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.

‘For two students who had just completed two terms at Leiths all members of the family agreed they were outstanding – polite, thoughtful and nothing was ever too much trouble. They made this a very special holiday for all ages to remember’
