Do you also organize placements in Malta?

Question of the week (24 January 2011). Elisa from Italy would like to travel to Malta as a summer au pair for one month. Her question to the AuPairWorld Support Team is: "Do you also organize placements in this particular place?"

I would like to ask you, if it is possible to go abroad for only one month and whether or not you organize placements in Malta? Thank you very much.

Elisa from Italy.

Hello Elisa,

Thank you for your email and interest in AuPairWorld. Au pairs and host families may register on our website creating a profile free of charge. If you like our service and wish to join AuPairWorld, please click here to register as an au pair.

You may use our site to search for a host family, who would accommodate you for one month, but the majority of our registered host families prefer an au pair who would spend at least six months with them. At your registration, you may indicate your preferred length of stay. Our systems filter out all of the host families who best match your search criteria. Due to the fact that we only have a few host families in Malta, we recommend that you choose more host countries at your registration.

As soon as your profile is active, you may start your search for a match. With the “EasyFind” option, AuPairWorld filters out all profiles that match your search criteria. Furthermore, you will receive a "Daily Update" from AuPairWorld with matching profiles of those users, who have recently registered. This way, you will not miss any interesting matches. By using our standard messaging system, you may take the initiative and express your interest in the other party. You may also send positive or negative replies to any messages you receive.

AuPairWorld distinguishes itself from other classic au pair agencies by the fact that we do not act as a mediator between au pairs and host families. Our users are independent in the placement process. They decide for themselves when to register, they define their search criteria, as well as whom they wish to contact and when. Should you find a family living in Malta in your EasyFind, this means you have a good chance of matching. However, do not be too optimistic, as the search for a one-month stay would only provide you with limited results, especially with regard to the fact that you are searching for a host family in one specific country.

Should you have any other questions, do not hestitate to contact us.

Best wishes,

AuPairWorld Support Team
