So why not just go up to the job site and ask for the boss?

Isn’t that showing more hustle that hanging around at a distance

 looking odd?

This is more likely to get a result than watching in saw gear, would think that was weird enough to be Scottish cleaning services!

Hi all 


So let's see what lovely replies I get this time. 😉 


Just a quick question really about gaining experience,


I'll be gaining my cs30/31 tickets after xmas and in the meantime I've been asking around for any groundie/help work I can take on.


Im offering myself up for free as I am brand new and just greatful for the opportunity, but alot of places are asking that I have experience already.


How do I gain experience if I need experience to work?


Anything else I can do to boost my chances?


Or should I wait until I have my tickets so I'm a bit more useful?


Sidenote: knock off the 'Don't do it and the job is shit' messages, thanks👍 


To add:

I should have said.


I've emailed several big, small and one man band companies and asked in a few arb/forstry fb groups.



Just a thought, but have you tried speaking to a few folk on social media? There's quite a few female owned/led Arb businesses out there that are doing well. Maybe try and get a bit of networking going?

I said before you have no chance to get that type of work , even if someone employs you ,that will not last, this is toxic masculinity work end of story.Good luck to you any way!

Think you’re living in the past a bit there mate, there’s no shortage of women in Arb these days, and some of them are doing pretty good out of it
