What are you going to do

We are looking for a new team member ready to rise to the challenge to contribute and be part of our future.

You will assist us with:

  • General office administration

In short, the intern will have real responsibilities to ensure the role is meaningful and the opportunity to learn about the overall operations of the business great!

We can also tailor certain tasks depending on the interest – e.g. if events planning is of interest we can include more of this in the tasks, similarly if marketing is an area of interest – we can allocate more social media work for the student.

The position currently open is from August 2017 onwards.

Smartaupairs is an International Cultural Exchange Agency specialising in Au Pair placements. We provide families with affordable & flexible childcare and give young people the opportunity to live abroad with a host family and take part in an 'earn & learn' program. An au pair helps with childcare and light housework in exchange for full board and pocket money. Our UK office facilitates placements with host families in Britain and is looking to develop the 'Au Pair in Australia' program. We have a small, international and dynamic team in our offices in Britain and Sydney. Our passion and innovative approach continues to drive growth of the program.
