Want to be an Au Pair...?

Girls and Boys aged 18 – 27 are allowed into the United Kingdom under the HOME OFFICE Au Pair scheme.
They do not receive a wage, but they are given pocket money to cover their expenses and help they give a Host Family with
childcare and light housework.
This ranges from minimum £70-90 per week, depending on the number of hours worked.
Which are normally from 25 – 35 hours per week. This covers Girls and Boys from all EU countries.

At the moment no other countries are accepted by the HOME OFFICE to be Au Pair in the United Kingdom.

Therefore unless you have EU nationality please do not complete our on-line Application Form.

    • Au Pairs must have their own bedroom and live as part of the family
    • They have full board
    • Be encouraged to attend a language class
    • Have 2 full days free per week
Au Pair with child


Au Pairs are encouraged to attend language school, and this is normally twice a week, but each school has different hours per week. Although a lot of language schools have been offering free classes, this is due to change in September 2007, when schools will normally charge a fee each term. Although this is generally the responsibility of the Au Pair, some Host Families help towards the language school.
