Who are we?

Ducks in a Row is a professional home organising service that cultivates joy in residential homeowners, renters, and businesses by decluttering & organising their spaces. At Ducks in a Row, we bring our values of passion, creativity, patience, and fun to everything we do.
  • Passion – Enthusiasm and excitement towards organising & decluttering.
  • Patience – Imagination and original ideas to improve everything we do.
  • Creativity – An openness and empathy towards our clients.
  • Fun – Enjoyment, amusement, and light-heartedness.

About the Role

The Assistant Organiser role is a pathway to becoming a leader at Ducks in a Row. Our assistants move into leading their own sessions in as little as 3-6 months. To be a great organiser, you’ll need to have a knack for the neat, tidy and organised. Good time management and interpersonal skills will be essential, as will the ability to remain cool-headed under pressure and in areas of clutter.

Our assistant organisers have the following responsibilities:

  • Support to your assigned Lead Organiser
  • Follow the decluttering & organising D.R.E.S.S Code Formula
  • Assemble furniture required for the client
  • Assist with shopping, pickups, drop-offs, donations, and/or returns
  • Contribute to decisions made regarding how the space will be organised
  • Attend training in person or virtually

Our assistant organisers are:

  • Calm, caring, and proactive
  • Model a positive, solution-focused team culture
  • Empathetic, compassionate and non-judgmental
  • Have strong ethical values
  • Very patient
  • Energetic, enthusiastic, and friendly

Our assistant organisers have the following skills:

  • Experienced communicator with the ability to confidently and professionally interact with clients
  • Problem solver with excellent time management
  • Excellent attention to detail and a great ability to multitask
  • Knack for styling & a creative mind
  • Ability to pivot and change direction as required


  • Create beauty & order – If you have always been told you have a “good eye” or a “flair” for making things work efficiently, as well as look good, your talent will have a home in this career.
  • No experience necessary – Organising experience is a bonus but not essential, we provide all the relevant training you need to be an excellent organiser. All you need is a love of decluttering & organising.
  • We care about your growth – Ongoing support and training both on the job and online, quarterly reviews, and continued opportunities for those who wish to make organising their career.
  • Team events – Monthly team events to get to know your fellow organisers, have fun, and share stories.


  • Valid Drivers License
  • Registered Vehicle
  • Willing to drive 1 – 1.5 hours to the client’s home
  • Mobile Phone

Physical Demands:

It’s pretty much a given if you’re working as a home organiser that you will be on your feet for most of the day. You may also need to lift heavy objects from time to time. So, it’s important to be physically fit. While you’re not expected to be a super athlete by any means, you do need to have a moderate level of fitness so you can keep up with the fast-paced nature of the job.

Technology Requirements:

  • Basic computer skills
  • Email communication skills

System Knowledge – Not required but definitely a bonus!:

  • Dubsado
  • Canva
  • Google Sheets
  • HubDoc
