Looking for a quick and fun fill in position late around Thanksgiving? Staying in the city for the holiday? This could be the job for you!
A veteran SmartFamily is looking for a kind and engaging team player to offer some support in late November.

$25-28/hour gross + monthly metrocard
This is a super lovely and wonderful veteran Clinton Hill family with a very sweet and smart 5-year-old girl. The family is looking to meet new nannies asap and hire someone to start the beginning of November. they have been in our network for a long time and they are only parting ways with their long-time SmartSitter because she is moving. It is mutually a sad day, though they are so grateful for all she has done for them and the bond she has with their daughter.
Their ideal candidate is enthusiastic, engaging, and fun! An interest in music or theater is plus! Spanish speaking is another plus! The schedule is Monday through Friday, 3 PM - 7 PM, plus one evening or help on a weekend if possible.
It;s $25-28/hour gross for 23 hours/week guaranteed, plus a monthly metrocard if applicable! Apply today as it will begin in the weeks to come!
The family is looking someone energetic, enthusiastic, proactive, organized, bilingual in Spanish (a plus but not a requirement), someone musical, someone who plays an instrument or sings, and someone who can engage the little girl on her level. The little girl is timid and it's helpful if you're able to encourage her to do new and different things and help give her confidence.
And finally from one of their former SmartSitters:
"The best feedback I can give, is that they need someone who is down to earth, relatable, and authentic. Someone who is able to not only be friends with the girl (who can be a bit sensitive at times, though is super flexible, way more flexible than the average 5-year-old) and someone who can establish that they are essentially an extension of mom and dad.
The new sitter should have the ability to walk in, see the things that need to be done and get them done, without being asked to do it. Mom and dad really never ask me to do much beyond the job description, thought I know that they always appreciate if you’re able to execute certain tasks that make their lives easier. Nothing too complicated, but something like, if you know that they are running low on something in the house that the girl needs, write it down on the whiteboard in the kitchen or send a message into a group chat. Sometimes things can get overlooked because they’re both super busy, but they’re really on top of things.
(When the city is up and running more typically) This person should be transportation savvy, as we did a lot of commuting during the week and they should be comfortable with scheduling playdates for the girl on her days off from an activity (which vary during each semester).
The only other thing that I would note, is that it’s incredibly important that the new sitter stay up to date on girl's calendar of events/school calendar and be as flexible as possible without stretching themselves too thin (as mom and dad would not want that at all). Sometimes days off can be forgotten about and questions on availability may not be discussed until a day or two beforehand. If the new sitter can not cover a full day or if there is any conflict that would affect the sitters ability to provide coverage during days off (school vacations, PTC days where they have a full day off on Fridays, etc.) it would be best to let them know as far in advanced as possible and not wait until they bring it up; COMMUNICATION and staying on top of things is key. As I said before, they are both super busy and sometimes, depending on the month, the sitter will be interacting primarily with one parent over the other. It’s best that they’re as comfortable with coming to both parents with any concerns as quickly as they can so that something can be figured out. There is always a backup plan that they can execute if the sitter gives them enough time and they are very communicative.
I’m sure I’m missing some things, but I’m sure I will pass along a guide for the new sitter in terms of all the ins and outs of the position. The new sitter should be ready to enter a tribe of people, beyond mom and dad, who are always more than happy to help out and are all truly incredible. They are a wonderful family!"
Monday through Thursday, 2:45 PM - 7 PM, and Friday, 12-6 or 7 PM. If you are flexible for full days on holidays, this is a big plus.
The family can guarantee 23 hours/week.
