Things to consider

All of our work is outdoor based we work in all conditions and it's important that we get our jobs completed in the time frames that have been allowed for the job. The work is physical and can be tiring and you will need to be self-motivated at times to ensure that you are able to work to the high standards set by the company. That said the work can be very rewarding and you will be alongside a good team that will help you and push you to become the best you can be.

Some weekend work and call out work will be available at busy times. Agreed rates of pay will be written into your contract to cover this.
