More information about this house sitterHi, my name is Meg. I am interested in longer term house sits (preferably 2 weeks +) on rural/farm properties within NSW or Victoria. Depending on the length of the house sit, I am happy to travel to various areas in NSW and Vic, and am not limited to my local area.
I am a professional person, previously working as a scientific technical officer, and have recently been made redundant from my position working in a senior school, where I assisted with science, food technology, agriculture and outdoor education. I am taking this opportunity to return to university (distance education) to study Environmental Science, and would love to find positions that allow me to be relatively stable for longer periods while I complete my study. This means I would be based at home most days, keep your pets company, and can keep a thorough eye on things!
I have a strong background in agriculture and horticulture, having lived and worked on farms my whole life. I previously worked for many years in plant nurseries and agricultural research as well, and was responsible for the care of all manner of animals and plants in my position at the school. I would be more than capable of maintaining any gardens required, or animals that need caring for, having experience with dogs, birds, fish, chickens, rabbits, horses, sheep, cattle, and wildlife care, among others.
I am a quiet, reliable person, non drinker, non smoker, no parties or noise. I am neat, clean and tidy and will take very good care of your home. I am very house proud, having owned my own home previously, and will leave your home in excellent shape. I am a good communicator and am happy to send you updates while you are away, on how things are going back home! I have plenty of previous experience house sitting and can provide references if required.
I do have 1 dog who I need to be accommodated with me. He is very well behaved around livestock and wildlife, having been raised and trained on farms. He is incompatible with cats, so unfortunately I cannot house sit for you if you have a cat!
You can rest assured with peace of mind that your beloved home, pets and property will be in the best of hands.
