Recommended Posts

Hi not the best at advertising myself but will give it a shot im 21 years old, have CS 30,31,32 health and safety at work, and qualified harvester and forwarder operator. Do not currently have climbing or aerial rescue.


Been working on harvesting sites for over a year now, felling mainly softwoods of a mixed diameter, some big stuff! snedding, cross cutting, brashing and all the usual stuff. Worked along side winches and other machiney.


Looking to get into the climbing side of things now, utility or domestic either or. Purchased my own climbing kit last year and have been learning of my dad(15 years experience, now surveyor for SSE) for the past year, and have built up a good basic skills knowledge, looking to now progress to the next step with training.


Any employers out there that would be willing to give me a start or even couple days here and there, to help out and see what its all about!! Being in a lucky situation of my parents staying in Forfar and me coming from Stranraer I am able to travel/work anywhere form Dundee, Perth etc to Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway. Have my own saws, PPE etc.


Cheers, any help at all would be great.
