Join our Team!

MRDF is hiring a maintenance worker/housekeeping couple to live and work at our facility in Key Largo! Because we work with children, candidates must provide references and pass background checks including Level II fingerprinting checks.   We have very low turnover, so this must be a pretty cool place to work! We also have a small staff, so candidates must be team players and willing to pitch in where needed.

Candidates must like being around children, even if you don’t work directly with them.   The facility includes 5 boats, which are maintained primarily by our Lead Captain but help may occasionally be required, a large dorm/classroom/office building, campus grounds, a cafeteria/dining hall, and various outbuildings.    We have a positive, upbeat work environment – come join our team!

Maintenance job is full time (40 hours a week) and requires general maintenance skills, including carpentry, plumbing, and electrical. The right candidate is detail oriented, has organizational skills to manage work load, including purchasing supplies, and self-motivated.

Housekeeping job is part time (32 - 35 hours per week) and requires general cleaning skills (bathrooms, dorm rooms, offices). This position also requires supervisory skills such as scheduling self and one other housekeeper to meet program needs, and the right candidate is self-motivated and has the organizational skills to manage work load, including purchasing supplies. English required; Spanish-English bilingual a plus but not required.

On-site housing is included in a newly renovated mobile home, which has 1 bedroom, 1 bath and and a washer/dryer. Utilities, including internet, are included.  Please note that onsite housing is part of the compensation package (value: $20K per year) and residence is required.  Duties include being on call 5 nights a week for any onsite maintenance issues (usually an air conditioner issue!), and 2 hours/week are allocated for any overnight calls. The entire facility is non-smoking; housing includes one parking space; and no pets are allowed.

Both positions are paid hourly.  In addition, benefits include paid vacation and sick time, paid holidays, company health insurance, and retirement contribution after one year.   Staff shirts provided. Hourly rate (between $12 - $14/hour) commensurate with experience. Position is open until filled; our target start date is October 2, 2019.  

To apply, please send your resume, including work history and references, to CEO Ginette Hughes at ginettehughes@mrdf.org. You are welcome to call 305-451-1139 X 203 if you have any questions.
