ROTATIONAL ASSISTANT CHEF FOR UHNW FAMILY

An ultra-high net worth family of 5 based in North London are seeking to hire an experienced, hard-working Assistant 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.

Joining a team, you will work on two weeks on two weeks off rotation (rotation will be different during Covid times to allow for quarantine periods) and will work 16-hour shift whilst on duty. 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.

Whilst on duty, you will stay in shared staff accommodation which is located near to residence – you will have your own room with shared kitchen, lounge, garden and bathroom (3 bathrooms between usually 5 people).

RESPONSIBILITIES
- Assist in preparing meals in accordance to client’s recipes or tastes, handling meals for some of the household staff (taking into consideration special dietary requirements and cultural/religious practices)
- Check freshness of food and ingredients
- 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)
- 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
- Proactive, discreet and patient
- Flexible to travel with the family in their multiple properties
- Energetic, hard-working and enthusiastic
- Able to work independently and as part of a team
- Trustworthy, reliable and discreet
- Excellent checkable references

If this role sounds of interest and you meet the essential criteria, please apply within or get in touch to find out more.
