Au Pair in Barcelona

Postby texkourgan » Thu Aug 29, 2013 8:18 am

Hello and welcome!

Working as an au pair is a great way to become familiar with another culture, discover life abroad, and/or to practice and improve a foreign language.

What advice would you give to prospective au pairs in Barcelona?

How did you find your family? Are you part of an agency? How did you find your agency – by putting up an ad or through word-of-mouth? You may use EasyExpat’s Au Pair listings in Barcelona.

How do you like the work and your family? Are you offered pocket money? What tasks are you asked to do – cleaning, cooking, or just childcare? Do you have free time?

What other activities do you like to do? Are you able to make friends? Have you had to learn the language?

Please share your experience with the other forum members. Many thanks in advance!

Hello Marion! I moved your post to the au pair in Barcelona thread so people can find your listing and share info.

I recommend the Guide to Barcelona's section on being an au pair in Spain as well as finding work in Barcelona. Also, post your CV on the site as well as searching for job offers in Spain.

Anyone else have tips? Best of luck!

I would like to encourage all of you of participate of this idea. Being au pair is an excellent idea for all those girls who are still studying, does not have a big budget to travel and want to learn a new language. I was au pair for two summers in Dublin and I still feel very grateful with my host family.
