Become a House Sitter

House sitting is a great way to explore new surroundings, break up the usual daily routine and to supplement any income you may have. 

Housesitters Limited are always looking to increase our base of existing sitters to meet customer demand. We place a great deal of emphasis on developing excellent relationships with our sitters who become part of the Housesitters family and we are keen to meet more people who would be suited to this type of work.

House sitting doesn’t appeal to everyone, especially if you are looking for a regular income or if you are just looking for accommodation, however it is a great way to see different parts of the UK and to meet some lovely Clients and their pets.  House sitting is very flexible and you can work as much or as little as you wish.  We are pleased to hear from recently retired individuals or couples who might like the variety and responsibility which house sitting offers.

Are you the sort of person who …

  • Loves animals ?
  • Would like complete freedom to choose how many assignments you wish to undertake?
  • Who would like to travel and experience new environments ?
  • Is looking for occasional employment ?
  • Is happy to be away from home ?
  • Is fit and well and who enjoys walking ?
  • Has their own car ?
  • Is used to looking after their own home ?

If this sounds like you, Housesitters Limited would love to hear from you.

It is sometimes very difficult to leave them behind when their owners return’
