Au Pair Assist

2017_Au Pair Assist

Already in New Zealand and looking for a short-term au pair job? On the Au Pair Assist programme we can link you with a host family looking for an au pair to join them immediately. You'll work with at least one child under five and receive all the benefits of our long-term educational programmes. That means you'll have support from a fully qualified early childhood education teacher and have access to our weekly playgroups, outings and childcare training workshops. Our Au Pair Assist programme is a great way to find short-term work if you're already in New Zealand, but if you're looking for something a bit more permanent our Au Pair 123 programme could be right for you. Au Pair Assist is ideal for enthusiastic working travellers who want a rewarding short-term job before continuing on their travels.
