Try to apply at least three months prior to your desired start date (early applications are encouraged). For later submissions contact us. We'll review your application and reach out within a couple of business days to set up a video call and discuss the next steps.
Note: If you'd like to arrive any time before the end of August 2018, we can place you quickly. We have a lot of families seeking to host an au pair starting this summer.
2. Match with Host Families
Once we've sent your application abroad, you’ll have an opportunity to connect with potential host families over email and/or video chat to make sure that you're both happy with the match. You'll have access to interviewing tips to guide the conversation. It typically takes a few weeks to match with a host family.
Once a match is confirmed, we’ll provide information on applying for your visa, booking flights, purchasing insurance, and preparing to travel. We'll also send you some fun resources on life as an au pair in New Zealand.
Placements last between 6 and 12 months.
