Thinking of exploring another culture? Do you love looking after children? Maybe working as an Au Pair is for you. Many young adults (18 to 30 years) travel to Australia from all over the world as part of a cultural experience. Being an Au Pair is an ideal way to experience first-hand what it’s like to live in Australia and experience a new culture. As an Au Pair lives with a host family and looks after their children, an Au Pair very much becomes part of the family.
An Au Pair lives with a host family and looks after their children and helps out with light house-keeping. Typically, an Au Pair will receive around $200 to $300 weekly pocket money for around 25 to 30 hours work per week, with 2 days off each week. Au Pairs will also be given full board (own private room and all meals). Whether you’ve worked with children in a babysitting context, looked after younger siblings or family members or whether you have formal training and experience in childcare or teaching and would like to build on your skills, or you just simply love being and connect with children, this may be the perfect once in a life-time opportunity for you!
