Looking for Nanny/Au Pair

I am searching for a (preferably native Swiss German or German speaking) nanny/au pair to work with our family either part-time or full-time (live-in is possible). Most importantly you must be available in the afternoons/early evenings and occasionally nights and weekends. In addition to childcare, you will also be responsible for some light cleaning and cooking (we are vegan) . We are living in Pfäffikon SZ and have 2 girls, aged 7 months and 3.5 years old. Please send me a private msg if you are interested.

Sorry, but a German/Swiss German speaking au pair is not possible. See the requirements for au pairs.

Re: Looking for Nanny/Au Pair

Thanks for the clarification - I haven't had a nanny/au pair before and thought the difference was based on years of experience, not language. Although I would prefer a German-speaking nanny, I would be open an english-speaking au pair as well.

Can't have that either.

"The host family and the Au Pair can not have the same mother tongue, be related in any kind of way or have the same nationality"

Nannies are not affected by this, only au pairs.

You should also check, if you have a B permit, whether you canton allows you to have an au pair. Some cantons restrict these to C permit holders only.

Re: Looking for Nanny/Au Pair

Yes, I understood that. It doesn't need to be their native language, but they must be able to at least conversationally speak either German or English or we wouldn't be able to communicate at all.

Re: Looking for Nanny/Au Pair

The au pair is with you partly to learn a Swiss language which in your part of the country will be German. That's why you're paying for a language course for them.
