Thank you for your interest in joining StudentCo!

Please note that we are currently only accepting applicants who are available for pet sitting between 16 December 2019 and 2 January 2020. If you will not be in Gauteng over the above dates, please DO NOT PROCEED with an application at this time.

We are always looking for animal lovers to join our family!

In a nutshell, working for StudentCo means that you will look after our clients' homes and pets while they are away, either visiting every day or staying over. Your duties include all pet-care duties, as well as some basic home-care duties. You will earn between R490 and R1 330 per family per week, depending on the service.

StudentCo prides itself on being a top pet-care provider: We have 10 years of experience and a large client base throughout Gauteng. Working for StudentCo means working for an organisation that truly cares about you, and truly cares about animals.

To learn more about us, please do feel free to browse through our website.

The application process works as follows:

  • Completing the application form below
  • Sending some supporting documents
  • Passing a reference check
  • Passing a test about StudentCo rules and veterinary emergencies
  • Sending through a police clearance certificate (easy how-to-get steps will be given to you later).
  • Starting off as a pet sitter!
  • Before you complete the application form, be sure to have the contact details (incl. email addresses) of 3 references ready. Note that friends, romantic partners and family members can NOT be used as references. Some suggested references: Lecturers, employers, teachers, coaches, people who know you from charity work, people you have done pet sitting for, etc.

    As our name suggests, please note that we are a student-only organisation and only accept new applicants who are currently registered University/college students or grade 12 learners with provisional Uni/college acceptance for next year. Proof of your registration/acceptance will be requested at a later stage.

    You will see that the form below is very basic - more details (e.g. your experience with animals) will be requested at a later stage of the application.

    Let's get started!

    Step 1 of 3

    • Please only apply should you comply with all requirements - all information will be verified.

      Part 1 - Tell us who you are!

      We are currently ONLY accepting applicants available for the 2019/20 Festive Season. Please DO NOT PROCEED with an application at this time unless you can confirm the above.
      This is due to the possibility of veterinary visits.
      All new applicants must be students. We do not accept individuals who are still completing grade 1 - 12 or have completed their studies. Proof of your registration as a student will be requested at a later stage of your application - please do not proceed if you cannot provide this. Part-time and correspondence students are welcome to apply. EXCEPTION: If you are 18 years or older, currently in grade 12 and can provide documentation that you will be studying in the new academic year (e.g. provisional acceptance letter), please feel free to proceed.
      As we operate in Gauteng, all applicants must live in Gauteng most of the time :). Res/commune students are welcome to apply.
    • Onwards and forwards!
