Family is seeking proactive and professional Family Assistant that will meet the needs of the busy teenage children, and keep the household running smoothly. Mom is seeking a true partner who will have a can-do attitude. Candidate will observe what is needed, and take action, in order to maintain an orderly, clean and maintained home. Duties will include light housekeeping (tidying kitchen, laundry, bedrooms), school pick-up (one mile from home; excellent driving record required; family has a car to use while on the job), preparing a snack, transporting to activities, maintaining inventory of supplies and groceries and shopping accordingly, errands, making lunches for the next day, and preparing dinner for the kids (with the exception of take-out night about once/week). There are two medium-sized dogs (Cocker Spaniel and 5-month-old black lab), so the family assistant will be responsible for an occasional feeding, but they have a regular dog walker. Family also has a housekeeper for deep cleaning 2 times/week. Candidate will be a self-starter, have high energy, be flexible, dependable, and have an extremely positive attitude. Family assistant will be mature and not be above any task in order to help out the family, acting as a true extension of Mom. Both parents work full-time and Dad travels frequently. When both parents travel, an occasional overnight with school drop-off may be needed (approx 2x/month). Please also note that family also has a 16-year-old that will be attending boarding school in the fall.
