About the Company

Gristwood and Toms Ltd. have recently undergone a major review of staff earnings.

We studied available salary trends within our sector, comparing these with the ‘real time’ achievable averages of our own pay structures. We also considered the differences affecting earning potential due to variation of contractual rates in London and the South East.

This study has guided a significant change to the day rates we are able to pay across all levels of competence, along with a notable revision to the percentage allocations to certain contract areas. This ensures a greater opportunity for our teams to achieve or exceed their revised day rates.

We are confident that our new pay structures, first class working conditions and unrivalled investment in our staff, equipment, and facilities, makes Gristwood and Toms Ltd. the leading UK employer in our industry.

Come and join one of the country’s leading and progressive arboricultural companies.

Founded in 1974 Gristwood & Toms has grown in to one of the largest and best equipped arboricultural companies in the UK. Employing over 170 staff, we pride ourselves in having sufficient resources and expertise to provide a comprehensive arboricultural service to all sectors regardless of scale..
