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.

No cleaning, only keeping the kitchen and your own areas in the house tidy and clean as well as tidying up after the child’s activities.

The family will pay for your flights to and from Germany as well as a return flight home on holiday midway through your stay (if you stay for more than 6 months). They will also pay for your language course and a public transportation card.

To apply, you must already be in the UK and have a pre-settled/settled status.

The duties include getting children ready for school in the morning, taking them to/from school and activities, entertaining children at home, and cooking children their meals. A cleaner is employed so you would only be asked to tidy up after yourself and the children, to do the children’s laundry, to load/unload the dishwasher, and ideally to vacuum occasionally.

The children are very energetic and active so the family is looking for an Au Pair who likes to stay active, go on outings, and play outdoors.

The benefits include a mobile phone with a monthly contribution towards calls/data and a return flight to your home country once per year. You will also have your own bike to use.

Au Pair

Location: Countryside near Kokkola, Finland

Hours: 25-30 per week

Gross salary/pocket money: Appr. 110-120 € per week (350 € net per month = 80 € net per week after tax)

Duration: 12 months

Language skills: Average to good English OR Finnish

Age of children: 9 months, 2 years, 4 years, 7 years and 9 years

Accommodation: Spacious bedroom with wifi

Description: A family living on a farm about 30 km outside of coastal town Kokkola, Finland. The parents work at home on the dairy farm and need an extra pair of hands to help with their five children. The two eldest children attend school and the youngest three children are cared for at home.

Your morning duties (7 am to 9 am) consist of a breakfast routine, tidying up the kitchen, and getting children dressed and ready for school. In the afternoon (4 pm to 7 pm) you would start by tidying the kitchen after the family meal and then would spend time playing with the children at home, in the fenced play area in the garden, or in the nearby park. The family will invite you along to the children’s activities, such as sports events or choir, and the family activities, such as spending time at their cabin or on holiday in the nearby beach resort.

As the children are so young, some experience with babies and toddlers would be ideal, although the parents will of course guide you through the routine in the first few weeks. There is no need to drive a car for work purposes but it would be useful if you drive as they do live in a country location. You are welcome to borrow one of their cars on your time off if you would like to explore the area or meet people in nearby Kokkola. There is a bus stop less than five minutes walk from home and the parents are also happy to drive you occasionally if you don’t drive.

The family lives in a large, modern house where you’ll have your own spacious room with a single bed, sofa, desk, wifi to use and they are happy to provide you with a TV also. They will also pay for your language course as well as your flight home if you stay for the agreed 12 months. This family has previously hosted an Au Pair for nearly two years and will welcome you to become a part of their family!

Au Pair

Duration: 6-12 months

Language skills: Average to good English OR Finnish

Description: A single-parent family living in the small town of Masku, near the beautiful coastal city of Turku. A lovely, welcoming multi-cultural family that is open to Au Pair of any nationality or culture.

Your working days and hours will vary depending on mum’s shift work. Duties consist mostly of caring for the youngest child, ensuring the eldest child will get ready for school on time and does their homework, serving children pre-cooked meals, taking them to the nursery or after-school activities, and assisting mum in keeping the house tidy and clean. A confident driver is required as winter conditions in Finland are snowy and icy.

The ideal Au Pair is someone who is trustworthy, active, and has a calm personality who is able to be firm with the children when necessary. The eldest child has ADHD but is a happy, social and non-aggressive child who loves sports and hanging out with friends. The youngest is an easy child who is friendly, polite, kind, and loves ballet and ice skating.
