Au Pair Jobs Abroad

Work Your Way Around the World

"Au pairing (literally “living on equal terms”) provides single women and sometimes men over 18 and normally under 27 the chance to study a language and culture while living as part of a family abroad. The demand for live-in childcare is huge, especially for young women."  Susan Griffith, author of the classic book "Work Your Way Around the World."

 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.

Millennium Au Pairs & Nannies, www.millenniumaupairs.co.uk, recruits au pairs, and nannies for placement with UK families and employers.
