A permanent freelance, self employed chef is required to work for an Italian family based in Notting Hill.
You must be extremely professional and happy to work in an Italian, traditional, formal household alongside other staff members (butlers and housekeepers). You will work Monday-Friday with two Saturdays a month. Hours generally 11/12 - 8pm.
The family travel during children school holidays and during these times you are either not required to cook for the family (but may need to go into the house to do food prep/kitchen clean/stock checks) or can take this time as holiday.
You will be preparing the family lunch and dinner and cooking for the occasional dinner party when they entertain. They will be moving to Knightsbridge towards the end of the year.
This is for a Self Employed chef with a UTR number - to be paid £175/day for up to 8 hours and any overtime paid at £20/hour. You are paid for the days you work and during the clients periods of travel you can take off as holiday or work for other clients.
It would be useful if you speak Italian (but not essential) and you should have previous Italian cookery experience. You must be able to make fresh bread, fresh pasta, traditional Italian dishes.
You should be experienced and mature and understand this is a chef position therefore you are a member of 'household staff' and should feel happy/at ease working in a formal environment within a private household. Discretion is very important. You must also be a very organised and well presented and tidy, clean chef as the kitchen is all open plan so working in a tidy way is extremely important.
