  • Time Off in Lieu: To compensate for the demanding schedule while in residence, we offer time back in lieu, ensuring you enjoy a well-balanced work-life experience.
  • A Platform for Global Culinary Adventures: Beyond Dubai Hills, this role includes the incredible opportunity to travel the world, cooking with local ingredients and learning new culinary techniques.


  • Extensive experience as a top chef, particularly in Mediterranean cuisine, capable of accommodating specific dietary preferences such as low salt and healthy options.
  • Exceptional organizational, time-management, and adaptability skills, ready to align with the principal's dynamic schedule.
  • A deep-seated passion for the culinary arts, driven to innovate and enhance dining experiences continuously.
  • Strong communication skills, proficiency in English, and the ability to integrate smoothly into the household's staff dynamic.
