More Information

Former Melbourne resident seeking a house sit while catching up with friends and relations in Melbourne for a period of approximately 6 weeks. I have a by-annual Alumni luncheon to attend on 21st November 2018. Whilst house sitting I have looked after dogs, cats, birds, fish, snakes & lizards. I have enjoyed house sitting stints in Victoria, NSW and Queensland and overseas. I am a 78 year old widow who owned my own homes in Melbourne from 1964 until I went to be a volunteer in Madang in PNG in 2000. Prior to my retirement, I was a senior member of a multinational company with a turnover in excess of a billion-dollars. In Madang, I worked as a PNG Archbishop's personal assistant and also as a Vice President for Finance & Administration at Divine Word University. I have been a member of Rotary, have helped to run a number of five day Youth Leadership Training Courses for Rotary/Save the Children Fund in PNG. In Gympie, I have assisted with the implementation of a Rotary Youth Driver Awareness Program now attended each year by the Year 11 students of all 5 high schools in the area. Was a member of Country Women’s Association which supports Kindergartens in the Villages and also Early Childhood Development. Have taught English as a 2nd Language at TAFE as a volunteer. I do have a police clearance. Currently support Little Haven Palliative Care Organisation in Gympie as volunteer. I grew up with cats, dogs and birds as part of the family home environment. As an adult, I always had large dogs (showed an Airedale, and others were crosses between Labradour, Rhodesian Ridgeback & Boxer. My last dog lived to be 17 years old. I currently live in Gympie Queensland and will be driving down to Melbourne so will need somewhere suitable to park my car. I will time my arrival in Melbourne at least a week prior to the house-sitting commitment so that we can meet in person and I can become aware of all the aspects I will be required to attend to. . A detailed personal profile and contact details of people prepared to provide references will be supplied if my application is of interest to you. As and when required I am able to provide referees in Victoria, NSW and Queensland. The parish priest of St Therese Catholic Church in Essendon, Fr. John Hannan would provide a reference for me.
I am available to house sit from 1st November to 5th December 2018
I do hope my application is of interest to you and look forward to hearing from you when the time is right.
Kind regards.
Val Jerram
