Have you considered becoming an au pair?
Want to learn a new language or improve a language you are learning? By working as an au pair you can be an extra pair of hands for a family; it is a great opportunity to really experience a new culture, and often a cost effective way of seeing the World
Au Pairing usually involves minding children, helping in the home and sometimes driving the children to and from activities. On your time off you can meet up with other young people to sightsee, travel and socialise.
Equipeople have welcomed hundreds of au pairs to Ireland to assist Irish families. We now offer an outbound au pair service, we have carefully selected our worldwide partner organisations to assist Irish girls to find the location and family that best suits their expectations. These partner organisations have all been placing au pairs with families for many years. They offer a very similar au pair focussed service as Equipeople, including a comprehensive back up service for every student. We are confident that our partners will commit to our excellent standard of service.
Working in a family home as an au pair is a wonderful opportunity for the students to develop language skills, make new friendships and see another part of the World. In fact,the Au Pair experience can also be very beneficial for further career development.
We want our au pairs to really benefit from their time abroad and to enjoy the experience in a safe and secure environment.
