We are looking for an aupair, the ideal person would be over 21 with some experience of living away from home. Ideally we are looking for someone to stay six months but would consider a shorter period of time. You must be entitled to a Working Holiday Visa. We have previously had an Aupair from www.perthdemipair.com and unless you are familiar with the pay, duties etc. of aupairs it would be a good idea to take a look at that site and other aupair sites so you know what you are getting into :laugh: We are advertising here too so please take a look....
