2014 is here!

< Back

Hello world!

Here at Equipeople Au Pairs we have been so lucky to have had a long Christmas and New Year’s break, but are secretly quite pleased to be back in the office away from all the Christmas pudding, chocolates and tins of biscuits!

It is all go here again, we have received and are placing our spring students and Au Pairs and have just got in “the Austrians” for the summer. Every year we place a large group of agricultural students from Austria in all types of placements over the summer, they work on farms, in agro-tourism placements and of course as Au Pairs. In addition to this, we have had a lot of interest from new French agricultural colleges for 2014 and are targetting Finland and Norway as well.

Equipeople Au Pairs is going really well and both hosts and students are enjoying the benefits of the extra services Equipeople offers our Au Pairs.
