 Au Pair Jobs in the United Kingdom

Note: The U.K. officially prohibits U.S. citizens from legally working in the U.K. as au pairs. You can enter the UK on a tourist visa, study, and work no more than 20 hours, but that puts a lot of burden on the host family as well as you, and student visas are not cheap. We can only hope that the laws will change in the future to allow US citizens to work as au pairs in the UK more easily.

Bunters Au Pairs and Nannies, www.aupairsnannies.com, places au pairs in London and across England. It is a family-run business with a long history and a member of The British Au Pair Agencies Association.

Happy Home Childcare, www.happyhomechildcare.co.uk, is an au pair program which allows you to learn English as a member of an English family.
