jezz you boring robotic HR hack, here is how your write a want ad (yes it mine BTW)

 

First rule, no wankers
You know the deal, you should know your sh**, or at least have a good chunk of it and be prepared to learn. 
Assuming your a physically and mentally functioning adult (for a tree climber) 
Be great if you can drive.

Best you live relatively near us in xxxxxxx, no point having to work more just to pay to get to work, you kill trees for a living, least we can do is drive a bit less but run over possums when we do. 

If your the type that sucks the life out of a room, a general screw up, need mothering or thinks other people will do all the work, you should have done better at school because we get sh** done, being a consultant is a different category.

Everyone works hard, everyone gets along, we have great clients and we do a wide variety of work from camelias to big ass macs. 
We slay giants, save specimens, our work can be seen from google earth, and little kids think we are super heroes. We have fun.
We have the usual tree toys you know and probably a few you dont. I like good kit.
We find joy and coffee in what we do, we watch each others backs and nobody gets hurt, nothing gets broken. 

Now that bits damn important, nobody gets hurt, nothing gets broken.

If you dont fit, you dont stay. Days can be to long with whiners and lifes to short and it can be a hell of a lot shorter for a dumbass in this job.
Must love dogs, because only strange strange strange people dont. And you picked climbing trees for a living, your already stranger than your mum would have liked.

Me? Im the older semi broken climber/business owner who will be your chainsaw carrying ghost of xmas future if you dont come up with a better plan than climbing until your to broken to climb anymore. 

But until then, lets do some treework, because it might be a insane career choice but its the freaking best job most days.

Blah blah inspirational bs blah blah blah

Pollarding london planes for 120 a day=no chance.

You'd be desperate or a halfwit to climb in london area for that money.

Good climbers are worth 200 a day in that area considering the cost of living.
