Proactive + Resourceful City-Savvy Family Assistant/Kid Manager NEEDED for HNW Family with 3 school-age girls, based in NYC (with frequent travel to LA)! Family is open to ALL US Candidates (as long as you’re willing to relocate); however, they will prioritize NYC + LA based candidates. Position is live-out. In this role you will manage all aspects of the children’s lives; from school pick up and afternoon/evening care, to coordinating activities, play dates and appointments, researching/booking travel/extracurriculars, acting as a liaison with coaches and teachers, communicating with household staff (housekeeper, driver, assistants, etc.), managing household inventory, simple meal prep for the kids, ensuring school work is completed, getting them ready for the next day, and communicating effectively throughout the day with parents, their assistants and the girls. If you are hyper organized, efficient, structured, a master of logistics, and a multitasker extraordinaire, who truly enjoys connecting with older kids, keep reading!
LOCATION: Upper West Side, NYC
START DATE: Mid-August (or sooner if possible!)
SCHEDULE: Mon-Fri 40-50 hours (+ occasional weekends); typical in-person hours 1/2pm-7/8pm (with additional tasks done remotely in the mornings)

The ideal candidate for this role is confident, firm yet fun, adaptable, not afraid to ask questions, good at anticipating needs, tech savvy, and unflappable. You need to be quick on your feet, able to pivot when schedules change, and thrive when busy. Your days will go by quickly with all that you have to manage and while it will take a little while for the girls to warm up to someone new, once you’re in – you’re in! This is a wonderful family who has great longevity with their past employees, but due to their current family assistant moving, are in need of a new support system in the coming weeks! They are looking to interview ASAP, so don’t wait – apply NOW!
