Samurai Tree care

Looking for Full time employment, Inverness, Scotland Experienced groundsman

Recommended Posts

I'm a young Arborist who has been self-employed sub-contracting for the past 4 and a bit years. More recently, I have established myself as Samurai Tree Care and have been getting a few of my own jobs in. I trained and worked in Hertfordshire, but now I'm moving to Inverness for a better life.

I would ideally like to walk into full-time employment. I'm very comfortable and responsive as a groundsman and have previously been involved in small scale forestry. I started climbing a while back but only gained the speed and efficiency more recently, I'm still a bit rough around the edges, so I would like to get more experience to better myself. I do love the forestry side, so will be open to any offer of hand felling forestry. I don't hold any large machine tickets at the moment but would be completely open to it in the near future.


Full CV is available at request.

Hope to hear from any employers or guys working in the area, :thumbup1:

Could really use any help.

Cheers guys,

Ben Bruce

Hi Guys

Just a situation update, its now only 6 weeks until I will be moving to the Inver Ness area, the house down here has been sold, so there is no chance of it falling through. (unless the bloke buying pulls out unexpectedly)

and I will be revising any offers of work I may have had. If there is any one already in the area I would love to hear from you.
