Job Description

Private family in Maplewood, New Jersey is in search of a Housekeeperto work in their home; Monday through Friday from 9:30AM to 6:30PM (with flexibility).
The Ideal Candidate: "Must have good hygiene - we are huge hand washers and take our shoes off. I practice safe food prep (meats only on one surface, then disinfect all surfaces immediately after) and safe cleaning protocol (I do not use the same cloth to clean surfaces as I do to clean the toilet). We need someone to be a second-me, to take over the household responsibilities and cleaning that I normally handle.

Daily cleaning, vacuuming, dishes, making beds, laundry, daily wipe down of bathrooms and kitchen, dusting, sweeping outside when necessary. Seasonal organization and purging of items/toys. Grocery shopping, errands, Target, UPS, etc. Unpacking and organizing store bought items. Meal prep, cooking, keeping fridge and freezer organized. Working with our menu planning, following recipes. Helping with our oldest kid when he comes home from school when/if our babysitter isn't available. Feed cats and turtle when needed. We need someone to learn and run our household as well as us - or better, better would be a dream. Our work schedules have increased and we can't juggle everything. We are trying to focus on work and our kids during this time and very much need someone who can manage the everyday tasks that are crucially important and a full-time job."
What Works Best for Family: A kind, trustworthy and thorough person who takes pride in their job. Someone who can take direction and be okay with doing something in a specific way; and also offer suggestions of how to do something better. Anticipate needs and prepare the house for success; ie: Motrin running low, get some/food staples running low, get some/crib sheets aren't on crib because of a pee-thru and we haven't had time to put them on, please put them back on. Someone who can take the lead on knowing what the house needs to function. Must be OK with a work-at-home family.Mom & dadwork from home most of the time. Efficiency is key. Dependability and positive energy are a must. Must like cats and be okay feeding them. When the family travels out of town, be either open to traveling with or taking care of the house and pets (two cats and a turtle) while they are away. Please be able to adapt to our household and our energy. No heavy perfumes or lotions, please.
Requested Duration: If they work out, as long as possible. A few years minimum.
