For aupairs


To be a great au pair is all about your personality! You do not need to have any special education or qualification but you must love children and enjoy working with them! You have to provide the ‘I CAN DO” attitude, respect your host family’s household rules and live up to their expectations. Most duties can be learned, but your approach is what really matters.

Most families want someone who is friendly and will fit in with the family. The ideal person who is happy to help where needed and who performs tasks without being asked more than once. If you are willing to work hard and be flexible, and have fun at the same time you will have a fantastic au pair experience!
