  1. Thanks for this. I will leave it until after Christmas in the hopes that there is a need for more hands and go to a few yards and ask. I like the idea about the cards, I may give it a try. Its hard to know what to do in regards to tickets, all the jobs I have seen require you to have both tickets and experience and the experience seems difficult to get without tickets and its hard to justify doing so many tickets without experience to get the basics nailed. I'll keep plugging away though, its definitely a career that I want. Thanks, Thomas.
  2. That's all great info, thank you. The company I have done the trials with had paid me both times which I wasn't expecting but really appreciated. I understand about there not being too much work available at the minute and hope that come the new year that there may be more. I am happy to volunteer to get experience. I want to get more tickets but in NI there are no colleges that offer any Arb related courses and there appears to be no funding, so I can only do the tickets one at a time and all fees will be paid in full by myself and as you know they aren't cheap so I don't want to be doing tickets and not be able to put them into practice, i'm worried that all the information gained will be lost by the time I get some work. I am keen to learn I don't drive at the minute but that is something I am working on and will hopefully have it sorted soon. I assumed, possibly wrongly, that people would not want to be bothered at the yard before or after. Thanks again for the help.
  3. Hi, I am on the hunt for any entry level job in Belfast, I am happy to do brush dragging/labouring to get my foot in the door but my end goal is to become a skilled climber so I am trying to get the experience I need. I am happy enough to start of doing 1 or 2 days a week on a voluntary basis. I have my CS30 and I am aiming to do more tickets but I am reluctant to fork out the money at the minute with no way of putting what I learn to good use. I have done a couple of trial days with a company but didn't hear anything back, I work hard and wasn't told anything negative on the job so I assume it was my lack of experience that has failed me here. I have also emailed all companies local to me but have not heard anything back and trainee jobs/apprenticeships seem to be non existent in Northern Ireland Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Thomas.
