We treat you as our partners as you are ambassadors for duran ACTS. As such, we wanted you to be well informed and be excited to venture in a rewarding and enjoyable experience.



Because it all started with us! We have little children at home and we worked with Au-Pairs for many years. We went through it, with all the questions that you might have yourself! We know that you will have questions and we know that you might also have worries. We will help you find answers and solutions to all of this…



You want the BEST for your family? We too. You strive for Family's happiness and balance in your life? That’s what we aim to assist you with. Our mission is to provide professional and high quality services that will help sustain your family’s wellbeing...



PROFESSIONALISM. ETHICS. JOY. These three main values drive us in committing to achieve the goals of our valued families. The same values we employ in striving to stir a satisfying experience for our dear au-pairs and nannies.


Why work with us?

  I give my highest regards to Amabelle and her work. She is both professional and extremely reliable, and holds herself to a very high standard. What is particularly special about Amabelle is the care with which she makes her placements, and the kindness and compassion she has for the women she recruits. I am deeply impressed.

  We have been using the service of duran ACTS twice within the last year with positive result. After having lived several years abroad, we brought our trusted helper from Singapore to Switzerland and Amabelle has been supportive and engaged in ensuring us a work permit for our helper two years in a row. Her service is fast and reliable, and I will happily recommend her to others.

  I met my host family in Zurich through duran ACTS. The agency was there for me from the beginning of my application until my last day. Living in another country and working for a family can be fun and exciting but it can be really tough and challenging. It helps a lot to have a reliable agency. Ms. Amabelle is a dedicated agent, mentor and friend to all her Au pairs. I will always be thankful for all the agency's help and guidance during my year Au pair year in Switzerland.
