Homesitter application form

We recruit fit and active, mature, responsible people who would enjoy occasional opportunities to move in and care for homeowners’ properties and pets while the owners are away. Many homesits include the care of pets, so a liking for dogs and/or cats and some hands-on experience is a great asset (but you may not take a pet on a home sit).

We require applicants to be generally available throughout the year but not looking for regular salaried employment. Whilst we have no age limits, our homesitters are mainly in their 50s to 70s having retired from a wide range of occupations – and all are securely settled in their own homes.

We are looking for more homesitter applicants and would be delighted to hear from you. However, to avoid disappointment, we would advise you to read all the pages on our website detailing what home and pet sitting offers, our rules, frequent questions etc before proceeding.

Please answer all questions as fully as possible (all fields are mandatory*), telling us about yourself – and your partner if you wish to be accompanied. 

All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Any problems, please call us on 01296 630 730.
