A family in Kensington, just north of Berkeley / near Tilden Park is seeking an amazing Family Assistant to help with childcare and household tasks. They have two children, a girl aged 7 and a boy aged 10, who go to school nearby in El Cerrito (about 10 minutes away). Grandma also lives in the house in an in-law apartment. They have a large multi-generational family in close proximity (their sibling and niece and nephew live next door) so their ideal candidate would be friendly and comfortable with their big family.

They are seeking someone organized and outgoing who loves to cook and is detailed and punctual. Responsibilities include driving the children, keeping the house tidy and organized, running errands, meal planning and prep, and pitching in where needed.

Their ideal schedule is 35-40 hours per week, Monday – Thursday starting at 7:00 or 7:30 AM. They prefer someone who can be flexible and available for after hours or overnight babysitting on occasion, but this is not a requirement.

While their home is in Kensington, they are occasionally in Sonoma (about an hour away), where they often spend time in the summer and over school breaks. The ideal candidate would be willing to drive to Sonoma the days they are there (with additional commute time included in paid hours and a lot of flexibility on their part with your working hours while in Sonoma).
