Making Contact with Nannies or Au Pairs is Easy!
When you find someone you like, simply click "Add to Favourites". She will then receive an automatic email telling her that you are interested in her. This email has a link to your profile, but does not have your email address. She will be able to click on your profile and if she likes you too, she can add you to her Favourites List. You will get an email telling you this.
If you are a Premium Family Member, you will be able to see her contact details and can email her directly.
Further Information and Advice
The information written on profiles is very helpful, but it’s natural that you will have questions for them. At first, a new au pair or nanny will be nervous. They will probably worry about their ability to write in your language, if they are from another country. Try to put their mind at rest and be friendly in your first email to them. If they will one day be your new au pair or nanny, it is likely that you will exchange several emails, and that you will speak on the phone a few times, before you make your final decision.
We recommend that as the communication between you develops, you are very open about what you want. Do not be worried about asking the difficult questions. Welcoming someone into your home to look after your children is a big decision. It is perfectly understandable that you will want to find out as much as you feel necessary about each candidate.
The newaupair.com website will soon have an advice section, where families can share their experience with each other. Some of the newaupair.com team are members of this site, and will share their own experiences of employing au pairs, but will also welcome advice from more experienced Members!
In the meantime, if you have some helpful advice to share with other families, please send it to us, and we will publish it on this page. Unfortunately, we can’t reply personally to every email, or we would have to employ many more people!
Good luck, and don’t forget to tell us how you get on!
The newaupair.com team.
