Becoming a Shepherd is quick and easy! All you have to do is to click on the "Become a Shepherd" tab that you'll see near the bottom of our homepage and in numerous other places on the website.
You'll then be able to start the application process, which should only take you around 10 - 15 minutes to complete. You simply fill in your details and then undergo an Identity check. This is because many of the jobs that Shepherds do, will involve entering people's properties and so we need to give our clients the peace of mind that our Shepherds can be trusted. The ID check is conducted by a specialist company and your data is stored safely and never shared with anyone else.
It can take up to 48 hours to clear the ID check and in the meantime, you'll be sent an email asking you to complete an "Introduction to Shepper" lesson. This will introduce you to the basics of being a Shepherd and will involve a test of our "Shepper" app. This only takes a couple of minutes and will instantly familiarise you with the app.
Once we've received your test inspection and your ID check clearance, we'll send you another email to let you know you've been successful. We will also ask you to download our other app - the "Shepper Jobs" app, which sits alongside the Shepper app on your phone. This is used to send job notifications to you.
Finally, you'll be sent a text message with your username and password for the Shepper Jobs app. Then all you have to do is wait for jobs to appear and accept the ones you want to do!
