  1. Yes unfortunately it is. Just missed out on buying a belt rake from Alviti. Our client doesnt want us working on steep banks and we have to collect as if it were a meadow. We might have to do it when nobody is looking 😉
  2. Morning all. Has anyone got available to hire, a bank mower with belt rake? We need one for a job a couple of days at a time for every 2-3 weeks until mid-november ish. Tried Alviti's already and a couple other but no rake. We are in Somerset, happy to travel an hour or so to pick up. Any help help greatly appreciated. Cheers Jim
  3. Tree Surgeons Bristol - L&M Tree Services WWW.LMTREESERVICES.COM I use these guys, great service there operator really useful too.
  4. Hi All We need more people required to join our team. We are looking for a couple of extra hands on a grounds maintenance contract, General stuff, strimming, spraying, mowing, watering trees etc. Also we get the odd project such as small runs of fencing ( all types) or landscaping. It's a well managed, high end client with realistic time expectations. Based in Cannington, Bridgwater. Open to all skill sets, preferable full-time PAYE but could run a short-term contract with a labour only sub-contractor. Lots of opportunities for personal and career development. Private health care included for PAYE. Contact by email for further information. [email protected] Thanks Jim

  6. Does anybody know of anywhere in the South West that hires out shredders? I'm thinking smaller tow alongs rather than Doppstadt giant, or compost machine. Its for all those bits you wouldn't want to put through a chipper, fine hedge clippings etc we have nowhere to have a fire so thats not an option. Thanks Jim
  7. We are recruiting see website for details. www.sedgemoortreeservices.co.uk

  8. R2 is the register of tree work operatives http://www.r2register.co.uk/home or was not sure if its still going but there is a list of job descriptions that we have put a pay scale to and defined the criteria for few of the the more open ended criteria. The idea for us everyone is either working towards the next level or happy with the money they are on, and gives me a baseline to work to when asked for a pay rise. There are several separate enhancements to add descresionary payments when someone you feel deserves more but doesn’t fit into the criteria. An easy and fair way to bench mark guys and give them something to aim for. Should be a link below for an example. Cheers Jim Job Description - Craftsman Tree Worker PDF.pdf
  9. Fair point, and I fully understand. I have and will (future good subbies) offered a zero hour contract to help with this scenario, and get them in a uniform without breaching A35 rules for tax liability etc, it would in my opinion be better for both parties but giving essentially the same pick up and put down as required/available principles yet be PAYE and entailed to some of the company benefits.
  10. The problem were having is finding staff not keeping them but I wouldn’t want to lose any. We are always looking to improve our working conditions in general taking the Richard Branson approach of “ look after your staff and they will look after your customers” ( or something similar). We buy them the best PPE, through a team decision, Protos helmets with SENA, air stream boots, husqvarna Technical extreme trousers. We give a clear clear progression/pay scales based on the R2 but modified for us so everybody knows when & how to get a pay rise. A 6 hour on site pricing scheme, for the bulk of our work so less rushing to get home and reduced time pressures. A basic bonus scheme on larger jobs if the guys want to work over or make up a man day etc and save time on a job we share out the saving between them. Everyone gets an extra days holiday for every year worked as a loyalty reward. Everyone gets a paid day off to the Arbshow because we think its important to keep upto date and keep an interest. Bags of overtime if wanted especially in the winter months some of our guys doubled there wages this month, through call outs and double time etc Provide training above the needs of the business to help with career progression/pay rise or maintain interest. Currently looking at a profit share or enhanced pension contribution still discussing with our accountant although both option appear to be quite straight forward. This has been developed over the years to help make it nice place to work and to stop good guys leaving. I think a sense of ownership is very important regarding breakages and lost time incidents, ( we tend to lose small items of kit on site) peer pressure is far better than management pressure so a profit share is definitely on the cards. I’m not sure I’d ever reward a subby the same way as employed staff as I think that would send out the wrong message, we just say thank you and pay them straight away, the extra 40% is more than enough in my mind. In principle I don’t like using subcontractors but with the lack of applicants to our vacancies we have little choice. The subbies that are any good either get a job ( on the books ) either with us or someone else or decide to start there own bona fide business. I have offered a PAYE job to the current subby but he seems reluctant to commit. Fingers crossed no ones thinking of leaving!
