We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) in Chestermere who are looking for an exceptional professional to take over some of our daily household activities. The ideal candidate may be a professional chef looking for regular clients, professional cleaner looking to expand duties for a regular client, or someone who simply has demonstrated household management skills and wants to work with us. Your skills and preferences can shape the expectations for this role. We currently have a regular cleaning service so your skills could complement or replace them (with more duties than just cleaning!). In short, we’re tired and need help! Responsibilities (negotiable): 1) Cleaning - full surface clean of a 3 level home @ 1100sq ft per level bi weekly - Tidying toys etc as needed - laundry weekly 2) Cooking - 2-3 dinners/week - meal planning for a household that includes 2 children with selective tastes. Meals typically need to be deconstructed to allow all members of the family to choose what they want on their plate. - no allergies - intentionally exposing family to varied foods and flavours ( tricky when factoring in the selective eating!) - cooking and cleanup - grocery shopping is not required… but we might be willing to pay for your time to shop for us weekly - you’re definitely welcome to eat with us at your preference! - we will be responsible for the costs of ingredients and will offer you a rough budget to use for meal planning 3) Household management - If you are a professionally experienced household manager, we would like to talk to you about other duties such as managing bills and emails, scheduling appointments and maintenance, coordinating calendars, etc. - if you’re interested in being paid to mow lawns, shovel, garden, detail vehicles, etc, we may be willing to pay for your time to do so! What we aren’t looking for: - a nanny - pickup/drop off of kids - a tutor - full time work Pay: Pay negotiable. Expecting to find the right candidate for $20-$50/ hour depending on duties and experience/education. Willing to pay salary or hourly. Candidates: - we are a immigrant-friendly and 2SLGBTQ+-friendly household. All interested candidates are welcome to connect. - if you speak another language, especially French, that’s a bonus! We speak French at home with our kids. - the ideal candidate is professional, confident, calm, and friendly - the ideal candidate knows how to “get it done” without much supervision. We really, really don’t want to micromanage your work! We are a set it and forget it kind of family. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions or inquiries. When doing so, please be sure to demonstrate your confidence, professionalism, and leadership in communications. So looking forward to meeting you!
