Looking for a full time personal assistant in Manhattan to help primarily with home organization, errands, travel and social arrangements including restaurant reservations.
You must be responsive to requests, resourceful, and ideally well connected in terms of dinner reservations/tickets to events etc.
Ideally you are excellent at organizing storage, home office, home library and will be a self-starter with regards to organization projects, and have suggestions on how to improve things around the home/office to make things easier.
Light book keeping involved, payment of household bills and tracking your own expenses.
Work will also involve keeping apartment well stocked with staple items, ordering/shopping for groceries as needed, making arrangements for gifts and ordering other items for the home (furniture, shelving).
Should be very familiar with and comfortable booking travel, creating and providing itinerary, etc.
Should be very comfortable with research and computers and also some technology maintenance (stereos, cameras etc).

Should be excellent with providing flawless support and should be comfortable with being on call to make reservations and promptly respond to requests as necessary.  Please have good taste, patience, a positive demeanor, and be able to exercise discretion in this position.

We are looking for someone with at least 2-3 years of relevant experience, and please be able to commit to this position for at least a year, starting immediately.

You can work from home if you would like but also there will be many things that need to be taken care of around the apartment in addition to errands to run, so depending on the project/task, it is fairly flexible.

If you think this sounds like the job for you, please send us a brief cover letter outlining your skills and interest in this position and most relevant previous experience (in 1-2 paragraphs), SALARY EXPECTATION, your resume as well as 2 - 3 references whom we will be calling if you seem like a good fit!
