Au Pair agency serving families in Cambridge and the UK


Au pair agency with unique video profiles

A Unique family run au pair agency

Offering video introductions of our candidates, 1st Choice Au Pairs© continues to lead the way with a comprehensive and unrivalled full service. It's almost as good as attending the interview yourself – without the hassle.

We have direct contact with our families and au pairs. Personally traveling overseas to meet prospective candidates each month. And having three children ourselves, our acid test always is "would we be happy inviting this person to our home". We offer exceptional value for money – the majority of new business coming through referrals from satisfied clients.

Comprehensive vetting processes

We have exacting standards with only 1 in 3 people coming through our demanding screening process. Using a diverse range of recruitment techniques including psychometric testing and competency based interviewing, we personally corroborate references, obtain medical and police checks as standard, and conduct educational attainment and identity checks for every person.

Oustanding communication

Being 'one agency' (not working with partners) we avoid communication issues of too many links in the chain. Since we are dealing with both sides, we can check requirements easily, and quickly provide information to follow up questions enabling more informed placement matches – using science as well as our own gut feeling.
