Working in Australia
By living with a carefully selected family as an au pair/nanny you will be able to work with children and really taste the "Australian way of life".
You will make new friends from around the world, safe in the knowledge that we are there to care for you and ensure that your stay is all you have dreamed of!
Your host family in Australia will be chosen by you before your leave the UK. You will be given every opportunity to speak with, skype, email and exchange photos and information with those families who appear to be a suitable match for your requirements and our Team will always be on hand to give any advice you may require. Together with our Australian partner agencies, we are able to offer you a pre-arranged family in or around SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, PERTH, BRISBANE, ADELAIDE, BYRON BAY, THE GOLD COAST or even ALICE SPRINGS! You would fly direct to that city and join the family on arrival.
In Australia an Au Pair is expected to work between 25 - 30 hours per week. Salary is approximately AUS $180 plus free board and lodging. Lots of free time! An Au Pair has usually had some experience in childcare but has had no formal training.
A qualified Nanny can earn between AUS $250 - $350 per week plus full board and lodging (subject to experience and hours worked)
A qualified nanny will normally expect to have 'sole charge' of the children in her care and will be responsible for their general well-being. Length of Stay: 3 to 12 months Driving: It is preferable for you to hold a current driving licence. Without this your choice of families is limited.
