A full Time Au Pair arrangement requires you as an Au Pair to provide child care services to your Host Family for a 40-hour week.  This includes looking after the child/children following a routine you have discussed with your Host Family, and completing light house hold chores such as tidying up after the child/children, completing the washing for the child/children and family chores such as washing dishes and cleaning their own room.

Majority of families in the Pilbara Region work in the Mining Sector or Oil and Gas Sector and do not work a traditional Monday to Friday roster.  Working a full Time Au Pair Placement (40-hour week) may require some of your working hours to be over a night shift period, or over a weekend in order to meet the child care needs of the family.  This will not impact your ability to have time off - part of an agreement will include 2 days off per week. 

In a Full Time Au Pair Placement, you will reside with one family for a period of up to 12 months.  The Host Family will provide you with accommodation, meals and transport in order for you to care for their child/children and provide you with an opportunity to experience Australia and its culture. 

As a minimum, your accommodation will include your own bedroom, access to a bathroom (this may be shared with the family) access to the home and living facilities and transportation in the form of a vehicle. 

If your Host Family require you to work additional hours over a 40-hour week, an additional hourly rate of $10.00 will be paid to you. 

Your Host Family may want you to perform additional house cleaning services above light house hold chores which may include vacuuming, moping, cleaning the kitchen, and cleaning the bathroom/s on a weekly basis.  If this is requested, you will be paid additional funds depending on the size of the house and the level of expectation from the Host Family.
