Celebrating 30 years
A personal message from our Director:
This year I am delighted to be celebrating 30 years in business! Having started my small enterprise in 1986 from my dining room table, the company has grown beyond my wildest expectations. Today we operate extensive inbound and outbound programmes for young people to participate in life changing experiences and I am honoured to have been able over the years to have introduced this amazing opportunity to so many. Indeed my first au pair candidates could well be parents or grandparents by now, hosting au pairs themselves!
As a Founder Member of the International Au Pair Association (IAPA), and then as Chairperson of the British Au Pair Agencies Association (BAPAA), I was able to play an active role in promoting and regulating au pair programmes both in the UK and internationally. I am fortunate to have been able to travel extensively to participate in industry meetings resulting in the knowledge that my chosen partner agencies work to high standards to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all of our applicants.
My “In-house” Team are professional, committed and loyal and have a great understanding of both the family and au pair requirements. Our programmes are constantly under review enabling us to offer the best candidates and supervise good placements.
Recently I stepped down as Chairperson of BAPPA but still play an active role in the Association as Treasurer.
Looking forward to the future, I hope to continue in my efforts to safeguard young people, expand the business and provide a personal and caring service to all.
