Welcome to Hilsam


Hilsam Company Limited is run by Hilary Perry together with her family and multi-lingual staff.

With nearly 50 years experience between them they have a complete understanding of the Childcare needs of families in the United Kingdom.

The Hilsam Group consists of many different Au Pair Agencies acquired over the years, The trading name of the Group is JUST AU PAIRS

Au Pairs by Avalon (Est. 1954), Au Pairs of Surrey, European Au Pairs and The Linden Bureau were purchased by Hilsam Company Limited in 2005. The previous owners having been in the Au Pair business for many years deciding to take retirement. We obtained a number of new Agents abroad, and their Host Families soon became part of the Hilsam Group. It opened a whole new chapter, and lots more areas in the United Kingdom soon became familiar with the Hilsam Company Limited (t/a Just Au Pairs), and the number of Au Pairs placed each year grew.

In 2007 we purchased A-One Au Pairs & Nannies, again the previous owner retiring from the Au Pair market. Once again gaining more Agents throughout Europe and a whole new batch of Host Families.

Over the years, The Hilsam Group of Au Pair Agencies has brought many thousands of Au Pairs to the United Kingdom.. However we still consider ourselves a family run business, still giving the personal touch to our families; unlike when Hilary first started in the Au Pair market, a lot of things are now computerised, and now some agencies are only run by computers. However the Staff at the Agency enjoy talking to their Host Families and Au Pairs, so always feel free to call for advice. Meanwhile please visit each of their Au Pair sites at justaupairs or Aupairs by Avalon or A-One Au Pairs & Nannies each site is different.

We hope this has helped you and we really look forward to advising you, and being of assistance to you when choosing help with Childcare.
