Well, what can I say, tree management, and litter picking, also 21k tops

I think your get very few applicants. 

 

But I’d like to be proved wrong.

 

Cheers

Welcome to East Anglia.

Exactly! With many new companies and  housing authorities  setting up looking for external work it’s a race to the bottom business wise as well at the moment.

same day service even.

Frankly, and I am not ranting - Arb has seen it's whole skill set devalued over the last ten years, a PTI gets a van, a tablet n 26 K a year basic, why are climbers not getting that ? So yr gonna have PTI then go litter picking fr 21k ? When the job is slack ? K 

 

( for those -PTI is Professional Tree Inspector, a Lantra award such as needed for the campus tree management they should have in place )
