Re advertised as the cook placed is no longer available - please only apply if you are a FULLY committed FREELANCE chef looking for a regular 3 x day a week job based in London and can fully commit your time to the client on all the days required at the times requested. Please fully read the job description below and only apply if you are 100% certain you can meet the requirements.
An experienced and professional vegan chef (that is happy to handle chicken to cook for the dog) is required to replace the current chef who is leaving to have a baby. You will be cooking in the clients home and it is very important you are extremely hygienic and flexible as there are certain rules to follow. The house is located in Notting Hill, W2.
The job will officially start on Friday 29th March 2019, and you must be available on this day and then on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays ongoing 9am-2pm for the foreseeable future. You will be preparing lunches and dinners for one gentleman to reheat - all dishes must be easy to reheat and completely made in full with cooking instructions. You will also be preparing food for the dog and this involves handling chicken.
You must be an experienced vegan cook and an exceptionally tidy, clean and organised worker and must be available to work on all the days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Hours 9am - 2pm. No flexibility on hours or days.
The gentleman is completely vegan and has strict likes/dislikes which can be sent on to available candidates. He is not gluten free. You must be flexible and able to adapt to the requirements and get on with the requests without having an opinion. This may mean you have to change the style in which you may cook some dishes in order to meet the way the client likes it done, as with all private chef jobs.
You will be working in the clients kitchen (this is not a drop off delivery job) and will be working closely with the clients housekeeper so must be happy to work alongside her in the kitchen.
You must be a freelance chef with a UTR number and you will be paid directly by the client.
There will be periods when the client is away on holiday and you are therefore not required. Notice of holiday dates will be given and you can either take holiday yourself or take on other work.
You may be required before 29th March to do trials so should have some availability in January, February and early March as well for occasional days.
£35/hour for min. 5 hour shifts each day Mon, Wed, Fri 9am-2pm (£175 per day / £525 per week).
Please only apply if you have the following:
Previous and RECENT experience in private households for long stints of time, and proven references from these clients within the last 3 months
You must have been working as a PRIVATE CHEF for the last 6 months
An extensive portfolio of photos of your food on either a website and/or instagram page (no personal pictures should be on the instagram page)
Extensive knowledge in vegan cookery
