Why choose Swedish Connection?

We have over twenty years’ experience of matching au pairs with families in the UK and beyond. We'll be here to support you every step of the way.

Personal placement service

We offer a personal placement service to all of our au pair and nanny candidates, and are here to assist you at every step of your journey in finding the right family to be paired with.

Our social network


We have built a fantastic network of au pairs and nannies. Once we have interviewed you, we will invite you to join our private Facebook group, so you can get chatting to other like minded people even before you arrive. Here we share our top tips, offer advice and introduce you to new friends.

Regular meet-ups 


We organise regular meetings in London for our au pairs and nannies throughout the year. If you choose another destination, we will ensure you are connected with au pairs in your area! In the past we have explored London together, organised walking tours, visited museums and galleries, had picnics in some of London’s historic parks, played rounders, kubb, gone ice skating, and even organised pub crawls! This year group also ran their own book club and sports club with regular meet ups.y.

Ongoing support throughout your stay


We are here to support you throughout your stay, to provide you with a friendly voice to speak to (in either Swedish or English) in case you need it and we are always on hand to offer advice and support. We get to know all of our au pairs before and during your stay so it is just to reach out to us if you have any questions or want to talk.
