utilities newcastle upon tyne

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm trying to find out which are the main companies doing powerline and general utilities or roadwork in newcastle? its for a friend of mine who wants to get into tree work but has no experience and has just booked himself on cs 30 &31 and is struggling to find someone to give him a chance or work experience. So i thought a bigger company which might also put him through more courses as well might be worth a try??

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated

 

Cheers

 

Rob

Full time jobs even for experienced guys are hard to come by up here and paid a lot less than jobs down south. I'm not being pessimistic for the sake of it either, I'm from the south and am still looking up here despite having been offered jobs down south. If your mate is adament that its what he wants to do then I would definately say I wish him well but from experience it seems to be near on impossible without every ticket known to man and loads of experience.

Thanks everyone although it doesn't sound too promising! Oh well i'll let him know what's been said and see what he wants to do from there. I know the feeling though especially about money as i'm in cornwall where wages are generally lower than the rest of the country. Although I've found a good tree surgeon who i climb for a couple of days a week and i try to find my own work for the rest of the time. Its not easy!!

 

Cheers
