From 2008 to 2012 she worked in 2 lodges in Scotland for a very famous fashion house until they sold one of the lodges. She worked in a private house in London for a short time until they wished her to move to Switzerland and she found she was paying for their food as they did not repay her credit card used for provisioning! Her salary of £400 net per week was not up to that!
She move for three years to the estate of a Lord and Lady but left as it was just too isolated and recently has been working for a world famous racing figure at his stud as cook to the Equine school but this is a contract only and for 8 months. She will be free in November.
She is a gentle, skilled lady, often put upon to work terribly long hours for very low pay and now wishes to use her cooking, management and admin skills to good use for an appreciative employer who understands how to keep staff, she has worked for some lovely people and now just needs a long term role again.
She is experienced in all household duties, heavy cleaning, working with arts and antiques or leathers and marble. She is able to do laundry and ironing and is confident working with fine fabrics. Packing and unpacking, coordinating wardrobes and sewing if needed.
She likes to cook and has completed a cooking course at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, serving and table set up, she really can do it all.
