Historic Getaways, LLC is a specialty development company that saves blighted historic urban core properties from demolition and restores their original NOLA architectural charm. We renovate about 6 properties per year and presently have 5 projects in various states of completion or pre-development. We are a dynamic, rapidly-growing company that is seeking a highly organized, self-sufficient, confident individual that can thrive in a fast-paced environment of organized chaos (just being honest). We are seeking an assistant to the owner of Historic Getaways, who currently manages all aspects of the construction and renovations. This position would be responsible for helping to coordinate work crews, manage the purchasing of materials and the scheduling of deliveries and installations. The assistant would be responsible to oversee site construction (not neccessarily manage it) but to make sure people and materials show up when they are supposed to. You will need to be highly organized, have a smart phone and a laptop, and have BASIC knowledge of construction or a desire and ability to learn on your feet. While we do have an office, much of our work will be on site and in nearby coffee shops. Be prepared to have a notebook or clip board with check lists and timelines, make lots of calls, handle lots of paperwork, run to city hall a lot, handle and organize receipts, and help keep our dynamic, friendly, fun, creative, Harvard and MIT educated ADHD founder on track.

You must be willing to learn on your feet, demonstrate creative problem solving, not be shy, speak up or step in when you think something is going wrong.

A background in Urban Planning, Architecture, Construction, Design, and/or Accounting a bonus but not required.

Must know microsoft excel/work (or google equiivalents), be web and tech savvy, have your own transportation (a truck a plus).

Pay commensurate with ability but starting pay approximately $10/hr with lots of room for increase. 20-40 hrs a week depending on your availability. If you are just starting your career out or are a student, we are open to bringing you on as a paid intern.

Please submit your resume along with a statement of interest to
