HOW DOES IT WORK TO BE AU PAIR IN FRANCE ?

1. I CREATE MY PROFILE

Take note of the requirements for Au Pairs : Becoming an Au Pair 

I create my Au Pair account and I complete 100% of the profile for the site with photos.

I fill out the 2 questionnaires that I receive by email: a registration form and a role play questionnaire.

2. BUTRFLY VALIDATES MY APPLICATION

Within 48 hours, the Butrfly team will get in contact with me for a video chat interview.

To finalize my file, I send copies of my passport, I.D. and a letter of recommendation to Butrfly via email (at contact@butrfly.com).

All candidates will have to present a letter of recommendation to be considered.

 

3. I CHOOSE MY FAMILY FROM THE PROPOSED FAMILIES PROVIDED BY BUTRFLY

Once my profile is approved by Butrfly, I receive family profiles that match up with what I am looking for. I have 48 hours to respond with my choice.

Butrfly sends my profile to the families that I have chosen.

The family will get in contact with me within 48 hours, if they are interested.

4. I RECEIVE THE CONTRACT AND PAY MY DUES TO BUTRFLY

To receive the contract, I must provide medical certificate. Butrfly is in charge of the contract and will take care of all aspects of it.

If my visa is still needed, I contact Butrfly (contact@butrfly.com) directly to help with the details.

Butrfly takes charge in scheduling all French courses.

Butrfly makes sure that I have insurance covered by the family for the entirety of my stay.

5. I PREPARE FOR MY JOURNEY AND GET READY TO JOIN MY HOST FAMILY IN FRANCE

I send the dates for my visa to the embassy and the Butrfly team.

I send my travel details, including the dates and time, upon my arrival in France to the Butrfly team.
