TYPES OF AU PAIR/NANNY JOBS
Family Profile and Role Description
Au pairs will usually stay with a family with young children where the parents work, and in some instances, the family also travels for business around the country. You may also go on holiday with the family too!
Job duties will vary from family to family, although generally the au pair will be expected to help in the home with:
- light housekeeping
During school holidays, most au pairs work extra hours to provide vacation care. Outings to the park, beach, swimming pool or some days you might organise a special trip to different locations such as the zoo maybe.
Au pairs receive their meals and accommodation, and AUD $180 – $300 per week in return for helping in the home for 25/35 hours per week (an average of five or six hours per day Monday through Friday, and possibly some weekend work / babysitting). You will have plenty of time to do your own exploring while making new friends. The normal minimum stay with any one family is six months.
Most Australian families will require that the au pair be a non-smoker, have a valid driving license and that they can drive.
