A family of 5 are seeking a full-time chef to start ASAP. The schedule will be split between their homes on the Upper East Side and Litchfield County, CT and will likely be a mix of live-in and live-out, depending on the season, the family's needs, and the candidate's location.
During the academic year (September-June), candidates will be expected to work 4 days per week- Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, with Friday, Monday and Tuesday off. Wednesday and Thursday will be in the city, and Saturday and Sunday will be in CT.

The family try to eat organic as much as possible, and their focus is healthy with lots of vegetables and limited red meat. One of the children has a peanut allergy, but there are no other dietary restrictions/allergies to consider.

Seeking a warm, professional and experienced live-out housekeeper for a beautiful home in Ibiza. The principal can be flexible around the start date, but ideally it would be January or February 2023. The general schedule will be Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm, however candidates should understand that there will be busier periods when the principal (and guests) may be in residence, and quieter periods during the winter months.
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, all cleaning (mopping, dusting, vacuuming, etc) and tidying, laundry and ironing, bed-making and turn downs, deep cleaning, errands, grocery shopping, ensuring the home is fully stocked with all household, food and drink items, and really anything and everything that contributes to the smooth running of the home and a warm, welcoming, and beautifully presented environment. Candidates should have at least 5 years prior experience in a private home and previous hotel experience would also be appreciated.
The principal is keen to find someone who takes pride in their work, displays impressive attention to detail and who will look after the home as their own.

Discretion is paramount and candidates should be full of initiative and common sense, happy to work independently and without much oversight or direction.
