Posted 4 years ago

Our private client in Palm Beach, Florida is seeking a Household Personal Assistant – Martha Stewart type for a positoin which travels! An exceptional home organizer/administrator who has a keen eye for details to help keep their busy estate synchronized, organized and feeling like home for their family.

This Household Personal Assistant position is for someone who understands the dynamics of a fully staffed home and is willing to lend domestic support where needed; they understand the “behind the scenes” aspects that take place in a large home to contribute to a seamless and peaceful environment for the homeowners. Their role on the team will be to partner with all household staff including their assistants, housekeepers, project managers, grounds keepers, the House Manager, vendors, and family members.

What you will be doing:
This role will encompass domestic duties (packing/unpacking, ordering supplies, errands, light meal assistance) team communication, administrative functions (household manuals, spreadsheets, inventories, etc.), packing and unpacking, organization of the home, scheduling, beautifying and other various support needs as they arise; strategy and continuity in streamlining the lifestyles of the family as they transition between homes across the US and worldwide.

While the majority of this position will be based out of their home office, vendor invoicing and bill pay, wardrobe support and clothing care, special research projects, and supply sourcing / procurement will be required, among other items in support of the family.

Essential to the Job:

• Responsibility – the ability to take on tasks both single-handedly as well as in synergy with the other household staff
• Communication – as an ambassador to the family, all relationships should be a best reflection of the clients; from troubleshooting with vendors, to researching solutions or welcoming guests, every interaction should be carried with discernibility, unobtrusiveness, conviction and ease
• Understanding of Smart-Home Automation – the client’s largest-scale residence operates fully on a Savant-based system; understanding this system is highly preferred, and experience with homes on similar systems will provide a leg-up when technical issues arise
• Connection & Heart – service is both central and essential to this role. The right candidate should feel connected to their mission of support and teamwork as they work toward outcomes led by the family and the House Manager.
• Commitment – this role is for someone who is willing to play full-out each day; someone who is dedicated and flexible as scheduling needs outside an 8-5 Mon-Fri schedule may be required at times.
• Comfort in Change – no two days in this role are alike, and scheduling for this position will often resemble the tides – at times calm and relaxed, and at others, with intensity and vigor. A roll-with-the-punches, fluid mentality will serve best, allowing the beauty of possibility in each day to take precedence over the need for predictability
• Travel – there will be the need for travel at a moments notice, so the ability to travel is MANDATORY!
