Au Pair in Spain: salary, working hours, holidays, etc.
The Au Pair program is a great opportunity for Au Pairs and Host Families to interact with a different culture. To ensure a productive cooperation between both parties, here are the program rules, responsibilities and other information:
The participant should work 30 hours per week - babysitting is included in these hours!
During bank holidays or if one of the children needs to stay at home because of sickness, the participant might need to work some extra hours in exchange for extra pocket money, if they work more than 30 hours a week.
Participants in Spain will have every weekend off. Some families might ask the Au Pair to work on Saturday mornings. The Host Family will provide 1 week of paid vacation for a 6-months stay or 2 weeks of paid vacation for a 12-months stay. Mention all these details in the agreement.
