Au Pair career oppotunities!

At Au Pair Link we place au pairs to live-in with host families and care for their children. We have heaps of fully screened families looking for au pairs to start RIGHT NOW! Unfortunately, we cannot fill these au pair roles like we normally would due to the borders being closed, so we would like to offer this opportunity to Kiwis in need of employment.

It is a great option for students who were perhaps planning on having a gap year and are now not able to travel or for those who would like to move out of home and see a different area of New Zealand, without the pressure of finding a flat and paying bills. For students interested in working in childcare we offer the option to study for their Level 4 ECE certificate during their placement – they can earn an extra $50 each week and receive a $500 completion bonus!
