Au Pair Australia

Ready for your big OE? Welcome to Nannies Abroad
Au Pair in Australia
If you want to work as an Au Pair in Australia – we can get you a job before you leave NZ.
This eliminates the risk of getting there and not being able to find work, saving you lots of cash. We have lovely families and the pay is great. Placements are for a minimum of 6 months.
Can I apply to be an Au Pair in Australia?
We have three levels for Au Pairing in Australia – and I am sure one will suit you.
  • Au Pair in Australia– 200 hours minimum experience. You will care for children over the age of three years old only.
  • Au Pair in Australia Plus – you can care for children under 3 years old as well as over. You will need 100 hours with under 3’s.
  • Au Pair Platinum – have a minimum of 2 years full time experience or hold a degree or child care related certification
When is the best time to start a job as an Au Pair in Australia.
  • January – limited placements
  • February – excellent
  • March – excellent
  • April – excellent
  • May – excellent
  • June – excellent
  • July – average
  • August – average to good
  • September – average to good
  • October –average to good
  • November – average to good
  • December – average
So – what that means is – if you are flexible on your start date we can place you. Don’t book your flights until we have found you a confirmed job as an au pair in Australia. I know cheap flights can be tempting but you’ll lose any savings you made pretty quickly while waiting for a job.
What do I get as an Au Pair Australia program participant

  • You then choose the family you are most happy with – we will assist with setting up interviews by phone and skype
