For UK applicants coming to us via Erasmus Charter Universities, to do the childcare diploma option, you can earn up to 430 Euros per month on top – please check with your University.

Family work

You will be paid 11 euros NET per hour during your first year with the agency in addition to receiving all of the other benefits associated with being an employee.
You are paid for the hours you work during the school terms. Please note French children have eight weeks of school holidays between September and June plus a number of other vacation periods during the year.

Part-time work : Teaching English jobs

You can earn between 15 and 20 euros NET per hour with a teaching post which varies depending on the number of children you will work with.

Hours

In your working contract the hours you are required to work are clearly stated. If there are changes in these hours, such as working occasional extra hours, they will be recorded via our online extra-net and re-imbursed accordingly.

Transparency

Within your pay, there are no hidden surprises. We quote our salaries as net to avoid confusion about what ends up in your pocket!

For example, auto-entrepreneurs receive a gross salary and so are required to pay their own taxes (about 25%) as well as take care of the associated administration that comes with being your own boss.

Please note, in France up until 31 December 2017, income tax is not removed at source and so is calculated and invoiced the following year based on the amount you have earned.
