In August, life handed me a job description for the important role I’ve been neglecting since I got married 6 years ago: Chief Home Operations Manager (CHOM).

Congratulations! Upon marriage, you filled a part-time position for Chief Home Operations Manager averaging 30 hours per week, including evening and weekend hours as needed. Schedule is flexible based on other pressing needs and hours required may fluctuate depending on life circumstances.

The apartment seeks an energetic, motivated individual who can work well alone, is adept at managing household duties, and does not mind delegating tasks to a significant other. Candidate is a self-starter who should function well in a quiet environment without children. Detail-oriented is a plus. Primary responsibilities of the position will be:

  • Caretaking of significant other as circumstances require
  • Cleaning the bathroom sink, toilet, and shower
  • Vacuuming the carpet
  • Swiffering the bathroom and kitchen tile floors
  • Washing dishes and putting clean ones away
  • Wiping down the kitchen countertops
  • Dusting
  • Taking out the trash and recycling
  • Overseeing the washing, drying, and folding of laundry
  • Organizing out-of-place items on surfaces or other disorganized items
  • Running errands outside of the household as required such as refilling stock of perishable and non-perishable groceries

Secondary activities include:

  • Creating edible meals (original, appetizing, or enticing are optional)
  • Scheduling of appointments and other activities
  • Managing the household budget including balancing checkbooks, paying bills, overseeing responsible spending, and quarterly reviews
  • Administration of insurance and medical claims
  • Adept negotiation with vendors to secure lower costs on utilities, credit cards, or other other services
  • Sifting through postal mail to determine junk and distribute important documents
  • Occasional reorganization of closets and cabinets to make sure all items are accessible, active, and not expired
  • Maintaining an pictorial archive of memorable moments

High school degree desired. BA or BS preferred. MA or PhD is ideal. 18 years life experience required; compassionate emotions, computer skills, and driving ability essential. Prior experience accomplishing household chores, using a calendar, reconciling a checkbook, and interest in home organization a plus. Good photography skills optional; will train on the job.

Wage begins at $0, regardless of experience. No reimbursement for travel. However, many hugs, kisses, and thanks are offered daily for a reward.

Affirmative Action Employer
