Afternoon all, just wanted to through some feelers out before I do a proper search and ring around. I'm due to start a level 3 arb course at bicton college in september, but need to do 45 days work experience. With a company local to North Devon I live in ilfracombe but have my own transport. What I really want to do is work everyday I'm not at college (if I can earn some money doing it, the 45 days is unpaid) I've been offshore for the last 7 years so a change of industry for me want to be closer to home. I'm good with knots a grafter and can work hard! Im 25 so you know your getting someone mature. Been working with saws for a few years looking after grandparents land just firewood ground maintenance hedges etc. always maintained my own saws and sharpened my own blades anyone that can point me in some directions would be massively appreciated.
Hi all. I’m just posting on this group hoping to get some work experience in the North Devon area. Im currently in my last 12 months of service in the British Army (24 Commando royal engineers). I’ve done over 12 years and I’m after a change hence the leaving. I’m currently based in Chivenor (between Barnstaple and braunton). I have the following tickets : - NPTC across cut maintenance - NPTC felling up to 380mm - NPTC felling over 380mm - NPTC Aerial rescue - NPTC aerial chainsaw use - Level 3 certificate in Arb (tree ID, Tree planting, tree planting aftercare, tree pests and diseases) -Emergency first aid at work + Forestry I have some tickets but I’m lacking experience. I’m after weekend work and I’m willing to work over my leave periods (3 weeks Xmas leave, 2 weeks Easter leave..). Next summer i will be out the forces and it would be great to have gained a bit of experience before then so I can look for full time employment. Originally a Geordie (Newcastle) I’m looking at settling in the North Devon area - but I’m also happy to travel. Any help or steer in the the right direction is appreciated. Regards patty
