                      Australia

                      Become an au pair in Australia

                      Request More Info

                      Overview

                      Becoming an Au Pair in Australia is an affordable international educational experience that will enhance your resume through practical experience. And when you return home, imagine the kind of job you can get when you list this experience.

                      Fees

                      • $789 flat fee for 6 to 12 months.
                      • Pay with Klarna and set up weekly or monthly payments.
                      • Or pay a $350 deposit, then a final amount of $439 after you approve the match.

                      Responsibilities

                      • Take care of the children during scheduled hours.
                      • Help the children with their homework and assist in keeping children’s rooms and play areas clean.
                      • Prepare snacks and meals for the children and drop them off or pick them up from school or activities.
                      • Keep your private bedroom tidy.
                      • Don't keep late hours that will disturb your host family without their permission.
                      • You must meet the Working Holiday Visa requirements set forth by the Australian Government.

                      Requirements

                      • Be between the ages of 18 and 30. (Female Au Pairs are placed quickly, while male Au Pairs can take a bit longer to be placed.)
                      • Have previous childcare/babysitting experience with references and a genuine love of children.
                      • Commit to a minimum of 6 months as an au pair in Australia.
                      • Provide a medical statement and a background check.
                      • Be interviewed by phone or Skype to be accepted by the family.
                      • Have driving experience.
                      • Hold a passport to obtain the Working Holiday visa 462 (US citizens) or the Working Holiday Visa 417 (Canadian citizens). This visa allows you to live and work in Australia legally.

                      What You Will Earn

                      • The average monthly stipend is AUD $800 for between 28-40 hours of childcare per week. If you stay six months, you'll pocket around USD $5,000. Obviously, if you stay a year you'll earn double that. Remember ... your visa is good for one year. Be an au pair for six months, and then you can work anywhere else in Australia if you want and possibly earn a lot more.
                      • Before you arrive in Australia, you will receive a timetable with duties and working days/hours, so you know exactly the working time. The family must respect your time off. Should the family require you to work outside the usual working hours, both sides must agree that any extra hours worked must be paid.
                      • Usually, au pairs are provided two days off per week. (Plan to provide one weekend evening per month to watch the children.) Some families provide 1½ days off, but that information will be provided in advance.

                      Included

                      • Personalized placement with a carefully screened host family. In other words, a place to call home in Australia.
                      • A private room and full board. In addition to your monthly stipend, you're getting your room and board free.
                      • The possibility to use the family’s car.
                      • An end of program bonus from the host family for qualified au pairs:
                        • 6-month au pairs receive $500 or 1-2 weeks additional pay at the end.
                        • 12-month au pairs receive $500 and 1-2 weeks additional pay.
                        • You may also choose 4-weeks of paid holiday as your bonus.
                      • Local support in Australia, 24/7.
                      • Pre-departure materials.
                      • Monthly au pair coffee group and occasional special events.

                      Not Included

                      • Airfare to and from Australia.
