A replacement Au Pair will be arranged in the event your match is not suitable. We endeavour to make sure that both the host family and Au Pair is satisfied with their match.
Each state requires that a person working with children must have a working with children check (WWC) and this is something you and your Au Pair must apply for online or in person at the post office before she/ he starts. Blossom Au Pair Australia can assist you in applying for the correct WWC.
A letter from your family to potential candidates is required at payment stage (or shortly after). This letter is an introduction to your family and is vital for our recruitment process. This is the best way to showcase your family and tell potential Au Pair's why they should join your family. We can not commence shortlisting until this letter is received. If you need assistance with writing this letter please contact us via email for a template.
Please note that your Au Pair can claim up to $250 of travel expenses to get to your home. This inludes regional and metro placements. In the event that the Au Pair does not stay the contracted length of time families can reserve the right to garnish the weekly salary to make up for the allowance. If the Au Pair terminates the contract within the first two weeks the entire amount must be returned to the family.
