This family of 5 is looking for an incredibly responsible, fun, kind and cheerful person to act as Household Manager and Family Assistant. They have three children: a 12-year old boy in 7th grade, and two girls ages 15 and 16. Their interests include soccer, playing video games, arts and crafts, skiing, swimming and volleyball. For two children, their first language is German, but speak English fluently. They need someone with flexibility to come in earlier when one parent is travelling to help with driving the children to school at 7:30 a.m.
In addition to assisting with school drop-offs and pick-ups, helping with homework, and taking the children to activities, this family is seeking someone with excellent home management skills. They have a 10,000 sq. ft. home and are in need of someone who likes to take initiative and vet vendors for home maintenance including pool, elevator, window washing and chimney cleaning services.
The candidate will also be responsible for car maintenance, running errands, dry cleaning and grocery shopping (the children love fresh fruit and veggies!). This job does not require cooking, however chipping in with loading / unloading the dishwasher is appreciated. The family has a wonderful housekeeper.
