About Au Pair SA
What is Au Pair SA?
Au Pair SA is a South African online au pair agency that has serviced over 20 000 families and 80 000 au pairs around the country since its inception in 2007.
The website matches up families in South Africa with South African au pairs looking to work locally, without the hassle of dealing with a standard au pair agency and at a fraction of the cost of a regular au pair placement service.
We cater for part-time and full-time positions, morning and afternoon positions, live-in and live-out placements, special needs placements, and placements of all types of au pairs from students to professional care-givers to retired moms looking to use their experience to help a new family.
How does it work?
Au pairs who are looking for an au pair job register for free on the website to view a list of our currently available vacancies. Families who are looking for an au pair can also register for a free "Limited" membership to view a list of currently available au pairs.
Timetables, location, special requirements/skills etc. are all part of a detailed set of criteria used by the website when matching au pairs and families.
