    I hope this is the right forum for this-

    So I'm currently au pairing with a family in Switzerland. Unfortunately I have to leave sooner than planned and they've given me partial responsibility for finding my replacement.

    An au pair is a nanny. I take care of just 1 four year old girl. 35 hours a week, £520 a month, and you get plenty of perks such as having just about everything bought for you; your own room; internet; food is paid for; flights are paid for.

    You get 1 day off a week of your choice, and a sunday every fortnight. The little girl is at school 2 days a week, and playgroup for a few hours on wednesdays.

    The house is in Wollerau, a very affluent town, just 30 minutes from the city of Zurich. Access to just about everything.

    Responsibilities include playing with the girl, helping her get dressed, helping prepare meals and occasional cleaning.

    Let me know if you are seriously interested. You'd need to begin roughly 10th May.

    How do you make friends being an Au Pair? I have never understood this as you can't go out, get drunk, meet a lady and bring her back to theirs can you? :confused:

    Meet friends, yes. Pulling girls to bring back to yours for the night, no.

    Hi, yes I might be interested.
    How long would it be for? Do you speak german and english with the family?
    My last exam is the 11th of may, so I would be free after that.
