A welcoming family in Harvard is looking for a thoughtful part time household manager to begin as soon as the right match is found! One parent works from home occasionally and the other works outside the home full time. They have 3 children (14, 11, and 3.5) who attend full day school. This role is completely centered around swift and successful management of all household duties!
The schedule for this position has a significant amount of flexibility. A guarantee of 20-25 hours/week is ideal and those hours can be scheduled either M-F in the mornings or afternoons or can be 3 longer days, such as M/W/F. Please inquire if you have a specific scheduling configuration that you would be interested in!
Duties include family meal support/cooking 3-4 times per week (recipes will be provided), grocery shopping, errands, home organizational projects, household laundry, children’s linens, making beds each day, vacuuming/sweeping as needed, keeping household items organized and stocked, and general tidying throughout the day (no deep cleaning). A friendly, sweet dog is also a part of this family and they would greatly appreciate someone who would take her for a walk upon arrival for the day, but this is not required.
Perfect matches for this family are responsible, thorough, and take pleasure in a job well done. A proactive approach to the day combined with an innate sense of how to keep everything sailing smoothly are keys to success. Comfort with children (childcare is not a part of this role) and pets being in the home is a must. Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
