Placement Fees


We realise that hiring an au pair or nanny can be costly to a family and therefore we have uniquely structured our placement fees to be as affordable and unique to your specific needs as possible.

We do not charge registration fees for families and only charge a placement fee once a candidate has been offered a position. Generally the placement fee is 11% of the candidate’s annual salary payable once off before duties commence. The agency also offer probation periods, refunds and replacements for families should they not be entirely satisfied with their chosen candidate. Discounted rates are also avaiable for single parents.
