Thursday – Monday, 10 AM – 8 PM with NY summer travel

Private Star Island family seeks a meticulous, hard working, dedicated and seasoned Executive Housekeeper to assist with the full time daily cleaning, care, laundry, service and management of their primary 16,000 sqft. Miami home. The position consists of a 5-day flexible workweek, roughly 10:00am – 8:00pm, Thursday through Monday, with a need for overriding flexibility.

The ideal candidate must have ample experience working in a private residence with exceptional attention to detail, understanding of full-range Housekeeping & Laundry duties, attention to special surfaces and meticulously maintained interiors, and a drive to succeed at all costs. No childcare is required, however, there are four children in-residence (all of whom speak/are learning Spanish,) so the ideal candidate must be comfortable working in a home with children and additional childcare staff. Spanish is a tremendous plus for not only the children, but for dealing with all local vendors, contractors and additional household staff.

Though FL is the primary residence for the youthful family of six, they do travel frequently to their additional residences in New York City and the Hamptons, where travel will be asked of the candidate for the months of July and August. While traveling, private live-in accommodations will be supplied. The ideal candidate will have ties to NY so while traveling, he/she feels comfortable and familiar.

• Assisting with feeding and walking the family’s small dog, as well as feeding the family’s fish
• Spending overnights in the residence on special occasions if the family is out late; a private room and bath will always be provided
• Providing formal service for special events, holidays and family gatherings, as needed
• Additional Housekeeping, Laundry and Household Management-related tasks as needed and per request

• Strong command of English language and communication skills, both written and verbal; Spanish a STRONG plus
• Excellent references required from both current and previous employers
• Minimum 3 – 5+ years related experience working in a formal / semi-formal private home in a similar role(s)
• Experience with museum quality cleaning and care for: antiques, silver, fine art, wood, granite, marble, etc.
• MUST have prior experience using organic cleaning agents and solvents; residence is primarily a chemical-free home
