Find an au pair
Today there are many great opportunities to find au pairs, as there is great interest among applicants who would like to go to Europe. But there can be a lot of paperwork and several pitfalls in connection to the application process, and here it may be relevant to get help from someone who specializes like an agency.
Many families are already busy in their daily lives, and since an au pair application requires a lot of work and a lot of rules to familiarize themselves with, it can be a good idea to buy assistance.

3 good reasons for having an au pair
1. The family gets help with caring for children (perhaps to retrieve and bring to daycare and school) It can often be difficult to find time for both work and children, so if you want to make sure there are always some at home when you need it Then it is obvious to have an au pair accommodation. An au pair works well only a few hours a day, but you can arrange a schedule that makes it linked so that the au pair can take care of the children when needed.
2. The family gets help for several things in the house. Sometimes it can also be difficult to find time for cooking, and here an au pair can also typically come in with assistance. Many au pairs, especially from Asia, make delicious and healthy food, and want to share their food culture. So it's just to make use of it. Other benefits include cleaning and general household.
3. Cultural exchange between au pair and family. You get a really good friendship, and that includes insight into each other's cultures. An au pair always comes from abroad, so in any case you will be introduced to something completely new. The same applies even more to an au pair who will always get a unique stay in Denmark and get to know a very ordinary Danish family. And the language is certainly not to be forgotten. That the children get the opportunity to learn English and perhaps a language more, and au pair get the opportunity to learn Danish. It is something that comes to every benefit.
Do you want to get an au pair, who is already in the current country?
If you want to get an au pair, who is already in the current country and would like to change host, then it may well be possible. But be aware, that the process may take longer, before there is a match. Primarily because the au pairs that are here already, often want to stay in that city / area they already live in geographically. But they can also have contact with several families at a time. And we also spend a lot of time asking, about why the au pair wants a family change. They are not always interested in involving us the the problems occurred in the current family. Besides, there are always two sides of a story. So our recommendation and advise is to always spend the time on finding the right au pair that you have a good chemistry with and do what is necessary to get it right the first time. But it is up to you. We will always strive to help and do as you wish.
The process * is as follows:
As a family you have to fill out the application form and send it to us. You can find the form here. Then we send the first invoice of 400 EUR. When that is paid, we regularly send candidates who are in Denmark. We will continue to do this until there is a match. Then we guide you in filling out the application, create Caseid, insurance etc. We will guide you throughout the process, and help you until there is hopefully an approval. If you have questions or anything, during the period you have the au pair in your home, you are always welcome to contact us. So we do not release you, even when the au pair is approved. And that is free of charge. We are here to help, alle the way.
* The process is the same, regardless of, whether the au pair is outside EU or not.
