How to find an au pair – Related Questions

Answers to the frequently asked questions concerning the Find an au pair search can be found here:

How do I know if the au pairs displayed are still searching for a placement?

AuPairWorld ensures the quality of the search results through a number of measures. To ensure that only profiles of those au pairs who are currently actively searching for a host family, are displayed, the following conditions apply:

  • Only profiles with a current start date or a start date in the future are displayed. Profiles with start dates which lie in the past are not shown.
  • Only au pairs who have logged into their profiles within the last 14 days are displayed in the lists. We presume that these au pairs are still looking for a family, even though there might be a few among them, who have already found someone.
  • Profiles of au pairs who have already found a family are manually deactivated by the au pair or the AuPairWorld team.
  • Au pairs who have too many unanswered messages are equally not displayed.

Should you notice that an au pair is not actively looking for a placement, please contact us. We appreciate our users' support in helping make AuPairWorld the most trusted online au pair agency.

Are the au pairs genuine?

Over the years, AuPairWorld has steadily been developing various security measures to ensure the quality and reliability of the data provided on our website. Checking profiles is one of them, and contrary to what you might think, many of these checks are done automatically by our systems. However, the biggest part is manually done by the AuPairWorld Team. Read more about AuPairWorld's security measures.

As a host family you can also do a lot to find out whether the au pairs you are contacting are genuine or not

If you have any doubts about an au pair, stop the contact at once and then inform us. We will be glad to look into the matter for you or take further steps.

How are my search results sorted?

All au pairs in the search results are listed in order of their last login. This way, everyone will have the chance to be at the top of the list if he or she regularly logs in and answers received messages.

How can I obtain the best search results?

Profiles displayed in your general search results will only give you a general overview of the au pairs registered on AuPairWorld. Their search criteria do not necessarily match your own personal preferences.

For more refined search results, we recommend you to use your EasyFind, your personal search function. It shows you all matching profiles according to the number of consistent criteria. Thus, using your EasyFind is the easiest way to find the au pair who best matches your family.

How do I find my own profile?

After the registration and even during the course of their search for an au pair, some host families search for their own profiles in order to make sure that they have done everything correctly and that their profiles will be found by the au pairs. For this purpose, you need to stand in the shoes of an au pair whose profile corresponds with the criteria you indicated in your own profile.

After clicking on "Find a family", use the answer "I live in" to indicate the country that you wish your au pair to come from, and "I would like to be an au pair in" to indicate the country in which you as a host family live in. If you wish to find your profile on the first pages, please remember to log into your profile first. The profiles are sorted according to the last login, the most recent at the top.
