Full-Time Household Manager in Little Rock, AR
Discretion at all levels and in all things is required.
An Arkansas family needs a professional and extremely organized household manager to oversee the primary residence as well as other homes across the country (only occasionally and with guidance from other household managers) and would require travel. You’ll need to oversee, manage, and schedule household staff, repairmen, vendors, landscapers, and other service personnel as needed. The goal is for the home and property to remain in a well-kept state at all times.
Communication on all fronts is of utmost importance. The household manager must write well, be comfortable drafting personal correspondence, compose thank you letters, contribute to written talking points, and proof final drafts of important documents. Emails must be monitored and responded to if necessary even during off hours. Additionally, you will need to be a proactive, forward-thinking individual able to anticipate needs and take action as necessary. An NDA must be signed as well as background and credit checks completed.
In addition to the family’s travels, their business and social schedule is somewhat demanding at times and calls for tremendous flexibility on the part of the household manager to ensure their obligations are met, arrangements are handled, and all necessary personnel and resources are available as needed. This includes holiday plans and commitments.
As the family travels frequently, there are often many details to coordinate including flights, accommodations, transfers, and other reservations. Even in the family’s absence from home, our household manager will have sufficient responsibilities to maintain a full-time schedule including gift selections and purchases, various household projects, and handling floral orders. It is a dynamic household with lots of moving parts that require regular attention.
