a driver with their own car
• Excellent checkable references
