  14. I got my CS30/31 in November 2016 and have been working as a groundie since. I started on the railway but I'm waiting for a PTS course which was meant to be in early January, however the company aren't very forthcoming with the dates of my course and with moving house in February I can't solely rely on them. I've been working with a local arborist on domestic jobs but he can't provide a lot of work. I'm prepared to travel within 50 miles of Sheffield for days, nights & weekends. Temp work is ideal as I do intend to go back on the railway as soon as someone sorts my PTS out but I will stay for as long as someone needs me. I don't mind the odd day or night either if it's all you can offer. I'm currently self employed and have been for years so I'd prefer not to be employed. I don't have a saw but I do have access to a 261 or 440. I had intended to be back on the railway already and with my own saws but the year isn't going my way yet.
