About the job

We would like to take on a full time lead climber to join our friendly team of staff.
At Anglo Trees Ltd, we like to offer something different to the regular hours based tree companies. You essentially dictate your own working day from 6.30am till 3pm. We do set a minimum target for the team but after that you take 15% each on whatever you do past that. We give you the option to come back to our yard, tip and leave when you are done, which we believe is very helpful for those with young families (school/nursery pickups) and those who just want to have a bit of an afternoon to themselves. Parking on site at our secure shared yard free of charge.
We also operate our own unique paternal/maternal leave scheme where if you have just had a child then we essentially pay you 2 weeks of your basic wage so you can spend time with your partner/child etc. (subject to conditions of time at company)
As with being fully employed with Anglo Trees Ltd, you will recive 21 days holiday plus bank holidays paid at your dayrate. We are very flexible with holiday requests and last min or emergency time off is rarely an issue.
For Climbers, we are looking for somebody with enough experience to be able to reduce, prune/pollard etc the vast majority of tree types, be able to use tablets for risk/vehicle assessments, correctly fill out paperwork whilst working within the boroughs of Harrow, Brent and Herts County. Other boroughs will also be covered at certain times of the year.
For any staff member we require someone to be able to communicate effectively with the climbers/groundsman whilst performing the standard tasks of chipping brush/logging etc, be able to take responsibility of site set up and be able to maintain a safe working environment.
We provide all PPE and equipment and have a range of up to date transits, lorries and chippers.

Preferred Skills

For climbers, Ideally we are looking for a fully qualified climber with all the relevant qualifications ie ariel rescue cs38, cs 39 chainsaw operations up a tree etc. Because of COVID we are also interested in those who are looking to do these qualifications but have not been able to(although you must have experience and a good understanding of climbing).
