Our Au Pair Mate programme is available only in our licensed regions and designed for busy families with children over five years old.

Whether it’s playing soccer, riding horses, teaching another language or supporting your children in their daily life – we have a range of au pairs who will suit your family needs and become a great role model to your children. Our friendly team of Placement Managers will work with you to find your perfect match!

  • A complete online application
  • A quick chat with one of our lovely Placement Managers

  • Police check forms for all adults in the home (we will process these for you)
