Due to the national lockdown, we are currently not accepting new applicants and have removed our application form :(.


Thank you for your interest in joining StudentCo!

At StudentCo, we are passionate about empowering young animal lovers. As such, we invite you to apply with us if you are 18 or older and:

  • Are currently a full-time or part-time University or College student OR

  • Important! Pet sitting work is part-time but can be time-consuming. Individuals with demanding work schedules are NOT suitable as pet sitters – work with StudentCo is suited to you if you have a more flexible schedule, rather than a rigid 8 –5 job.

    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. 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.
