"Choosing Smartaupairs as my placement agency has been the best decission I could have made! I’ve been living in Kingston upon Thames for almost five months now and to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be such a great experience. Not only do you get a unique insight into the amazing British culture, but also you get the chance to take responsibility and in particular work independently with children. Therefore I really think that the last few months have had a positive impact on my personal growth and skills. During this journey Smartaupairs has definitely been of great help. It took me less then a month from sending my application to the agency to flying over to London which exemplifies how fast the process is handled. The assistants repeatedly reach out via email to make sure you are still happy with your placement and also offer you a variety of ways for socializing in your area, constantly being interested in making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Given that I wasn’t even charged a fee, I was positively surprised about how excellent the support was and would definitely recommend Smartaupairs to anybody who wants to make his way as an Au pair abroad!"
