Job description

Occasional, live-in house and dog sitter required in Birmingham. We are a couple in our mid 50’s and enjoy overseas travel. We have a comfortable modern house with a large secure garden and a very much loved seven year old well behaved dog.

Ideally we are looking for a friendly retired couple, one of whom should be able to drive, who are able to look after our home and dog whilst we are away. You should be well organised, trustworthy and reliable. Capable of undertaking minor duties such as watering plants, collecting post. Old fashioned common sense would be ideal. Non-smokers only. No house cleaning or gardening necessary as we have people to perform both. Our dog’s safety and wellbeing is absolutely paramount and is more important to us than anything else. You should therefore be a dog lover and be prepared to look after her as if she were your own.

Have tried house sitting companies but found them to be non - personable and lacking in continuity. Looking to build a long term working relationship. We have known our existing sitters, now retiring, for over 20 years. They are now like family to us.

References etc essential.
