HOUSEKEEPER/HOUSE MANAGER FOR NYC APARTMENT

We are currently recruiting for a superstar Housekeeper with an exceptional eye for detail, strong work ethic and flexible, can-do attitude to manage a beautiful Upper East Side apartment for an UHNWI in NYC.  The ideal candidate will be incredibly organised and able to work autonomously, taking responsibility for the upkeep of this luxury property in the client’s absence, as well as providing seamless service to the principal when they are in residence.
 
The property has been finished to an extremely high specification so it is essential that you must have excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings and surfaces and have a good understanding of the use of appropriate cleaning products. Duties will include laundry and ironing, making beds, cleaning, and organisation of all areas in the apartment, as well as the care of artwork and other valuables.
 
Other duties will include liaising with tradesmen, vendors and suppliers, personal shopping and errand running, keeping track of household expenses and liaising with the principal’s EA, as well as some concierge duties such as making restaurant reservations etc. Having brilliant interpersonal and communication skills, as well as being a driver with a full, clean US driving license and living within a commutable distance from the Upper East Side are essential requirements for this role. A candidate who is also able to cook is highly desirable, but not essential.
 
When the principal is not in residence, the working schedule can be very flexible and a portion of the work can be done remotely, but great flexibility will be required when the principal is in residence, requiring you to be available at short notice. The principal is looking to appoint a switched on, well presented and professional candidate to remain with them long-term.

- Cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and entertainment areas
- Laundry and ironing, including caring for fine fabrics
- Managing stocks of cleaning products and groceries
- Maintaining inventories and managing the household budget
- Meeting and greeting any visitors and guests
- Liaising with suppliers, vendors, and tradesmen to oversee any maintenance works, installations etc. in the apartment
- Admin duties such as scheduling appointments, making restaurant reservations, booking taxi’s, diary management etc.
- Ideally preparing meals for the principal (not essential)
 
ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
- Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end household
- Good level of spoken English and eligibility to live in the USA
- Living locally and having your own private accommodation and reliable transport
- Full, clean US driving license
- Hardworking, dedicated, trustworthy and reliable
