  10. Hi, I recently passed my 38 and 39, and I am looking for any odd shift to fill out my weeks. I have experience as a groundsman and consider myself switched on and competent. I would be happy to do ground work or any climbing jobs. I'm a new climber so in need of practise but as with anything in life you get out what you put in. I would add that any work I'm involved with I maintain a professional approach and manner while always trying to raise the standard of my work. I have my own top handle and ground saws, as well as my own climbing kit. If anyone could use a hand in the Glasgow area I'd be happy to hear from you. Cheers, Rich Mob:07933136253

Open to any offers of work, please get in touch, distance is not a problem provided there's enough work for it to be worthwhile. Cheers! -Dru 07789621187
  13. Hi, I have just passed my cs38 and I'm putting the feelers out for any opportunities to start climbing and gaining experience. I will be getting my cs39 in the next month or two as well. I have a good amount of experience doing ground work and I am looking to progress onto climbing. I am a reliable, competent, flexible and 'switched on' worker that is keen to continue learning and improving my skill set. I have my own ground saw, climbing kit and PPE. I'm 28 and based in Glasgow; however, for the right opportunity I would consider working further afield as I have no ties. Ideally, it would be full time opportunities but I understand this is possibly unrealistic. I am self employed so any opportunities would be considered. Thanks all, Rich Mobile: 07933136253

  16. Hi, I am looking to fill in some spare days I have at the moment. Currently, I have CS30 and CS31 tickets, my own 50cc saw and PPE.

  17. Hi, 27 year old guy looking for work experience with a business or individual in Glasgow. No tickets just yet but I own and use a chainsaw when the wood pile starts complaining too much. I have my own PPE as well. I'm prepared to volunteer my services for free until I've demonstrated that I'm going to be a reliable and solid worker. I'm not looking for any handouts just an opportunity to learn. May well be doing the Level 3 Arboriculture down at SRUC Dumfries end of Oct or might try and gain tickets individually if an opportunity presents itself. I've spent time in Norway with a chainsaw carver and some time in Sweden with a Welsh ex-forestry guy. We spent the summer building husky kennels out of the surrounding forest haha so I have plenty of experience on ground level. Thanks, Rich Mobile: 07933136253

Please get in touch on 07789621187, or pass this on if you know anyone in my region who might need a hand. Cheers Dru
