Become an Au Pair
Have you always dreamed about going abroad? Would you like to experience a different culture and explore another country? Do you love taking care of kids and being around them? …Than the Au Pair Program will definitely suit you!
As an au pair you can experience Dutch life up close as you are a part of a host family during your stay. Its your ´job´ to help the family with the important task of taking care of the children. You may also be asked to do some light household tasks. In return you will receive full board, lodging and an amount of 340 euros of pocket money per month. The Au Pair program in the Netherlands is legally set under several conditions which were created to protect Au Pairs in The Netherlands.
The Dutch culture is known to be very open and friendly. Young foreign people will notice the free and open vibe as soon as they arrive. Dutch people speak their languages very well (everybody speaks English) and it is very easy to go from A to B safely. Check out more about Holland.
At HBN Au Pair Services we are looking for educated girls who are energetic, independent, caring and reliable. We will screen you on the requirements but also on motivation. Having the right motivation is KEY when wanting to become an Au Pair through our agency. Since host families need an Au Pair for help with childcare and light household tasks, being an Au Pair is not the same as being on Holiday. We feel it is important that you are really interested in children and that you are able or willing to learn how to relate to children, teach them things and actively help the parents educate them.
To support you, our personal agents abroad will advise you when you are still in your home country. Next to this we have set up a special HBN training that we will go through at our Welcome meeting at our office. This training will help you get into your role as an Au Pair and explains you what is expected of you as an Au Pair. It will help you to adapt to your new surroundings, differences in culture and living habits. We feel that with the right preparation and attitude you will have the time of your life in Holland and we are committed to making sure that you do.
Not only our Au Pair candidates are carefully selected, Our host families are screened as well, in order to make sure you will be welcomed by a loving and caring family who will treat you with respect. Our job is to give you an amazing experience that you will never forget.
