We asked some of our regular client families for some words ‘about us’.
Jacqui’s family lives in Mosman, she has two children and prefers to choose an au pair from candidates ‘here now’. She said:
My family is greatly indebted to Jillian Beilby. For the past five years Select Au Pairs has sent us high calibre au pairs who have exceeded our expectations every time. I don’t say this lightly. Jillian has a knack for hand-selecting and matching girls with families. She is always honest and upfront about any of her concerns or hesitations, and doesn’t send potential au pairs she knows won’t suit.
Select Au Pairs’ interview process is thorough, and it means au pairs always start the role with a very clear understanding of all that is required. It is a big responsibility to place an au pair in a family and Jillian goes above and beyond to make it a seamless and successful process. There is nobody out there that I know of that delivers the same level of service in helping find au pairs for families.
Chris is a father of 2 children living on the Northern beaches who prefers to choose an au pair from the ‘pre-select’ candidates. He wrote:
I have used Select Au Pairs now to find three au pairs for my two children over several years. All have been a great match.
Jillian provides an excellent and customised service , she understands my and the children’s specific needs and works hard to ensure that only credible prospective au pairs that are really worth our interviewing are put forward to us. As a busy single father looking after two children this pre-screening saves us so much time. Select Au Pairs work hard to deliver candidates quickly and minimise any disruption so as to ensure you have childcare support as and when you need it.
Select Au Pairs have long standing relationships with sister Au Pair agencies in Europe that pre-screen all candidates whilst they are still in their home country. You get a bundle of references, police and health checks, confident that the basics have been done. This saves you time and provides great support to ensure the au pair will fit in with your family needs.
I would and do strongly recommend Select Au Pairs to my friends.

About the Agency
Select Au pairs was the first Au Pair Agency established in Sydney and has had the same owner for 23 years.
We place au pairs in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and all cities Australia-wide.
We have a complete understanding of parents’ needs and unrivalled skills in assessing the character and suitability of applicants. We have successfully placed thousands of au pairs with Australian families and our placement process makes it easy for you and stress free. We do not load your family’s personal details on a public database, we offer a personalised au pair service.
If any problems do arise during a placement, Select Au pairs will be ready with support and advice, having helped families and au pairs resolve similar situations in the past.
Jillian is the owner and director of Select Au Pairs. She started her agency in 1996, meeting the challenge of running a business whilst raising her two children as a single parent (with the help of au pairs). In the twenty-three years since then, she has introduced thousands of au pairs to families. Each family and each au pair receives her personal attention, as she strives to give families the help they need and to give au pairs an experience of Australia that they will treasure.
