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.

Most of our positions are live-in positions where the employer provides room and board in addition to pocket money or salary.
