3

Make contact

✓ Use our messaging system to send applications and messages to au pairs or host families who interest you.

✓ Host families need to become Premium Members to exchange personal messages with au pairs.

✓ Discuss your mutual expectations via Skype, email or telephone and clarify all the important details, such as au pair tasks, working hours, pocket money, holidays, travel costs and the language course.

4

Sign an au pair contract

✓ Once an au pair and a family agree on all the details of an upcoming stay, these points should be set down in the au pair contract which both parties sign. This way everyone is clear about their rights and obligations.

✓ It is also essential that the au pair is covered by an au pair insurance during the whole au pair stay. 

5

Prepare for the stay

✓ If the au pair needs a visa, then the host family and au pair need to prepare all the necessary documents.
✓ Organise the arrival of the au pair. Exchange information about the date of arrival, flight or train number and make arrangements for meeting the au pair.

Bigsibs' Code of Conduct

To manage your search at AuPairWorld in the best possible way and to quickly find a suitable au pair, it’s helpful to follow a few simple rules:

  • Answer your messages. The search function only works when everyone knows what their current status really is. If certain au pairs are out of the question for you, then promptly decline their offers. If you have received too many applications, then you can temporarily hide your profile in the search results so that you can deal with the applications that you’ve already received.
  • If you receive a negative reply from an au pair, please don’t take it personally. Generally, nothing is to be gained by sending further messages after you’ve received a rejection. Instead, continue your search and contact other suitable au pairs.
  • Be honest in communicating with au pairs. Are there certain situations or habits in your family that a future au pair needs to be aware of? Do your children have allergies, for example? Only by being honest is it possible to avoid problems and misunderstandings during the au pair stay.
  • When you have found an au pair, remember to inform your other current messaging partners and to deactivate your profile.
  • Follow through on your commitments. Your future au pair is relying on that and may very well be making arrangements and paying for the relevant costs. If your plans do change, then please contact your planned au pair immediately.
