How do I become a sitter on Bubble?
Updated over a week ago

Here are the steps to becoming a sitter on Bubble:

  1. Download the app (Google Play or App Store), to create your account.

  2. Complete your Bubble onboarding through our portal as prompted. This includes an identity check, a right-to-work check for non-UK passport holders, and a reference check.

Identity Check

If you’re a British or Irish citizen, we'll need to see either of the following:

  • a British passport

  • an Irish passport or passport card

We need you to upload three photos: one of your ID, one of your face and another showing both you and your ID in the same frame. The document needs to be clearly legible, and the edges need to be within the frame.

Eligibility to work

We also may ask for Right to Work verification if you don’t hold a UK passport. For this, we'll need your share code. You can provide a screenshot of your share code along with your ID photos — please ensure this is still in date or it will be rejected.

Reference Check

For the reference check, we require two written references from a colleague, employer or educator. We cannot approve your account without these, so it is important to notify your referees that we will be contacting them.

Please note:

  • These must be character references (not factual references) from people who know you in a professional setting.

  • Please ensure that you have filled out all referee contact detail fields. We cannot accept references without a mobile number and an email address.

  • We cannot accept references from friends or family.

  • Misleading or illegitimate references will be rejected and lead to permanent removal from the app.

    3. We will then review your profile and aim to approve your account within 3 working days of your onboarding steps being completed and when both of your references have responded.

    4. Once your profile is activated, local parents can send you booking requests which you can accept or reject - all via the app.

    5. Payment is done via the app too - which is why we ask for your bank account details before you can accept a sit request.

Happy sitting!
