If you are looking for an Au Pair you have found the right place. Whether you have had an Au Pair before, and know how Au Pair agencies work, or this is the first time you have needed an Au Pair, Eps can help.
The Au Pair program is in essence a cultural exchange programme. In practice, Au Pairs are often characterised as a foreign - national domestic assistant, working for and living as part of a host family. The Au pair shares some responsibilities for childcare, as well as some housekeeping duties, and in return, receives a small amount of money for personal use.
OUR PLEDGE FOR FINDING YOU THE RIGHT AU PAIR
- Understand your needs and your family situation
- Provide a considered choice of candidates
- Ensure candidates are vetted and profiled
- Help families make informed choices based on as much information on candidates as possible
How we work
PRE-PLACEMENT RESEARCH IS KEY
The time and effort we spend on pre-placement preparation is crucial for us. We take time to talk to families to understand what sort of Au Pair placement they want, who the family is, what sort of people they are, and their expectations of the ideal candidate. We also ask all families to fill out our registration form. It’s not the third degree, and we certainly do not want to collect any more information than is necessary. But it does take a little time, although we try to work with families to fit around their busy schedules.
FINDING THE RIGHT AU PAIR CAN TAKE TIME
Finding the right Au Pair can take time. We try to give a realistic estimate of how long it will take when we know what sort of candidate you are looking for.
WE AIM TO SEND JUST A FEW CANDIDATE PROFILES TO EACH FAMILY
If we are doing our job right, we shouldn't need to send more than 5 profiled Au Pair candidates to families. We take the time to interview candidates, and we apply our intelligent matching tools to find the best candidates for you. In the end, it is our experience and judgement of family needs and the attributes of Au Pairs we are offering.
