We have a wonderful returning family in Prospect Heights looking for a few new caregivers to join their team. They are saying goodbye to their beloved SmartSitter after almost three years as she is pursuing a new career! They are looking for a morning and afternoon (see other position) sitter to help manage the days with their two adorable girls, 2 and 7. Their ideal candidate is warm, fun, creative, proactive, and easy going. Someone who can jump in and assist with the mornings to ensure they go smoothly is paramount! It's $25/hour gross for 15 hours/week. The position will begin as soon as March, with interviews taking place immediately.
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone warm, loving, proactive, fun, and experienced with these two ages groups is ideal. They are looking for someone who can keep the mornings running smoothly, and tackle any challenges head on and in an organized way. That said, organization, team work, communication, and an open and bright attitude is a must! While you may never work directly with the other SmartSItter, each one's actions (or lack of) affects the other. For meals, mom is more than happy to share with the new sitter the family's staples which are all really simple and easy to prepare. Finally, someone who is generally really happy and willing to jump in to help as needed and truly be a second hand to the parents who are busy and working FT is paramount!
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 7-10 AM. Flexibility to assist additionally for full days, or in the evenings and weekends.
