Do you want to be part of the Norwegian culture? As an au pair you will take part in the everyday life of a Norwegian family. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a different culture and to broaden your horizons.
To apply as an au pair you need to apply through one of our partner organizations. You can not apply directly through Atlantis.
The minimum stay as an au pair is six months. The maximum stay is two years. The majority of families prefer to have an au pair for 12 months. We place au pairs throughout the year, but most au pairs arrive in the summer/early autumn.
Our host families are located all over Norway. We recommend that you are as flexible as possible with regard to area of placement. We cannot guarantee a placement in a specific village or town, and advice you to rather write south, east, west or north of Norway if you have certain preferations as regards to location. Please be aware of the fact that there are no «big» cities in Norway, and remember it is your host family and not the place that makes the stay successful!
If you come from a country outside of the EEA you should apply at least five months to one year before you want to come to Norway. The matching process may also be shorter than this, and we often do have families who want to invite an au pair to come on a much shorter notice. We always try to find you a placement according to your desired date of arrival, but we can never guarantee that we will be able to place you at a specific time.
