SEASONAL PRIVATE CHEF REQUIRED FOR SHOOTING ESTATE

This is an amazing opportunity for a highly talented, creative and dynamic Private Chef to join a HNW family on their shooting estate in Scotland. Assisting the family on the estate during their busy shooting season (August to January/February) you will cook breakfast, elevenses, lunch and dinner for this lovely HNW family and their guests.

The principal is incredibly passionate about food, and is looking for a world-class private chef who is creative and dynamic with their cooking, able to share in their passions and ideas, and able to design and create delicious dishes that are modern twists on classical country recipes.

You will be hardworking, dedicated and positive, with a ‘can-do’ and collaborative approach – able to work autonomously, but also happy to work with the principal on menu design and creation to ensure expectations are exceeded. You will be highly knowledgeable about produce, and find out where to source the best ingredients locally.

Accommodation provided is a shared 3-bedroom farmhouse which is within walking distance from the main residence. The estate is very rural so a driver is essential, with own vehicle preferred. You may also be required to travel to London to cook for the family when shoots are not taking place – so flexibility is key. Usual working week will be 5 days (Monday and Tuesdays off) although again flexibility will be required.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE, BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO:
• Menu design and planning in accordance to principal’s tastes, taking into consideration special dietary requirements
• Preparing delicious classical and modern dishes for the principal and their guests
• Sourcing top quality local ingredients
• Managing food orders and kitchen expenditure
• Waste management
• Maintaining hygiene standards to the highest level
• Food quality control
• Liaising with other household staff

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Passionate, creative and dynamic Private Chef with experience working for a HNW private household/shooting estate
• Able to work independently, as well as collaboratively with the principal
• Strong technical ability
• Strict hygiene procedures
• Highly organised and motivated
• Cool, calm, and able to work well under pressure
• Proactive, discreet and patient
• Flexible to travel to London when required
• Energetic, hard-working and enthusiastic
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Happy to work in rural Scotland
• Excellent checkable references
