Professional and local couple to run home 6 story brownstone in NYC

01/23/2014 | | |

We need the best of the best to help run a 6-story estate in the east village. We are looking for a professional couple that understands etiquette, 5 star service and also doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty. The service part is really important to this single mother of two teenage boys, so you must be familiar with all aspects of running a home from top to bottom as well as setting a formal table for a fabulous dinner party attended by NY socialites.  

You should have at least 5 years experience working in a formal home. The ideal candidate would be a patient easy-going couple that is capable of wearing many hats:

–       Deep cleaning
–       Healthy cooking
–       Serving
–       Dinner cleanup
–       Flower arranging
–       Chauffer responsibilities (driving son to and from school)
–       Grocery shopping
–       General housekeeping (vacuuming, mopping, laundry, organizing)
–       Serving for formal monthly get-togethers
–       Dealing with all outside vendors (cable co, contractors, etc)
 
This is a very social family, with lots going on!!! There are people coming and going very often.  Must be social and amiable to this type of open-door environment.  Must be very proactive and take charge.  Must be able to know what needs to be done and do it, without a lot of direction.
Amazing opportunity to work for a lovely family!  Looking for the best of the best!  Salary up to 200k + benefits  + Apartment  (separate from the proprietor’s townhouse)
