[Easemakers Podcast E29] Hybrid roles in private service: the other perspective from a household staffing agency

Let's talk about a hot topic: hybrid roles in household staffing. In a new episode of the Easemakers Podcast, PSP-turned-recruiter Jenni Vaughan shares the other side of the story.

By Kristin Twiford

Hybrid roles are a hot topic in the private service industry. Every week, household staffing agencies post new job descriptions for nanny-family assistants, house manager-chefs, etc. Some seem reasonable, and others leave private service professionals shaking their heads, wondering how any one person could be expected to take on so much work.

So, why are we seeing an increase in demand for hybrid positions in private service? Why are principals looking to hire for hybrid roles in their households, and what’s the role of household staffing agencies in this trend? Ask a recruiter, and the answers might surprise you.

This week on the Easemakers Podcast, Jenni Vaughan shares her take on hybrid roles in the private service industry.

After spending 15 years in private service, Jenni joined Domestic Match as a recruiter, and today serves as the domestic staffing agency’s Estate Staffing Director. In this conversation, she shares her take on hybrid roles, and what private service professionals should know about what goes on behind the scenes.

Tune in to hear:

  • Why some principals want to hire for hybrid roles in their households
  • Why she believes hybrid roles aren’t a threat to traditional roles (because those aren’t going anywhere)
  • What candidates should know about the other side of the process

This conversation builds on a panel from the Estate Management Conference, which is available as a recording to Estate Management Network pro members at estatenetwork.org.
