Information For Au Pairs

General Information

Are you over 18 years old with an interest and aptitude for working with children? Are you flexible enough to fit in with an Irish family and keen to experience Irish culture? Becoming an au pair with us could be for you. You could also improve your English and attend part-time English lessons if desired.

Why choose SK Dublin?

• We have already placed over 3,000 au pairs in Ireland.
• We visit the families in person before placing the au pair.
• We are available to provide support and advice during your stay in Ireland. In the unlikely case of a justifiable complaint we will attempt to find another family.
• The family will pick you up at the airport on arrival and drop you off on the date of departure or pay your train or bus fare.
• We can organise English Classes at very favourable rates.
• We organise tours for au pairs to visit places in Ireland on regular occasions. Our next tour is to Derry & The Ulster American Folk Park on January 19th/20th, 2019.  Details on our Facebook page “SK Dublin Au Pairs”
