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.
I have lived here for 2 months now and already feel completely settled and have a new life here. I instantly felt welcome in my host family and I have always been treated like another family member, which is exactly what you need when you are on the other side of the world from your own home and family.
It has been very easy to meet people as it is true when you hear that kiwi’s are very friendly people. Between Au Pair Links’ weekly coffee groups and monthly events, there are lots of opportunities to meet other Au Pairs as well. The organised events give you the chance to see the highlights around where you live and do fun things that you want to do without having to hunt down the best place to do them.
What I love most about this job is that it does not feel like work, I absolutely love what I am doing. New Zealand is also a beautiful country that I have the time to travel around and fully experience the culture, so it’s a total WIN! I think if anyone is considering doing this, just go for it would be my advice because you definitely won’t regret it.
