General Scope
Scheduling
We don’t typically need help with any work-related scheduling (outside of some travel), but all child-related scheduling, repair people, personal care, doctors, personal travel, and all things that fall outside of work. This includes ongoing communication and interaction with family members, our nanny, housekeeper, guests, friends, etc.

Groceries / Food
Inventory lists, regular ordering and grocery shopping, arrangement with anyone cooking or sporadic dinner parties, birthdays, events, etc. Regular availability for quick pickups and larger shops – or coordination of Instacart, etc. Takeout pickup, prescription pickups, dry cleaning, etc General knowledge of health and nutrition and plants a huge plus.

Home / Land + Car Maintenance / Supplies
Inventory lists and monthly checking, regular updating of regular items, scheduling and managing repair people, car maintenance and repairs, tracking of repair and service cadence, DMV renewals, insurance renewals, meeting them on site, research regular Amazon ordering as things come up throughout the day – as we develop the land further, this may include scheduling with landscaping, gardener, etc. and the documentation

Finances / Donations
Basic tracking of bills, expenses, reporting, returns, auditing for wrongful charges, etc. Maintaining all accounts / passwords in 1Password and worksheets for tracking all ongoing expenses to gain basic visibility into monthly expenditure.

Ordering / Shipping / Returns / Gifting
Managing ordering, Amazon-ing, gifting, returning, researching, getting special / customized gifts made, samples for my work, holiday / birthday tracking.

Organization / Reporting / Weekly Meetings
If you had to take a few weeks off, everything I need to know would be in neatly and precisely organized Google Sheets for reference. This means regular upkeep of vendors, accounts, open action items, regularly scheduled follow ups, inventory audits, etc. This also includes a regular weekly report and clear agendas for our calls, times to connect so we use time efficiently and everything feels organized – sometimes these have to happen later at night or in transit given work schedules.

On Call / Flexibility
Time needs shapeshift week to week General availability for last-minute, emergencies and a ‘things always come up’ approach—within reason and clear boundaries, but with the understanding that you are the first call.

Little Humans
While this is not a nanny position, the awareness of being around children, the kindness, the language, safety and the modeling is important. Childcare experience, a huge plus.

Safety
In Topanga, the understanding and working knowledge of fire warnings and flags is critical. Regular monitoring of TCEP and communication with our family – the maintenance of regular safety checks, fire sprinkler testing, communication of emergency plans, etc.
