Description

A family of four is looking for an experienced family assistant to join them in the Silver Terrace / Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. They are looking for a long-term partnership, with an independent thinker who can take charge of the household, while at the same time becoming part of the family and acting as a loving support person to their two boys (ages 3 and 4). They hope this person's role will evolve with them as the boys grow and needs change.

The FA will pitch in with general tidying of the kitchen and common areas, picking the children up from their nearby preschool occasionally (they finish at 6 p.m.), help with meal planning, grocery shopping and instacart ordering, prepare healthy, basic meals for the family, manage the home's weekly cleaners, and assist with putting laundry away. One or both parents will meet with the family assistant on a weekly basis to ensure clear communication and to discuss goals for the week and budgets for any projects.
Their ideal candidate will want to be with the family for the next 3, 4 or 5 years. One parent is from Australia and they would love to take their nanny along with them when they travel there (usually 2-3 weeks in the winter). Bonus points for someone who can transition the family off their mac-n-cheese diet to more healthy and diverse (mostly vegetarian) meals.
