SITTER PROFILE FORM

Last update: July, 2015

We suggest you read through our ‘Careers’ Page first, and check out our Frequently Asked Questions about joining our team.

Once you have done that to ensure that you meet our requirements, you can fill out the following profile for us as honestly and accurately as possible. Anyone found lying or exaggerating about their experience will not be considered for Island Sitters.

Please save the new file as ‘Your Name – Sitter Profile’ and email it to us as a Microsoft Word document at info [at] islandsitters [dot] com.

Please do not write in CAPS and do not delete the questions as you fill this out! 

Once that has been done you must attend a face to face meeting and Island Sitters orientation before joining our team. The date and location for the next one will be announced via email. We will contact you if you meet the criteria and we will let you know when the next Sitter Meeting is scheduled. 

You will not be considered if you do not have an up to date Police Certificate and an up to date Health Certificate.
