Au Pair Agency Scotland
Why use an Au pair agency?

With the advent of the internet it is now possible to bypass agencies and find an Au Pair on one of the many internet sites. This can be risky - the applicants are not vetted, references are not checked and there is no way of knowing how many families the applicant is talking to at any point in time, so they may agree to join a family and then disappear into cyberspace, never to be heard of again! Many of these applicants are really only interested in finding a placement in London - the majority of our applicants have specifically requested a placement in Scotland and have a good idea of what to expect here.

Furthermore, we endeavour to meet every Au Pair and their host family, help them find a place in a language school and are on hand to sort out any issues as they arise.

Au Pairing in Scotland!

Our Au Pairs consistently say that they find us friendly and easy going as a nation and they love our varied landscapes, which more than make up for the unpredictable weather. As the saying goes - 'if you don't like the weather, just wait ten minutes'. Read more...

Why Use Au Pair Ecosse?

Au pair Ecosse was established in 2005 as an Au Pair agency in Scotland. Our main business is placing Au Pair girls and boys with host families in Scotland and our Au Pairs come from France, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Canada, Italy, Spain, Estonia, Latvia, Romania and other countries.

Placements can vary in length - the majority are from 6 - 12 months, but we receive many summer applicants who can provide childcare over the school holiday period.

We also help UK applicants to find Au Pair placements in Europe, the USA, New Zealand and other parts of the world through partnerships with agencies in these countries. All our Au Pairs are asked to supply Police Check certificates and references which will be verified by the sending agent or by ourselves. 

We place all over Scotland and help the Au Pairs to network so they can make friends and settle in quickly. The Au Pair industry in the UK is largely unregulated, but guidance in good practice is provided by BAPAA (British Au Pair Agents Association) of which we are members. Read More....

Why choose Scotland? What our au pairs say:

"Everybody is really nice and friendly, of course I thought
people would be friendly, but not like this”

“I have fallen in love with Scotland and Edinburgh and will absolutely return here. Scotland is stunningly beautiful and Edinburgh has the perfect mix of good nightlife, cafes, culture and beautiful buildings. And the fact that there are loads of parks makes it even better”

"It's totally awesome. It's the best! It's amazing that Scottish people keep their traditiond like that. It's funny and friendly."

"You should go to a Highland Games while you are in Scotland. Why? Because there are men in kilts everywhere and you can hear bagpipes all the day. It's a very unique atmosphere - especially the massed pipe band which opens the games."
