Trying to get into the arb industry as a woman

Not withstanding personal circumstances which are entirely your own business, having a family business would seem to be the golden ticket.

 

"...start off dragging brash..." My advice would be avoid anyone that offers that kind of advice because it tends to indicate a general lack of respect, an inability to train and mentor and generally the sort of backward attitude that pervades amongst certain employers.

 

 

I personally don't know any person in ARB  who didnt start with dragging brash, and i khnow a lot, so you are absolutely wrong. Any noob coming in trade industries will start from the bottom, end of story, unless he is relative to employer, than its usually disaster as all good workers will leave, seen that many times. So im afraid you will start with brash dragging, sweeping and so on,even if you are genius. I still think main problem is, you are woman, no one will say  you that openly, but trust me its a main point not tickets or anything else.

What a thread...

There are women in arb...series of articles in essential arb magazine...https://www.forestryjournal.co.uk/essential-arb/ worth a look...

Ignoring all the crap....the question is how do you fund and train to get to where you want to be from where you are now ?  There are a number of 4-6 week block courses that will get you the tickets to be on the tools...but need a few quid...

I've jumped careers before, its never easy...

Can I ask what you do at present ?

 

 

I was working as a Stablehand and before that worked as a security officer for Eurotunnel. 😌
