Calm + Collaborative Family Assistant / Nanny Needed In LA

 

 

 

 

A creative, loving, and hardworking family based in Los Angeles is seeking a jack or jill-of-all-trades candidate to join their family in a hybrid role as their family assistant and nanny.

A collaborative team spirit is the name of the game in this home, as this family has put together an intimate and tight-knit family team that collaborates seamlessly with one another and pitches in wherever needed. Though there are many moving parts for this family that is always on the go, they have established a comfortable and easygoing environment in their home. Their interests include art, nature, film, and literature, and their work takes them all over the world with frequent travel, but their number one priority is always family. With two young children, they are hopeful for a personality match in this role who can be an extra beam of support so the family can focus on what is most important.

 

The ideal candidate for this position will be highly organized, flexible, generous, trustworthy, and will have an all-hands-on-deck spirit. A sense of confidentiality will be essential as the family highly values privacy and discretion. They are hopeful for a professional candidate who can bring a balance of confidence and humility to the role; able to both delegate tasks and pitch-in as a team player. This position will work in tandem with the family’s full-time nanny and other staff to provide childcare as needed in addition to their administrative responsibilities. Other tasks may include scheduling any maintenance or deep cleaning needs for the home, light pet care, vendor management, supplies ordering, and inventory, picking up mail, and collaborating with the family to maintain the general schedule.

 

 

This is a full-time live-out position as a hybrid family assistant and nanny. Flexibility to work around schedule changes and travel will be appreciated. The family is offering $25 to $35/hour as well as a healthcare stipend, generous paid vacation days and sick days. They hope to find a candidate to join their team by the end of January 2019.

 

This position is open to all Adventure Nannies and Magnolia Agency candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license and passport. This family is prioritizing local candidates at this time.
