Looking for apprenticeship or experience, Scottish Borders

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I am currently working as a self employed electrician, however am desperate for a career change to the Arb/forestry industry. I have experience on the saw, working with a friend of mine on a few brashing jobs, and have my own saw and PPE, along with my own van. I am based in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders however will travel for work quite happily. I am looking for either some experience as I work towards gaining my tickets, or the opportunity of an apprenticeship or trainee groundsman position, with the intention of progressing towards a climber. Any and all pointers or help would be massively appreciated.


Thank you in advance


J. Russell
