Full Time employed Housesitter/Dog Sitter with horse experience required for 3 branches of the same family with houses in Colchester, Braintree and South Suffolk.

Braintree, Essex                         Large Country house and 1 dog

Colchester, Essex                       Large Country house, dogs and 2 retired horses and chickens


The successful person will be a full -time employee ( and paid as such) – 28 days paid holiday will be included and there will be periods of no work.

Car driver essential and expenses will be paid when using own car. A car can be made available if preferred.

The ideal person will be confident with horses as the elderly equines will need checking, mucking out, turning out and bringing in from the field, making sure they are well and have hay and water.

The family dogs will need walking and feeding and of course veterinary care if required.

Cats and chickens also included in 2 of the households.

All houses have cleaners so no housework will be required apart from keeping the properties tidy during your stay.

Weekend housesitting will be required occasionally but plenty of notice for this will be given.

Very occasionally the employee may be asked to babysit, but this is not a common occurrence.

A good salary will be offered to the successful person who can provide fully checkable references.
