I looked online and found a number of au pair companies, Au-Pair Link New Zealand caught my eye straight away, I signed up and days later they were in touch and from that moment until I flew to the other side of the world they were so helpful and easy to contact!
The best decision I made last year was to come to New Zealand with Au Pair Link. From the day I enquired about travelling over here, throughout completing my application, arriving here and during my time here so far, Au Pair Link have been such a massive support and could not of made it any easier.
Sometimes the thought of traveling to the other side of the world can seem quite daunting, especially if you’re doing it on your own! Before embarking on such a big step, I knew that I wanted to work in New Zealand. I had heard about how beautiful the country was and how wonderful the people are and felt that this was the right choice for me.
On my first visit from Au Pair Link they asked me what would I like to get out of this year and I answered "to be part of the family I work for" and not only do I feel I have achieved this after 7 months with the family, I felt like I achieved it in the first weeks here.
