A-One Au Pairs agency is a full member of the International Au Pair Association and the British Au Pair Agencies Association, the only not-for-profit association to set standards for British Au Pair agencies.
We select au pairs based on their suitability for childcare, management of light household duties and flexibility to fit into family life. We consider these criteria as well as independence, interests and other aspects of personality when making the selection. When providing clients with au pairs to consider we try to match au pair and family interests and needs and ask clients to provide information to assist in that matching
A-One Au Pairs is an established au pair agency in the family owned Hilsam Group with many years experience of successfully placing au pairs. Hilsam Company Limited is run by Hilary Perry together with her family and multi-lingual staff.
With nearly 50 years experience between them they have a complete understanding of the Childcare needs of families in the United Kingdom.
The Hilsam Group consists of many different Au Pair Agencies acquired over the years, The trading name of the Group is JUST AU PAIRS
Au Pairs by Avalon (Est. 1954), Au Pairs of Surrey, European Au Pairs and The Linden Bureau were purchased by Hilsam Company Limited in 2005. The previous owners having been in the Au Pair business for many years deciding to take retirement. We obtained a number of new Agents abroad, and their Host Families soon became part of the Hilsam Group. It opened a whole new chapter, and lots more areas in the United Kingdom soon
became familiar with the
Hilsam Company Limited (t/a Just Au Pairs), and the number of Au Pairs placed each year grew.
In 2007 A-One Au Pairs & Nannies joined the group when the previous owner retired from the Au Pair market. Once again gaining more Agents throughout Europe and a whole new batch of Host Families.
Today The Hilsam Group of Companies brings approximately 800 Au Pairs a year, placing them all over the United Kingdom, making it one of the largest Au Pair Agencies in the UK. However we still consider ourselves a family run business, still giving the personal touch to our families; unlike when Hilary first started in the Au Pair market, a lot of things are now computerised, and now some agencies are only run by computers.
However the Staff at
the Agency enjoy talking to their Host Families and Au Pairs, so always feel free to call for advice.
