Au pair in Germany


Make Au Pair in Germany your destination for the cultural experience of a lifetime

If you speak basic German, you can live in Germany as an au pair – no childcare qualification required!

From the safety and comfort of a host family, you can immerse yourself in German culture – explore the land of beers and Oktoberfest, sausages, scenery and history.

Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt – famous bustling cities, to quaint picturesque towns and villages.

Return airfare and health insurance included in 12 month placements

Families are carefully selected, with lovely homes from the old world castles and stone buildings in the countryside to chic Berlin addresses.

Live-in with your host family for an authentic German experience. You may also get the opportunity to travel on holidays with the family! Europe sure looks beautiful all-year-round!

We offer you the opportunity to have a quality German host family organised in writing before you leave home.

We will guide you through the entire process and help you find your dream family -so you have full peace of mind before you leave Australia.

So you can pack your bags and say goodbye to family and friends at home, knowing everything is already taken care of.

It is our 100% placement guarantee*

  • We match your dream family requirements and introduce you to as many host families as needed until you are 100% confident you’ve found your perfect family!
  • We’ll advise – and advocate for you – on the very best pay and conditions (and perks) you can negotiate to ensure your time away is the best it can be.
  • Our families not only offer the best conditions, they treat their au pair / nanny the best as well! They will include you in family life and take time to get to know you as a person.
  • We offer 24 hour – 7 day a week local support throughout your placement, from  your dedicated in-country support expert.
  • Sound exciting? It is! Our applicants rave about what we do.

Testimonial

Bonnie in Germany

I think I have great relationships with all the members of my host family. The parents are very helpful with any things I need assistance with, and the twin girls and I love playing together. My host parents are supportive of my life outside of au pair work, and they always encourage me to get out there, join new clubs, make new friends and see the beautiful place we live in! I think everything will work well from here, as the initial phase of ‘seeing how things go’ and getting to know how everyone works is over, and we can live and work together harmoniously. I have also started taking German lessons 3 times a week so I believe my language skills will improve very soon, which will make communication with the family easier. I will keep you updated with my experience in Germany!

Gabrielle in Germany

Hi JCR, we are starting to get ready for Christmas now which I am excited for as it will be my first ‘white Christmas’. I am doing well with the little boy I am looking after and I am getting along well with my host parents so I have had a very positive year so far. I am also really pleased with my German skills I have gained from my classes and help from the family. I have also been in contact via email with other Au Pairs which has been really great as its allowed me to share my experience and also get help and support. Please pass on my email to any au pairs needing a friend to talk to. JCR really does offer a great program and thank you again for this opportunity!
