General information about our positions

Please note that this is only a small selection of our available positions and the positions change weekly. Once you have sent us your application form, we will be able to tell you exactly what positions we have that would suit you.

In addition, we also have hundreds of positions through our partner agencies. For Au Pairs, there are always positions in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Australia, and China. For Nannies, we have dozens of positions all over the world, in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Please note that you must either be an EU passport holder or have a visa for the country you wish to work in to apply for our positions! We cannot help with the visa process for non-EU nationalities.

Most of our positions are live-in positions where the employer provides room and board in addition to pocket money or salary. The minimum requirement for the accommodation is a bedroom but sometimes the employer offers several rooms on a different floor or a flat with a private entrance. We have live-out positions for nannies and governesses (teachers) only. Au Pair positions are always live in as it is a condition of this cultural exchange programme.
