A competent, experienced and capable cook is required for a formally run, traditional household in Stirling over the Christmas period. The same clients are looking for a live in Housekeeper 18 December - 2nd January, so this job could suit a couple to work together.

The chef will be in charge of cooking breakfast (always cooked with eggs cooked to order), lunches and dinners. Everything is always usually served buffet style, from a hot plate in the dining room. Two course lunches and three course dinners.

You should be experienced working in private households and be flexible with changing timings and plans. There is a house manager to help in the kitchen at meal times with washing up and serving as well.

The housekeeper would be in charge of cleaning the house, making beds, laundry, ironing etc. and helping at meal times.

The couple or individual chef/housekeeper must be happy in their own company - this is not a job where you will get heavily involved with the family or have a lot to do with the clients so you should have a personality that does not mind this. Up to 9-10 adults and 5 children.

You must be capable of cooking meat and making use of food from the freezer (eg venison/game). You may be asked to cater for differing diet requirements.

It is not essential you have your own car, but it is highly recommended as the house is remote. Accommodation provided on site.

Rates depend on experience, and day rates are double on 25/26 December and 31 December and 1 January.
