Finding the “right” Au Pair can take time
Sometimes days, on other occasions weeks. We try to give a realistic estimate of how long it will take when we know what sort of candidate you are looking for. We aim to send just a few candidate profiles to each family, We would rather spend extra time finding the right Au Pair than simply drip feeding any list of candidates, even though that would undoubtedly be quicker and easier.
If we are doing our job right, we shouldn't need to send more than 3 short listed candidates to families. We take the time to interview candidates, and we apply our intelligent matching tools to help pin point the best candidates we can find. In the end, it is our experience and judgement of family needs and the attributes of Au Pairs we are offering.
Review Candidates Quickly
Lastly, when we do send through profiles of candidates, please look at them quickly - 24 to 48 hours. If the candidates are good, there is every chance another family will snap them up!
How do we find our Au Pairs?
We source Au Pairs who are currently studying for an Early Childhood Development course, Au Pairing Course or have graduated from studying any Child care course. We do believe that they are the right fit for the job because they have the passion, knowledge and patience for working with children.
How do we interview our Au Pairs?
We invite our candidates for a face to face interview to learn more about their personalities and really just to get to know them apart from what is contained in their CV, this enables us to get the perfect fit for your family and to make sure they represent what our agency stands for. We then do Reference and Qualification checks and if all checks out, we then forward the details to you for an interview.
How do we support you after placing an Au Pair?
At Clementines we offer ongoing support and mediation to our host families and Au Pairs, we provide our Au Pairs with ongoing resources to help them be knowledgeable in child care education, health and safety.
