A family in Montclair, NJ is looking for a long-term, full-time, live-out, housekeeper/cook. The family includes the mother, father, 3-year-old girl, and 4-month-old baby boy. They have two dogs. The family is not offering relocation so only local candidates will be considered.

The housekeeper/cook must have experience working in a private home, especially a home with young children. This person should know how to be safe since they have a toddler and an infant (i.e. not leave cleaning products out, leave the door to the stairs shut; tucks in chairs, etc.).

The housekeeper/cook will be responsible for cleaning the home, making beds, doing laundry (including garment care, ironing, steaming, hand washing, stain removal, all as needed), vacuuming, dusting, cleaning floors, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning kitchen (dishes and cleaning), food delivery organization (empty bags, store food in proper organized places, recycle packaging), managing household inventory, running errands occasionally, and keeping the home organized. This person will also do light meal prep (washing and cutting vegetables to store in the refrigerator for cooking or snacks), and will cook one meal per day (can be lunch or dinner). The family does not eat meat or dairy.

Overall, they are looking for someone who is friendly, kind, communicative (open to feedback) and organized- a self-starter who can independently take it upon theirself to stay busy doing productive, helpful tasks for the family. You should be respectful of family's privacy and can remain in the background (quiet, somewhat inconspicuous), have positive energy (upbeat), be flexible (to adapt to their needs as they arise), organized, and tidy (a must), prompt (must be on time and able to follow schedule and keep time), and passionate about your work! This is a young family who need someone to help keep their home running smoothly, efficiently, and orderly. The right candidate will have the right energy and be positive, have a can-do attitude to help and enjoy being around young children and dogs.

The housekeeper/cook should also be able to travel domestically and internationally. The family usually travels to Miami during the school year sometimes and Europe for 3-4 weeks during summers. You must have a valid U.S. Passport and be willing and able to travel. When not traveling with the family, they may ask for this person to house and dog-sit.

It would be a major bonus for the family if you have childcare experience, or experience raising your own children. The mother would like someone who can watch the children while she steps away for a call, or needs to run an errand.

Hours will ideally be Monday through Friday, 10am-7pm, with a one-hour lunch break. The family is offering a monthly medical stipend, PTO, paid sick/personal days, main federal holidays paid, and a performance-based yearly bonus. The housekeeper/optional cook must have their valid drivers' license and must have their own car. The housekeeper/cook must be COVID, TDAP, and Flu vaccinated. If interested, apply to VV266.
