HOUSEKEEPER/COOK FOR LOVELY KENSINGTON PENTHOUSE

We are working with an HNWI to appoint an experienced and positive Housekeeper/Cook to work for them in their lovely 3-bed penthouse apartment in South Kensington. Someone who is motivated in their work, able to manage their time effectively and work efficiently whilst maintaining the highest of standards. Ideally, you will have at least 5 years of experience in a 5* hotel - private household experience would be highly beneficial but is not paramount.

You must have excellent housekeeping knowledge and be a confident cook. The Principal enjoys relaxed family-style meals using fresh seasonal ingredients.

The role is based on a 5 day work week with days off flexible for the right candidate. Hours will be based on 9 am until 7 pm but this is again flexible and also important to work around the Principals schedule. If on occasion extra work hours/days are required, this will be compensated as a surplus in overtime pay or additional time off. The gentleman is a very respectful employer and there is normally no contact during evenings or days off.
