What salary do I offer my aupair?
Usually the money paid to au pairs is called pocket money and this is because
is part of the family on a cultural exchange program and not an employee.
Qualified British nannies are employees and therefore subject to taxation.
The following is an approximate level of payment, but of course if you are one of
our registered families the best thing would be to contact us and we will advise
you depending on the circumstances, especially if the position offered is a
mother's help as that falls somewhere between an au pair+ and a nanny.
1- In Europe live-in au pairs´ pocket money is around €3.50 per hour and
that includes 2 babysits per week.
2- In the USA a foreign aupair gets $140 per week for a 40 hour week.
3- British nannies expect to earn net around £200 - £300 per week
in the UK so to travel abroad, they would expect a higher salary. But that
depends on the location (you might get a good rate if you live in a hot country!).
4- In the USA, nanny salaries are more defined as follows:
A- 18 - 20 years old, or less than 2 years verifiable childcare experience - $250-$350
live-in; $7-10 hour live-out.
B- 21 years or older, 2 or more years verifiable childcare experience, no prior nanny
experience (note that college education puts you to the higher end of the
salary range) - $300-$450 live-in; $8-15 hour live-out.
C- Two or more years of nanny experience, and/or a college degree in a child related.
field - $350-600 live-in; $9-15 hour live-out, higher in major metro markets.
