au pair

Au Pair in Germany: duties

Your expected tasks in a Host Family will be individually regulated and can therefore vary from family to family.

It is important that your timetable allows you to attend a German course in order to improve your language skills and get a certificate that can prove that. Your family should respect the maximum number of hours you are entitled to work as an Au Pair and this should be written in the contract in order to avoid misunderstandings.

Once in Germany, you should set up a daily / weekly schedule with your Host Family. In order for you to get an idea, we provide you with a list of the main tasks an Au Pair can do, as well as a list of things an Au Pair should not do.
