Nanny / Family Assistant - Partially Remote
October 11th, 2021
An active, loving, and hard-working family of 5 in Tribeca is seeking an experienced Family Assistant to help run the household smoothly and help with childcare. The ages of the children are 11, 9, and 4.
This role will be about 35% remote and about 65% in person.
Job responsibilities include but are not limited to everything related to helping the household run smoothly, shopping, purchasing gifts, handling deliveries, grocery shopping for the family, researching and booking fun activities for the children, booking travel arrangements, scheduling appointments, administrative assistance for the parents, and assisting with childcare.
Flexibility to cover for the family’s full-time nanny when she is sick or needs time off is required.
The eldest child will start school near Prospect Park in Brooklyn in the Fall, and the Family Assistant will most likely need to help him get home on the train for at least another year or two.
Skills needed are; the ability to multi-task, efficiency, time management, effective communication, and research and administrative skills.
The right candidate will be detail-oriented, organized, reliable, flexible, proactive, honest, discreet, and can anticipate the needs of a busy family.
The availability to travel with the family on occasion is a plus but not a requirement. In a typical summer, the family travels to France, Spain and England for approx 4-6 weeks and is in the NY area for the rest of the summer. There may be overnights on Mon-Fri if the family decides to work remotely from a vacation home in the Tristate area. The Family Assistant would likely split some of the travel/overnights with the FT nanny over the course of the summer.
The family prioritizes the best long-term fit and can be flexible to meet PT or FT hours for the right candidate.
The candidate must be willing to follow CDC safety guidelines for the remainder of the pandemic.

Legally permitted to work in the U.S.
