Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator
A fantastic family, 2 adults & 2 Sons 14 & 16 years old, living 30 minutes walk outside Dublin city centre, Southern Ireland, are looking for a young & energetic, family orientated Cook/Personal Assistant to coordinate & ensure the smooth running of their busy household. Their present employee, who was placed by Dallas Dacre Lacy Domestic Recruitment Agency, is now very sadly moving on after 4 1/2 wonderful years.
This position requires a candidate who will be like an older sibling to the boys, is a stable presence & will make sure that they aren’t being led astray by their friends, particularly when the Parents are away! You may also be asked occasionally to escort the boys on flights.
Cooking for 2 hungry teenage boys is a major part of the role so the Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator needs to enjoy preparing interesting dishes to suit special dietary requirements. The eldest son has various food allergies such as nuts, fish eggs & kiwi fruit & the Father a Celiac.
You will need to ensure the youngest Son focuses on his homework& sometimes assist him. Also you will need to organise everything the boys need for school such as books, clothes, sports, lifts etc.
Whilst the boys are at school you are free to go to the gym etc for a couple of hours as long as you are back late morning/early afternoon to run errands for my client, prepare the meals, do the household shopping & support her whilst her Husband works away from home 3 days a week.
The family employ 2 Housekeepers.
My client sometimes accompanies her Husband or even travels on her own for 3-4 days so will require the Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator to have lots of initiative & be responsible for the 2 boys in the Parent’s absence.
The day will start @ 7.00am & finish approx 7.30pm with a few hours break in the morning as long as everything gets done.
The general working days are Monday to Friday but flexibility is required to stay at the weekend if the parents are away.
The Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator needs to be a confident driver, a small BMW is provided for your use. It would also be ideal if you enjoy participating in sporting activities including skiing as the family going skiing in the winter. Both boys are keen rugby players.
The family have a home in Portugal with a pool so it would be advantageous if the Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator young & dynamic is willing to accompany the family to the property sometimes in the holidays.
You must be fluent in English & well educated so you can help the younger Son with his homework.
The job is to start. End of January beginning February 2019.
The salary on offer is negotiable for a competent Cook/Personal Assistant/Family Coordinator depending on experience. My client would prefer the employee to live in & is offering self contained flat with kitchen & sitting room.
APPLICANTS MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF 2 YEARS EXPERIENCE AS A COOK/PERSONAL ASSISTANT/FAMILY COORDINATOR WORKING FOR ONE EMPLOYER & VERIFIABLE WRITTEN REFERENCES.
