Au Pair Info > Looking for Placement
If you are interested in becoming an au pair, then our registration and services to you are free of charge. We take careful time and consideration when matching au pairs and families together as it is very important to get the right match and suitability for not just you as an au pair but also for your prospective host families' needs.
In exchange for hospitality provided by the host family you will help to care for the children and take on light housework duties and babysitting up to 2 evenings a week. There are now 2 types of au pair available, an au pair and an au pair PLUS.
An Au Pair can work up to 25 hours per week normally spread over 5 days, being 5 hours per day, with 2 full days off each week. Some babysitting in the evening may be required which will be no more than 2 evenings per week inclusive for your payment of pocket money. If more babysitting is required form the family for the evening other than the 2 days then it is up to you to communicate with your family to do this. If you do extra babysitting then the host family will pay you extra.
An Au Pair PLUS can work 35 hours a week normally spread over 5 days, with 2 full days off a week and again 2 evenings per week babysitting in the evening all inclusive of your pocket money. An au pair plus does get paid more also, but then the hours are more.
