Hi all, Would appreciate some straight talking from you; feel free to "tell me how it is." Basically, I'm looking to move out of my IT job and into Arb work. I'm not a spring chicken any more being in my late 20's, but still fit and enjoy physical work more than being sedentary. Anyway, I was wondering what challenges I might face if I try to approach some local Arb businesses, and also what the best route in for me might be? I'm based in South Yorks and have looked at who's local from the Arb Association website so have a few numbers I could call, but not sure the best way to approach. Plus, it's not like my CV/previous employment correlates with Arb work in general so might have a few confused looks my way. I am aware of all the tickets that are required to be an Arborist, but my attitude is to not run before I can walk so-to-speak so looking for some groundie work to get a feel for the industry first. Staying in IT is going to be something for me to fall back on if my endeavours don't pan out. Best way I can explain it is that my interests have changed as I've gotten older and want to try Arb work. Thanks, QF.
