Re: Hiring Au Pair, Non-EU Family in Zurich

Have you thought about trying to find a Swiss youngster to come and help you - there are some agencies (church based I think) that specifically organise intra-swiss au pair exchanges. I am not sure about the language requirements but it is less complicated with respect to permits etc. We had a young woman stay with us, she was Swiss of Portugese extraction and a Francophone. She wanted to learn german better and took classes at the Micros and because we spoke English at home she also learnt that a bit more too. It was a bit informal because I didn't work so we didn't really have an absolute requirement for an au pair, but it was lovely having her around.
