Welcoming Tamara to Smartaupairs

We are really pleased to welcome Tamara to the Smartaupairs team as our intern!

Tamara has been an au pair in the UK herself and therefore knows exactly what it is like from the au pair’s point of view.

She will be assisting our team in au pair support and will be there to offer advice and guidance to au pairs throughout their application process and placement. She will also be helping to organise some upcoming events!

Tamara is a native German speaker and also speaks Italian and English.

Here is her message to all of our au pairs:


My Name is Tamara, I’m 24 years old and I’m from Austria. I have studied International Cultural and Business Studies in Passau, Germany. Before I went to university I have been an au pair myself. I have spent an amazing year in the UK living with a host family in Oxfordshire.

I’m really happy to be back in the UK and I’ll do my very best to help all of YOU current au pairs to make the most of your stay!


Welcome Mareike – Our New Intern at Smartaupairs UK!

During her placement at Smartaupairs, Mareike seeks to gain considerable practical experience in a business environment and hopes to make a meaningful contribution to our agency.

Mareike’s native language is German and she has studied English for more than 12 years. Additionally she is eager to improve her Spanish skills.

In her free time, Mareike enjoys travelling around Europe and learning about new cultures, playing volleyball and spending time with her family and friends.
