Our Fees for Host Families
We have a very simple fee structure with no hidden fees and charges.
One off placement
AU$450 for Au Pair/Demi Pair/Nanny search and placement for a family based in Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan area.
AU$600 for Au Pair/Demi Pair/Nanny search and placement for a family based outside of Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan.
AU$600 for urgent Au Pair/Demi Pair/Nanny search and placement (4 weeks or less notice).
We will require a deposit of $250 on engagement to commence our search for the Au Pair/Demi Pair/Nanny for your family. The deposit is non refundable as it covers the substantial work which includes preparing of your family profile for our website and FB site, posting adds and screening of candidates.
As part of our placement fee we will:
meet or arrange a video call with you to understand your needs and requirements,
prepare your family profile for our website and FB site,
screen candidates for an Au Pair role for your family,
present you with the Au Pair(s) based on your preferences,
run reference checks for shortlisted Au Pair(s) and confirm Au Pair's visa status,
prepare a Key Terms of Engagement document which confirms the key arrangements between you and the Au Pair,
partner with you throughout your journey with Au Pair.
*COVID19 Message - Please note that while we are making genuine efforts to find an Au Pair for your family, some Au Pairs may decide to leave your family earlier than anticipated. This is because they decide to go home to be with their family and relatives. While we understand that this makes things complicated for you, please have an understanding for the Au Pairs for whom this period may be even more unsettling as they are worried about their loved ones overseas.
As this is totally out of our control, we are not able to refund our fees associated with placement of an Au Pair who decided to leave early due to COVID19. Engagement of an Au Pair during this time is at your own risk. Our fees cover our substantial work and effort in the Au Pair search, interviews, background checks and other work we do pre placement. These are also difficult times for Oz Pair, but we are doing our best to provide continued support to our Host Families*
If you would like to have a piece of mind and security that you will have no gaps between Au Pairs, we offer this premium annual service where we take care of providing the right candidates to you on ongoing basis. There is a one off fee of $1,200 regardless of how many Au Pairs you will require during this year!
We offer flexible payment options via bank transfer, direct debit, PayPal:
One upfront payment; or
Payment in quarterly or monthly instalments.
There is no lock in contract and you can terminate the service at any time. You will only be charged on pro rata basis.
We would also offer you $10% discount on your next Au Pair if you refer a friend to us and they engage an Au Pair through Oz Pair.
If your Au Pair holds a Working Holiday or Work and Holiday visa and they would like to stay with your family beyond 6 months, we can assist you with an application to the Department of Home Affairs to extend the time your Au Pair can work for you. Our fee for this service is AU$300.
The cost of babysitter generally varies between AU$15 and AU$25 per hour depending on experience and the time you need a babysitter for. A discount would generally apply for 5 hours + . This fee goes directly to the babysitter.
We charge an administration fee of AU$25 for babysitter placement.
