  4. Hi. One of the companies I sub for has gone bust so looking to fill 1 or 2 days a week, though am flexible up or down. Chilled out guy that likes to get the job done. Based in SE22 but can travel within London. Been climbing nearly 3 years, doing all sorts of different works, with another 2 years on the ground. All my own kit except chainsaw. Happy and comfortable with anything except the largest fells/heavy duty rigging. Light build so good at getting out far for leggy reductions. Have my cs 30/31/38. Was promised cs 39 paid for by said company for almost 2 years but, now that they've gone bust, looks like I'm paying for it myself so I've booked it in for end of this month. For what it's worth, I've been using chainsaw in tree for as long as I've been climbing and the assessment will be just a formality. Been on £120 a day for every firm I've worked for in the last year plus, so that's what I'm looking for to start. If your interested, pop me a message and we can discuss further. Cheers, P
