Seeking an experienced, discreet, and friendly full-time housekeeper for a family of 6 moving to the UES. The role will start training in Aspen at the end of March, where you will arrive a couple of days before the family to set up the home and then spend 2 weeks with them there before returning to New York. Once back in New York, there will be a relatively easy Monday through Friday schedule, servicing their apartment and keeping on top of lightweight cleaning (the family will be visiting occasionally). Flexibility is essential for this role, as the family regularly frequents Aspen (and will be there from early July to mid August) and would love to have someone on-site when they arrive. However, come mid-August, NYC will be the family's full-time residence.
Initial responsibilities will include general cleaning, dusting, tidying and managing a 4-bedroom apartment, making sure it remains pristine, welcoming and ready for the family to visit at any time. The periods of time spent in Aspen are likely to be more intense and involve longer hours, and will include all general housekeeping, errands, and some provisioning.
By July, the family would like the full team to be in place and so the candidate will be working alongside other housekeepers and a laundress, and will be expected to liaise with the head housekeeper and the rest of the team. From August, the family are hoping to move into their new residence which is around 15,000 sq ft and is 6 storeys. The housekeeper must be open to helping with the initial move and set up and should have prior experience with fine furnishings and artwork, and with keeping the home organised and running smoothly.
The ideal candidate has plenty of prior experience in a similar role, is friendly, an effective communicator and has a real 'can-do' attitude. The family are keen to build a supportive, integrated team around them and appreciate a positive, 'pitch-in' and service-orientated environment. Bearing in mind the size of the new home and the number of storeys, the housekeeper should be active and fit, and able to move up and down the flights of stairs comfortably. The household is a busy one and the family are constantly on the go, candidates must be able to work in this environment and be comfortable with dogs, as they have two very sweet pups! A competitive salary is on offer (from $35/hr - $45/hr depending on experience), as are benefits, and all flights, accommodation and food will be provided while in Aspen. A driver's license is preferred and Spanish-speaking is a bonus!
If you are interested in the role, are COVID-vaccinated, and are able to travel regularly to Aspen, please apply to ZI173.
