Our offer to German au pairs:

Also out of the office hours our agency Friends for Families is mostly within reach for you. Willingly we advise you friend-
ly and non-committally.

Our offer currently includes the placement at host families
from Great Britain, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Spain,
Italy, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, China, Australia and the USA. Furthermore we aspire to be shortly able to also pro-
vide placements to Canada and South Africa. For our work we attract support by credible partner agencies from the mentioned countries.

As a German au pair you pay for our agency's placement throughout Europe one-time 240 € (+ added value tax). A placement in Australia or the USA is priced at 450 € due to our agency's sharply higher amount of work.

As participants of the au pair programme the German applicants are provided with the opportunity to live with foreign host families for a period of six to twelve months, to im-
prove their knowledge of foreign languages there and to get to know the particular culture as well as the way of life of the host country. Thereby the amount of pocket money, which you get as payment for carrying out the duties in childcare and in the household, complies with the standard rates of the host country.

Could we answer your questions? Then we’re looking forward to your application.

Our offer to au pairs from international foreign countries:

We help young people from all over the world to participate in the au pair programme, which enables the participants from abroad to spend six to twelve months in German or Austrian host families, to improve their language skills there and to get to know the German or Austrian culture as well as the way of life. In return for board, lodge and a monthly pocket money amounting to 260 € (240 € in Austria) the au pairs carry out tasks in childcare and in the household.

For the au pairs from abroad who apply for Germany and Austria the participation in the au pair programme is principally free of charge. This means, that no costs arise for our performance of placement. However as a participant in the au pair programme you yourself have to cover the expenses for the visa fee (if you come from a Non-EU-country) and the journey to your host family.

Before finally making a decision about your host family, we recommend you – if pos-
sible – to get to know this family already within the scope of a visit in advance. If this shouldn’t be possible indeed, you and your potential host family by all means should personally make contact with each other by phone. Like this you can swap ideas on your individual characteristics and wishes.

After you’ve made your decision, you get an invitation of the host family and an au pair contract signed in advance. Present these documents together with your per-
sonal papers at the embassy or consulate in your home country when applying for
the visa.

After your placement and arrival our au pair agency Friends for Families doesn’t stop working. We care for you for the whole duration of your au pair stay and are always at your disposal with help and advice.

From the moment of your arrival in Germany resp. Austria you’re covered by an au pair insurance against the events of damage or loss disease, accident and liability for the whole duration of your stay. The costs for this au pair insurance are borne by your host family.

In Germany or Austria you are given the opportunity to attend a language course, which we want to recommend warmly to you as well. Firstly such a course helps you to improve your German and secondly it puts you in the position to socialise. Of course
we also help you in making contacts to other au pairs who live near you, if applicable.

In this context we organise au pair meetings, which regularly take place, span a whole weekend and to which we heartily invite all our au pairs at a convenient point of time.

Could we answer your questions? Then we’re looking forward to your application.
