Hiya

I have used au pair agencies in the past, but the results have been mixed.

My best experience has been via Au Pair world - www.aupairworld.com.

It is quite time consuming but you can use filters to select people and do the assessment yourself, rather than having someone pushed onto you.

I agree with the above. I have used au pair world about six times now and have always had amazing au pairs. It can be time consuming but you learn what to look for. I used an agency once when I had to get someone very quickly and it was a disaster! They sent me terrible au pairs and I realised I could have done a much better job myself for free on au pair world! Feel free to PM me if you want more advice!

We use Smart Aupairs and find they’re great, particularly when we had quite a shy au pair, as they provide support to both sides.
