Bunters organise placement opportunities by working with a number of partner Au Pair agents in various countries, who have families offering Au Pair placements registered with them. We typically have more than one partner in each country so we can offer placements in different areas and cities. Having the partner agency is a big advantage also for you as they will be there in the country of your choice if you need help after you arrive.
Being an Au Pair is a great way to build your language skills, meet new friends and experience everyday life, which is why we call it “Cultural Exchange”.
If you are considering finding your own placement on the Internet, we would strongly advise against this and why would you as Bunters does NOT charge you a fee to help you find an Au Pair placement. It is less risk letting an Agency help you, as the placement opportunities offered through our partners abroad are checked by them. We are members of the International Au Pair Association (IAPA) and so are most of our partners. Membership of IAPA is like a quality mark as members have agreed to work to common standards for registering families and Au Pairs. We also co-operate with the same partners to bring Au Pairs to the UK.
