Ready for your adventure?

Make your Au pair experience easy and smooth with Bigsibs!

Become an Au pair and enjoy your stay

Becoming an Au pair is a good time to live in a foreign country, learn the local language and have firsthand experience of the culture of the country hosting you.

You also get to mingle with people from other cultures, enjoy and learn from their diversities and personalities while being paid by a Host family for assisting in the management of their home while staying with them for an agreed period of time.

What exactly an au pair is?

An Au pair is an individual between the ages of 18 and 30, who is single and without children, and travels to a foreign country for a specified period of time to live with a Host family that will offer him free accommodation and regular pocket money for his assistance in managing the Host family’s home.

Where would you like to be an au pair?

There are multiple countries hosting Au pairs. If you can’t find your desired destination, take a look at the full list of available host countries using our Country Check.

Bigsibs' Code of Conduct

To manage your search at AuPairWorld in the best possible way and to quickly find a suitable au pair, it’s helpful to follow a few simple rules:

  • Answer your messages. The search function only works when everyone knows what their current status really is. If certain au pairs are out of the question for you, then promptly decline their offers. If you have received too many applications, then you can temporarily hide your profile in the search results so that you can deal with the applications that you’ve already received.
  • If you receive a negative reply from an au pair, please don’t take it personally. Generally, nothing is to be gained by sending further messages after you’ve received a rejection. Instead, continue your search and contact other suitable au pairs.
  • Be honest in communicating with au pairs. Are there certain situations or habits in your family that a future au pair needs to be aware of? Do your children have allergies, for example? Only by being honest is it possible to avoid problems and misunderstandings during the au pair stay.
  • When you have found an au pair, remember to inform your other current messaging partners and to deactivate your profile.
  • Follow through on your commitments. Your future au pair is relying on that and may very well be making arrangements and paying for the relevant costs. If your plans do change, then please contact your planned au pair immediately.
