Some families need assistance with a multitude of tasks related to their household and general family needs, but do not have the time to execute, oversee, or delegate duties as needed. If this situation sounds familiar to you, you might be in need of a house manager. Motherhood Center placement specialists work with families in and around the Houston area to help to match them with experienced house managers who can help to keep the day-to-day operations of a home running smoothly and efficiently so they can focus their time on other tasks and/or have more quality time to spend with their family. Our placement specialists help families to identify their needs and inform them of what they can expect from their house manager to lessen the chance of miscommunication between both parties.
The position of a house manager is new to the market and is evolving. The position orchestrates the responsibilities of household duties as well as the needs of the family itself. The duties can vary from family to family but can be defined into three categories:
1) A house manager with a focus on childcare who assists with household organization tasks.
2) A house manager with a focus on maintaining upkeep, maintenance, and organization of the home, and will likely not require childcare.
3) A house manager with a focus on the management of the household staff who will also coordinate the family’s activities, maintain their schedules, help plan vacations, maintain budgets, keep grocery shopping lists, and report to the homeowners any needed house maintenance while also coordinating the repairs. No childcare will be involved. Since each family has their own unique needs, it’s important to define what those needs are in order to find a qualified candidate to meet them.
