Current Jobs

Below are some of the jobs currently on offer.

An exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has arisen to work with a fascinating HNWI family, based between their yacht and an island home in the Caribbean.

For the right person, this will definitely be the dream job! We’re seeking a confident cook who is happy to combine their chef duties with providing exemplary childcare to a young baby during the evenings, and on some mornings when both parents are at work.  

A formal cookery qualification would be ideal, as would prior childcare experience. However, attitude and personality are going to be key for this role – we’re seeking an energetic, positive person, ideally with a love of the sea and a desire to experience Caribbean island life!

The principals are fantastic; great fun and very friendly. Both parents enjoy sailing and the children are lively and affectionate.

You’d be working within a genuinely warm and happy family environment, and my clients are keen to find someone to become an integral part of the family.

This isn’t a short-term job: although the family are current predominantly land-based in the Caribbean, they are hoping to undergo a long-distance voyage in a couple of years’ time, and would love to find someone who is excited by the idea of doing this! Therefore, we’re really looking for someone who is keen to commit to being an integral part of this wonderful family for the next few years.

A high standard of English is really important for this role – German would be beneficial but is not essential.   

If you think this might be your dream job, please apply with your CV, background and salary expectations for the attention of Jessica.

We are keen to hear from polished PAs who are looking to make the next step into a fab, market-leading company who support and look after their staff. The role is based in truly stunning offices, comes with a dynamic team who are passionate about what they do, some amazing perks and will allow you to make a real difference and contribute to the success of the support team.

You will be looking after two Directors as PA and offer ad hoc support to their direct reports.

We are looking for someone who is keen and eager to progress their career within a PA role. Somewhere that isn’t too big for you to go unnoticed but not too small that you can’t have an impact. You will be full of ideas and have a fresh approach to your role but are keen to work alongside and learn from the more experienced members of the support team.

You will be a natural with core PA skills such as complex diary management, international travel and meeting management, keeping files up to date, managing processes and keeping the office running smoothly. In addition, you will love the idea of liaising directly with clients – excellent English, spelling and grammar, a real eye for detail; displaying a polished professionalism combined with a warm and engaging personality who will make each client feel valued and appreciated.

This role isn’t suitable for someone who won’t go the extra mile – we are looking for passionate PAs who if they don’t know something will take the trouble to find out; someone who will notice what’s going on around them and offer to help a colleague who’s having an extra busy day – a team player who takes pride in doing a great, not a good job. If that sounds like you please get in touch with me today.
