Hiring a Domestic Engineer

 

Domestic engineers are hired by families to perform a multitude of tasks in and around private home settings. Their responsibilities include: housekeeping, organizing, tidying up homes, performing household chores, cooking, managing budgets, and providing childcare. In some cases, they are also responsible for garden maintenance and taking care of household pets. The modern domestic engineer fills several roles in the American home. The career is expected to grow by 2% and produce more than 8,000 job opportunities across the U.S. in the next decade. Domestic engineers earn an average salary of $25,450 per year, and much more if their employer is hoping to retain them as an employee long term. With the right experience, they can go on to hold office manager posts.

Responsibilities

Owing to the nature of their responsibilities, domestic engineers are increasingly becoming an integral part of American households. They perform a variety of duties and tasks, depending on the age and needs of the children in the family as well as the size of the home. They work hand in hand with the family to develop and design a domestic duty and childcare schedule. One of the primary responsibilities of the domestic engineer is to be a nanny for the children of the family that employs them. They perform childcare duties including: helping with schoolwork, teaching life skills, engaging the children in age-appropriate activities, and transporting them to and from school and other locations. Domestic engineers are also responsible for doing laundry, keeping the house clean and safe, ensuring that household appliances are fully functional, and facilitating repairs or replacements in case of malfunctions. Domestic engineers are also required to design menus according to dietary restrictions, cook meals, prepare lunches for children to take to school, or spouses to take to work, and serve meals on time. Apart from this, they play a crucial role in balancing the family’s budget, documenting expenses such as children’s allowances or tracking spending for household expenses like groceries and toiletries, household and cleaning supplies, etc. They are often required to use many different tools in their daily routines to help them better manage their duties. 

Key competencies needed

Applicants to the post should have a high school diploma or GED. In addition, they should have a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record. One of the critical competencies required to succeed as a domestic engineer is proficiency in providing childcare. An accredited qualification in childcare can be an added advantage. Employers generally seek extensive experience in similar roles with a demonstrated history of organizational, time management, and budgeting skills, and considerable knowledge of housekeeping practices. Moreover, potential hires should have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and be flexible to work irregular hours, including nights, weekends, and public holidays. It’s also helpful for applicants to know first aid and CPR in case an emergency arises. Since child-rearing is one of the key duties, is it essential for domestic engineers to be patient and have high levels of stamina. A competent and successful domestic engineer will be able to create a well-managed and pleasant home environment through dedication and expertise.
