In Melbourne, Looking for Sponsorship.

Recommended Posts

Good Day,


I'm looking to escape the hell that I've found myself in as I seem to have ended up on a EWP operators career path, when all I really want to do is climb trees.


I've just relocated to Melbourne after having spent the last two years working for Asplundh in NZ, where my route into bucket work began, and I made the mistake of joining a company that works entirely from EWP's doing line clearance. Which pays the wage but I'm now beginning to find mind numbingly boring.


So as such I was wondering if anyone knows of any good companies, private or commercial, that would provide me with the opportunity to become re-acquainted with what I got into this industry in the first place?


The main kicker is I am 3 months into a working holiday visa as it stands, and would very much like to stay in Australia, however I am led to believe that all my NPTC tickets i gained in England (and I never went the Certificate in Arb route) are of little to no value when applying for skilled residency over here. Is this correct? And are there any companies out there with enough umpf to get me sponsored?


thanks in advance for any help.

Daryls tree care and surgery have an opening coming up. Based in Box Hill South. Email them! Ive worked there for the last year or so but I'm leaving very soon.


Your tickets do help a lot mate. Level 3 over here is worth trying to get at somepoint

We are an Adelaide based company and are always on the look out for good climbers. We do offer sponsorship to the right candidates and as I'm a climber from the UK but now in management I understand all the NPTC Certs and also oversee visa applications so as long has you have the right Certs to do the job we employ.
