Whether you want kids of your own one day or are interested in working in childcare or teaching, nanny jobs and au pair work abroad are a great way to gain experience and see if you’re really cut out for it. You can find these roles all over the world, from Barcelona to New Zealand to Vienna.
As a nanny or au pair you’ll work for a host family as a live-in assistant, taking care of the kids as well as being responsible for various household duties such as cleaning, cooking, and gardening. You’ll be paid for your work, of course, and living with the family means accommodation and food are free, offering a great opportunity to save up some cash.
Nanny and au pair jobs abroad, whether in Europe or North America, will vary from family to family, but most will treat you like a relative, welcoming you into their home and giving you the chance to see a new country from the perspective of a local. You’re also able to travel in your time off. There are au pair and nanny jobs available all over the world, so take your time and find the right placement for you.
