If you want to live and travel abroad in the long term but lack the funds, working as an au pair is perfect for you! You will get to live with a host family in your own private room, and have all your meals and utility fees covered. Your daily tasks would include caring for the children of the host family and completing general household chores. Get paid, immerse in a new culture and live out your dream life abroad!
An au pair is usually a young person, either female or male, who provides live-in care to the children of a welcoming host family overseas as part of a cultural exchange. You’ll be generously provided with a weekly stipend, your own room in the family home and, typically, two to three meals per day. You may even get the chance to join the family on ski and summer vacations. Being an au pair or nanny abroad gives you the freedom to be more than the average tourist by immersing yourself in a completely new culture and developing valuable life skills. You’ll experience personal growth and maturity, and perhaps learn a new language all whilst having the chance to explore a new country. It’s the perfect opportunity to become a cherished part of a family’s life for years to come, while also getting a genuine sense of what life is like overseas
