RUSSIAN-SPEAKING ROTATIONAL JUNIOR PRIVATE CHEF

An ultra-high net worth family based in North London are seeking to hire an experienced, hard-working Junior Private Chef to work on a rotational basis in their family home. This is an incredible opportunity to work for a highly prominent international family - they have multiple properties globally and expect high standards throughout their households.

You will cover breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as being partially in charge of the staff’s meals. In addition to daily family cooking, there will be occasional dinner parties and gatherings to prepare for and therefore you would need to be flexible to work longer hours where required.

• Inspect supplies, equipment and work areas for cleanliness and functionality
• Order and maintain inventory of food and supplies
• Monitor sanitation practices and follow kitchen safety standards
• Any other reasonable duties asked by management

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA
• Excellent cooking skills (min. Sous-Chef level ideally with Kosher and Russian cuisine experience)
• Fluent Russian-speaker
• Experience working for a VIP private household/yacht (minimum 2 years)
• Strong technical ability is essential
• Hands-on approach
• Experience of serving would be beneficial
• Strict on hygiene procedures
• Well-presented and ambassador for the family
• Highly organised, motivated and team spirited
• Adaptable to current systems and ways of working
