Step-by-Step Application Process through our website
Getting started with the Au Pair program takes five easy steps and we are there to help you – every step of the way.
1. Complete your online application
To complete it just register as Au pair to get started. Then you will receive an email with all details about the next steps. This application will ask about your childcare experience as well as other work and school experience. You’ll have the chance to talk about your hobbies, interests and talents. And of course, there will be the opportunity to write a letter to a future host family introducing yourself personally and share some pictures with them.
2. Sign up for an interview
Take the first step by signing up for a meeting today with our team. We will be in touch to discuss your childcare experience, answer your questions and confirm the details. The interview will include a detailed presentation on the programme as well as a chance for you to ask questions. Where possible, you will have the opportunity to hear from a former Au Pair. You might also be able to complete the required one-on-one interview with one of our representatives.
3. Being matched with a family
As soon as we have received your completed application, and officially accepted you onto the program our staff in Sydney will begin the search for your host family. While host families can view au pair profiles online, our local partners speak with all host families personally and oversees the matching process personally. We find that this individual touch provides the most successful matches.
Once a good match is made, the host family will then review your application and decide if they think you will fit in with what they need from an au pair. If they feel that your profile fits with their family, they will call or email you for a phone interview. After the phone interview, you and the family each get some time to decide if this is the right match for you. Once you have a mutually agreeable match, planning begins for your travel !
4. Visa and travel arrangements
We will send you the visa information and a welcome pack.
