Demipair IWHP

Demipair / Aupair Program

Demi Pair/ Aupair Gold Coast in Australia

A Demi pair is a part-time Au Pair, normally on a 12 month Working Holiday Visa or Student Visa.


Demi pairs usually start from around 6:30 to 8:00 am and are then free to do what they want until around 14:00 pm daily.

They will then commence working as a demi pair in the afternoon.


Demi pairs live with a family and provide 20 hours of work per week in exchange for their accommodation and meals.

An Au pair is also called a Live-in Nanny.

This is more suitable for people on a working holiday visa as the hours are longer.


An Au pair earns an allowance by helping with the housework and taking care of the children while living with the family.


What the family provides, normally, is your own room (in the host family’s home) plus 3 meals a day, as well as a small wage.


The pay depends on the workload of the family. You can earn from $ 180 to 300 per week.


There are also families that will offer up to $ 400 per week depending on their needs.


The average help time is between 30-40 hours per week.

Au pairs do require a higher level of English and a drivers license may be riquired for pick ups and drop offs at school.


4 reasons why you should choose being a Demi Pair in Australia.

01

Language benefit

Living and working with an Australian family can have a lot of benefits, such as improving your English conversation skills.


The more you interact with the family, the faster your English conversation skills will improve, and the faster your conversion skills improve, the more confident you will become in interaction with others.

02

Share house vs Demi pairs

Choosing a share house where only people from your country live may be comfortable, but it is the same as living in shared accomodation in your own country.


As a Demi pair you can learn from the family such as up bringing, customs, food and lifestyle.

03

Second family

Spending 3 months with a Demi pair family and getting to know them can sometimes make saying good bye difficult.


Children get used to the Demi pair and beg them to not leave, the host mother and father might ask you to extend your time with them.


It’s good to have a relationship where you can stay connected, even after you have finished.

04

Saving Money

Yes, money, when travelling money can become a big concern, and what matters most when you are travelling or studying abroad is the cost of living.


Rent and food expenses will always be the biggest expenses, as they are paid for and bought daily or weekly.


However, if you choose being a Demi pair, you can save on both of these, which gives you more money to spend on yourself or fun things to do in Australia.

Extension is possible. It is an agreement made between you(Demiapir / Aupair) and your family.
Yes and No. You have to be home before your work starts during the working week.    However just let your host family know what time you will be home if you are going to be late so they don’t worry. If it’s your day off and you are going out and will be home late tell the family you won’t  need dinner. Please  tell your family in the morning so they don’t prepare food for you. For Demipairs/Aupair, if you are staying out much later, like after 22.00, please stay at your friend’s house or  other accommodation as families  do not want the kids to wake up.
Yes, but you must give two weeks notice to your family and IWHP. And we don’t refund the demipair fee. See our refund policy.
If you are only doing Demi pair or Auapair, we will place you on the Gold  Coast or Brisbane somewhere. But if you attend a language school or if you already have a part-time job, we will try to arrange a host family who is located within 60 minutes from your school or work place by public transport or bicycle. Please let us know your situation when you apply.
Yes, we will help you to get a Blue Card but you have to apply from their website
At I.W.H.P we will place you with a friendly Australian host family that has been carefully selected. If you have any specific requirements such as religion, medical condition etc, please note that information into our application form. You can’t choose family number, age and gender. We only consider above specific requirements.
Our I.W.H.P staff are available to help you if you have any aupair/Demi pair questions or problems
