At Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency, we place House Managers in both North and South Carolina. Our families require 3 years of experience in House Management, a professional resume, background/reference checks, and a valid driver’s license/vehicle. Candidates must also be CPR/First Aid certified before they start the position. Some of our nanny positions request help with house management tasks in addition to caring for children. Working in a Nanny/House Management job is a great way to gain experience in the industry.
A House Manager is a professional domestic employee, hired by a family to help manage their home or multiple homes, and personal assistant needs. The House Manager is responsible for taking care of daily tasks, and anticipating the needs of the home, to ensure the home is running efficiently. Families hiring a House Manager look to their House Manager to help make their lives easier, when they are not working, and help them take care of tasks they do not always have time to take care of.
