Au Pair Agencies
Interested in listing your agency here? Contact us!
An au pair agency can be used in circumstances where either the au pair or family feel they need to carry out additional checks on either party to give them additional peace of mind before the au pair position is agreed upon. Obviously, New Au Pair has a much bigger choice of au pairs than a small agency, and so many families use this site to find a person and then provide their details to an au pair agency to carry out these checks.
The au pair agency will process a complete application for both parties which can include an application form, an essay to describe the person, references, a medical report, and other checks. You can also be given the opportunity to interview the candidate over the telephone to discuss all aspects of their application further.
In the future, the list below will allow you to choose an au pair agency by country, although we will not endorse a particular company’s services over another’s. Their web site address and contact information will be provided, but it will be up to you to decide which au pair agency you wish to use.
PLEASE NOTE that, whilst most countries do not require you to use an au pair agency, the US does require families and au pairs to use one of the US Government’s designated agencies. This au pair agency can generally provide families with all the information they need about hiring an au pair in the US, visa formalities, and help families with the background checks and medical checks that are required. Details of this can be found on the Visa Requirements for the US page.
