A fun and busy family of six in downtown Manhattan is seeking a full-time family assistant to join their team. The schedule would be Monday through Friday from about 1pm to 8pm, but they would love to find someone with flexibility to stay late two nights per week if needed. The family spends their Summers in Southampton, NY, so needs someone who can spend part of the summer there and can drive. There is another nanny on staff whose sole job is childcare, so this job would be a hybrid of nanny/PA responsibilities.
Job responsibilities include assisting with personal administration, shopping, and general organization of day-to-day operations that the family may need support on. You are expected to help with their 4 children (4 yrs, 8 yrs, 10 yrs and 12 yrs-old), who will need shuttling around after school and help with structuring time for homework in the evening. Assistant-related tasks include things like scheduling appointments, running errands, planning vacations, purchasing and wrapping gifts, mailing holiday cards, completing school/camp/insurance paperwork, securing dining reservations, and filling and monitoring prescriptions. Keeping the home stocked with essentials and maintaining the tidiness of the home in coordination with the housekeeper (including things like some laundry and meal prep) will be part of the role, too.
The ideal candidate is positive and optimistic, with a pitch-in attitude and a good sense of humor. Someone who is tech savvy, enjoys administrative and creative projects as well as kids and dogs will do best in the role. You will be a true addition to the family team.
You must be comfortable with a dog in the home and have a valid driver's license with a clean driving record. You must be vaccinated for COVID to be considered for the role. If you're interested and are legal to work in the US, apply to EB151.
