Job Description

We are a friendly, nature-loving Turkish-American family of three living in a beautiful home in Kemer Country in the Belgrade Forest outside of Istanbul. We are seeking an experienced couple interested in joining our home in the capacity of live-in gardener and cook/housekeeper.

Responsibilities for the gardener would include the upkeep of the home and garden. Duties include mowing, sweeping/raking/shoveling and watering lawn, plant upkeep and animal tending (outdoor dogs and hens), car washing, periodic pool maintenance as well as the planting, upkeep and harvest of a vegetable garden. An individual with handyman skills would be ideal for small in-home maintenance as well.

Responsibilities for the cook/housekeeper would include some household administration duties such as checking inventory and doing the food/supplies shopping, cooking of family meals and assistance when entertaining guests. Housekeeping duties are shared with our daughter's nanny (also live-in) and would include general cleaning such as laundry, vacuuming, dusting, surface cleaning, dishes, overall tidying, and in particular the upkeep of the kitchen space.

The family travels and we would need to entrust the security and maintenance of our home to the individuals in these roles while we are away, so good professional references and background check are essential.

The household has had a long-time family assistant for the last 20+ years who speak Turkish and some English. As he is seeking retirement in about 5-8 years, he will train both individuals by sharing his knowledge in all of the household preferences, vendors, maintenance companies, recipes, etc.

We would love individuals with some experience in Turkey and permission to work in Turkey but will consider sponsoring for the right couple. Knowledge of Turkish isn't a requirement but a willingness to learn the basics will be important.

Vacation time includes two paid weeks off the first year and we are flexible on additional time off as required. Health insurance will be covered by the family.

We live in a wonderful home in Kemer Country in the quiet Belgrade Forest, a 25-40 minute drive into bustling Istanbul (depending on traffic!). A metro station will be open within the year for faster connections.

The couple will have a furnished, dedicated bedroom with a television and bathroom. We have excellent internet service and will provide a .

At least one of the candidates must be a confident and licensed driver.
