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:
 
Au Pair salary Spain

Working hours

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. 
 

Pocket money

The family should pay the participant about 70 € a week if they live in the countryside, and 80 € a week if they live in a city, which makes 280 - 320 € per month. 
 

Time off and holidays

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

 
 

 

Language course

Participants should attend a language course to improve their knowledge of Spanish. The Au Pair’s daily schedule needs to allow them to join the classes.
 
The participant is responsible to cover the expenses of the course. The Host Family can support the Au Pair with some costs if they are willing to, though it’s not their official responsibility. 
 

What else?

  • The participant is responsible for arranging the insurance for Spain. If the Au Pair gets an additional health, liability and accident insurance they will have to cover the costs.
