How to apply – Au Pairs


We work through a number of partner agencies throughout the world. If you are interested in applying to be an Equipeople Au Pair, give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will be happy to refer you on to our partner nearest to you.

Due to Governmental restrictions, we can only accept European Nationals or Au Pairs that are eligible for a working holiday visa on the Equipeople Au Pair programme.

Should your country be one of the countries that are eligible for a working holiday visa, then we would also love to welcome you onto our Au Pair programme. We cannot arrange visas or work permits; you must contact your relevant embassy. For more information, please follow the links below, or view on the Department of Foreign Affairs website:
