Jane of All Trades for wonderful family in Santa Barbara

09/29/2015 | | |

We have the most incredible family that is looking for their go to person to help nourish and manage their home. You should be an excellent chef who is also happy to run errands, coordinate with the other staff, pick up the elementary aged kids from school if the nanny is elsewhere and generally be a happy person who loves to serve! This is an incredible opportunity to join a family who respects and appreciates their staff. One of their housekeepers has been with them for over a decade and that kind of loyalty is what they are looking for. There might be minimal travel to other properties but you will mostly be based in Santa Barbara. The ideal person will be polite, respectful, a self-starter, polished and service oriented. It is imperative that you have worked in a traditionally staffed home for at least 5-10 years, have excellent references that will vouch for your culinary talents and organizational skills, tech savvy capabilities and flexible mindset. Must love dogs! They have a few adorable and friendly furry friends who you will help walk and take to the vet. Most weeks the schedule will be Tuesday-Saturday but you will be flexible to accommodate the family’s travel and social schedules. When it comes to the kitchen, you will in charge of stocking the fridge, keeping the pantry tidy and making delicious farm fare California cuisine. Family favorites run the gamut but mostly grains, heirloom tomatoes, burrata, seasonal salads and grilled fish. Having a team player mentality is essential to succeeding in this family!

Salary is dependent on your experience. We are looking for the best out there!
