A busy family in Boston is seeking a mature, flexible, positive-minded individual to work with their family as a house manager. The family is looking for someone who wants a long-term commitment and is willing to commit fully to the job. The schedule will typically be M-F, 12:30-7:30pm, but the candidate must be flexible to adjust as necessary if things come up. The candidate must be able to spend weeks in the summer (July and August) with the family at their vacation home in Martha's Vineyard.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to- driving children to and from activities, grocery shopping, running errands, pet care, light housekeeping, meeting/interacting with vendors, meal prep (and cooking for the children), helping to set up and close the vacation home, and a variety of tasks that arise. While childcare will not be the main focus of this position, the family is looking for someone with previous experience with them, as well as someone who is comfortable in a home that has children with some special needs. Prior food preparation experience is necessary, as is a comfort level in driving children.
The ideal candidate is upbeat, patient, organized, flexible and has a sense of humor. The family requires someone who is a self-starter, has strong communication skills and accepts feedback well. If you are interested in this position and legal to work in the US, please apply online to AS034.
