Working in a domestic kitchen will require you to be resourceful, discrete, efficient and flexible. You’ll need to be able to menu plan for specific locations, styles and situations, making the most of seasonal, local ingredients. There may be special dietary requirements to take into account and you’ll need knowledge of cooking on specific types of equipment – for example, an Aga. You may be required to work within a budget so intelligent shopping is a must. All current vacancies are listed here, but if a one-off job comes up in your locality we will contact you direct.

Family gathering for Christmas in a small village in Norway is looking for an experienced chef to cater for 12 adults and 10 children. Most days will be breakfast and dinner only as the family will be off skiing during the day. Style of cooking will be family food rather than fine dining. The village is 2 hours' drive from Alesund, and provisioning in the village will be basic, so planning ahead to do shopping en route to the village will be essential, and it may mean the chef will need to bring any specialty ingredients with them.
