The sitters on Bubble are an incredibly diverse and talented group of people, and we know they’re ready and willing to support busy families who need other forms of help, aside from childcare. We also know that in light of COVID19, many people are looking for new ways to win more work and extra income.
This is why we’ve built our new Helpr feature on Bubble, allowing parents to post requests for other types of jobs, which local sitters can review and apply to.
Every sitter on Bubble gets the chance to opt into Helpr requests, via their profile section inside of the app.
Once opted in, these types of jobs will appear, which a sitter can apply to if it suits them.
These jobs are then booked and paid for through the app, very much like how a typical babysitting job works on Bubble.
There is no pre-defined list of jobs that a parent can request, but some examples of the types of jobs parents book using our Helpr feature are:
- Dog walking
- House sitting
- Elderly companionship
- General errands and tasks
For now, the jobs operate on a per-hour basis, using the sitter’s standard babysitting rate, however it’s very easy for parents and sitters to discuss alternative arrangements via the app, and then account for them on the job receipt before paying at the end.
We’ll continue developing this feature in the coming weeks and months, so please do send through any requests and feedback to email@example.com.
