A busy and down to earth family of four on the Upper East Side is looking for a reliable and flexible family assistant/housekeeper/nanny to start in early October. The schedule will be Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:30pm.
The perfect person will be an all-star at running a household and happy to manage the procurement of groceries and household inventory, prepare meals for the whole family, do family laundry, keep the home neat and organized, arrange for and greet vendors, and assist with anything else assigned by the principals. The family employs a housekeeper that comes 3x a week and this position will not require deep cleaning.
The family has two girls ages 8 and 11 and you may occasionally be asked to run for an after school pick up and provide coverage in the afternoons and evenings.

This position is starting at $25/hr and will provide the opportunity to grow that compensation figure. The family will also be providing typical benefits including paid time off, a health care stipend, and a metro card.
