About the Villa

The property is situated in the area of Antibes. This Provencal-style French villa is a family home of a lovely owner couple. 

As for the property itself, it consists of 4 bedrooms in the main house and 2 bedrooms in the adjoining guest-house. There are beautiful large gardens spanning the property. 

There is also a swimming pool on the property.

The owners of the property live in the Villa along the summer time, this is their second home and they tend to use it from beginning May ish till September ish full time. Their children and grandchildren often visit the property. The number of guests during the holidays can vary between 4 to 10 guests maximum. The clients are a genial owner-couple and they expect high standards of service from their household staff. The clients are extremely respectueux and equally expect their staff to be respectful. This is a family villa mainly used by Mr & Mrs during the said period of time. 

The project

This is a service-oriented position and we are looking for candidates who are flexible in domestic household service. We are looking for an experienced Waiter / House Help  ready to start working as of May 01st, 2023 under a CDD contract of 5-6 months, more precisely from May - September 2023. 

This is a LIVE OUT position.

The duties of the Waiter/House-Help will be as follows:

  • This is a service-oriented position and we are looking for candidates who are flexible in domestic household service.
  • Your shift will begin at 12:00pm lunch time. The owners have their lunch around 01:00pm or 01.30 pm. You will be in-charge of the lunch service. Before hand, you will be in charge of setting the table and if flower arrangement is needed, it will be welcomed if you prepare a nice bouquet.
  • Dinner time for the clients is around 08:30 pm in the evening. Hence, you would also be in-charge of the dinner service and setting / clearing off the table.
  • Your meal-service duties include cleaning the table, setting up the table, the dinnerware, cutlery, etc, and clearing the table and the dishes after the meals.
  • Please Note: You would be in-charge of cleaning the dishes and cutlery as well. You may use the dishwasher for the appropriate dishes. If needed, you will need to give a hand to clean the kitchen once the cook has left. 
  • You may be asked to assist in other small duties around the household, hence we expect the candidates to be flexible and open-minded in this respect. You will be part of a team willing to give their best services to Mr and Mrs; sharing this mindset is extremely important, especially knowing that it is a family villa. 
  • Since it is just the couple themselves for most of the spring/summer, the service and cleaning duties would not be very exhaustive, however, they need to meet high standards.
