Contact: Steve and Gerry Harold
M: 07557 094754
Chainsaw Operatives and Forestry Labourers Required The job will be working prominently in Chestnut coppice producing agricultural fencing material. Period is from now through to March 2021, and possibly longer, if workload requires. Work is centered around Petworth, West Sussex and nearly always within a 15 mile radius.

Training given, but must be self-employed, organised, be able to tolerate graft, able to budget... and generally awesome!

This is a very physically demanding job so you will need to have the self-drive if not the initial physical fitness. You need your own transport too.

If you know how to use a saw and cut to spec then you will be fine but don’t expect to earn loads of money if you can’t. Your earnings will be between £100 - £200 plus per day on piece rate if you have the skill required.

I’m happy for anyone with the basic skills to give it a go as everyone has to start somewhere, but if you can’t get out of bed and/or give it 100% then you will not get on with myself the rest of the lads.

We also need people are willing to commit within reason to full time.

Experience with purpose-built forestry machines also useful. Petworth, West Sussex
