Testimonial

Jess, Australia

“I wish to dedicate a post to JCR Au Pairs & Nannies – the agency I went through to get my placement in the UK. They have been fantastic. For anyone who wants a gap year (or an adventure year like me), I totally recommend them. Really friendly folk who’ll answer any little question and make sure you know what to do. Though it’s a pretty involved process to make an application for host families to look at, I think it’s worth it because you know that JCR are making the effort to check the characters of all people involved. They called everyone I used as a reference! And I want to thank all those people too. Obviously the nice things said outweighed the bad… So thank you for all your hard work, and reassuring emails!! – Jess in the UK
