Apply Now for Au Pair in America


Interviews take place all year round, so you can apply whenever it suits you. But you should allow at least three months before you want your placement to begin. Your exact departure date will depend on your host family’s requirements.

You'll need regular Internet access to apply online - start your application by registering here which is the Online Application site for Au Pair in America - your virtual CV and application. 



To get yourself started, begin collecting the following items:

  • Copies of your latest school, academic and/or vocational certificates or diplomas
  • A copy of your full driving license
  • A criminal record check application completed and sent to us for processing (we send to the NZ Police) - - this takes 4-6 weeks - if you're needing to start sooner you can get our Paid Priority Police Check Service which only takes 5 working days
  • A copy of your passport 



Before your interview you will need to:

  • Complete the application
  • Complete a Dear Host Family Letter
  • Provide recent photographs of yourself and the children you’ve cared for
  • Upload a video clip of yourself to your application- read the Video Guidelines for best results and hints
