  • Overview

    A professional, dynamic, and bustling family of four are seeking an all-star family assistant to join their truly exceptional home and team in Silicon Valley's Menlo Park!

     

    This hardworking and lively family is always on the go and has many moving pieces, including their dynamic household staff and two wonderful school-aged children. Both principals are busy professionals, and their home environment can be described as organized, professional, and action-packed, while also incredibly family-oriented, caring, and relaxed. They are seeking a tech-savvy, experienced, and thoughtful candidate who values a team spirit as much as they do!

     

    The ideal candidate for this position will be career-oriented and a jack or jill-of-all-trades who thrives in a work environment where they can wear multiple hats and multi-task! The family has put together a hardworking, proactive staff, so collaboration and a team mentality is incredibly important. Enjoying organizational projects, scheduling, and coordinating amongst the entire team is key. This role will include scheduling, administrative assistance for the principals, and day-to-day organizational tasks that help keep the home running smoothly. Managing family and household projects such as planning events, booking travel, vendor management and procurement, and coordinating activities for their children can also be expected! A candidate who enjoys working with children will feel at home in this role, as assisting with school and activity pick ups and drop offs, and managing their day-to-day routines will be an important piece of this role as well.

     

    This is a full-time, live-out position with an anticipated schedule of 40-50+ hours/week. The general schedule will fall on Mondays through Fridays from 9 am to 6 pm with flexibility appreciated. The family is offering $35-$40+/hour as well as a generous benefits package. They hope to find the perfect candidate as soon as possible!
