Local Childcare Coordinator

Flexible, work from home opportunity!

GreatAuPair is a full-service au pair agency that has been providing affordable live-in childcare to American families through carefully screened international au pairs since 2001. GreatAuPair is designated by the US Department of State, an honor bestowed to only a handful of agencies. GreatAuPair seeks to hire Local Childcare Coordinators to work with host families and au pairs. This is an independent contractor position that affords unlimited growth opportunity.

As a Local Childcare Coordinator in your community, you are an important member of our team. You will be working closely with host families and au pairs to provide program support as well as reaching out in your community to market and grow the program. This is the perfect position for individuals who have a passion for cultural exchange and a desire to make a positive impact on the lives of families and exchange visitors. GreatAuPair offers a competitive compensation plan (based on actual number of host families) along with a generous program discount for Local Childcare Coordinators who desire to host their own au pair. You will have the benefit of GreatAuPair’s vast marketing resources and website with thousands of host families to help build your market.
