About Us - Our Staff Team

If you are a family you will usually speak with Jay at some stage of the process. Most of our families get to know one or two other members of our team though, and may work with Ramona as their main point of contact. If you are an old family you may remember someone who was with usin the UK before. We keep in touch with almost all of our old hands and one or two of them still help us in their home countries when we are travelling away from the UK office to one of our events.

Our Team

Having lived and worked in the USA and various European countries, Jay has a passion for travel and is a great advocate for the opportunities it can bring. Jay worked for 20 years in the high tech world of Telecoms, and has also worked as an independent business consultant - including most recently consulting for a national provider of Children's Homes and Residential Schools. Jay decided to use his knowledge of new technology and change management experience to reinvent this service business from scratch and so 1st Choice Au Pairs was born.
