We value professionalism and a personal way of working. Thus we expect to work with partners abroad who honor these same values. We choose our partners with care. We expect our agents to find motivated candidates, with the right attitude and traits. That they screen and guide them in a personal way through the process so we can match them with a suitable host family and guide them the whole year to eventually give them the best Au pair experience!
Nadja – “More than just administration, at HBN we listen, we care. I’m more than an agent, I’m a counsellor, a confidant and I live this experience with all my girls. Having lived this whole amazing experience myself and working with HBN for a little more than two years, I have grown, matured and built a strong professional base on the au pair field. And as always, I intend to keep on going and growing side by side with the HBN team.”
Alua – “Together with Nadja, I intend to bring all attention and dedication needed, so you can have an amazing year in Netherlands! As an ex-au pair I know how you feel, what your expectations are and I intend to share all my “fresh” experiences with you. Do not be afraid and let’s build this dream together!”

“Lina – A friend who is going to help you fulfill your dreams. Tu agente en Colombia. Te invito a compartir una experiencia inolvidable. Holanda es un país increíble en donde puedes aprender sobre muchas cosas. Los niños son maravillosos. la gente es muy amable y ni qué hablar de la comida quesos, yogures y ensaladas además todo el mundo está dispuesto a ayudarte para que aprendas el idioma de tu preferencia inglés o dutch. Lo que a mi más me encanto fueron las bicis te puedes recorrer todo el país en bici. aunque ya verás qué extraño se siente ir al mar en invierno es una locura. Cualquier cosa, no dudes en comunicarte conmigo. Déjame hacer parte de tu experiencia de vida.”
