3: Select Your Au Pair
Our team will assist you in arranging an interview with your potential Au Pair. We invite you to telephone the Au Pair to discuss the placement, suitable start dates and confirm the placement..
(It is an opportunity for both parties to discuss things like home duties, working hours, children duties, free time...etc.
Upon completion of the interview, we will get everybody's feedback and either confirm a placement or you may review further Au Pair profiles.
4: Confirmation of her Placement and Getting Ready for her Arrival
Once you are happy with the Au pair, we ask you to confirm her placement. At this time of confirmation, our agency will send to both the agreement form with a full description of the au pair tasks.
We will then send you a Pack to assist you in preparing for the arrival of your Au Pair. The pack includes Au Pair Australia own Host family Handbook containing a wealth of information about hosting an Au Pair.
5: Travel to Australia is organized
Support During the Placement
Travel to Australia is organised and paid for by the Au Pair. The Au pair proceeds to book her flight and get a working holiday visa. (This usually takes few days) And the family is advised of all final travel arrangements (including date, flight numbers, arrival times, etc). The au pair arrives in Australia at her own expense. You will be required to meet your Au Pair at an airport/train station on her arrival.
Once your Au Pair starts her placement with your family, our team is available to support both, you and the Au Pair for the duration of the placement.
