Family Background
The family live in a beautiful countryside house with their three children aged 10, 8 and 2. Both parents lead an active busy lifestyle and they have a family PA who helps out organising their lives. They are active and health conscious, and they are looking for a chef to bring highly nutritious, fresh family meals for both them and the children.

However the family are open to longer/flexible hours for you to do more prep for the next day, do shopping and fridge organisation, and start and manage a vegetable patch in the garden. You will also be asked to cook for occasional dinner parties the family may have.
You must speak a good level of English.
Special Skills
