Are you looking for an outside job with variety and excitement? Have you ever considered a job as an Arborist?
Bet you haven’t, but maybe you should. What is an Arborist? Arborists plant and remove trees, prune branches and treat diseases in trees. Chances of getting a job as an arborist in NZ are good at the moment due to high demand for their services and a shortage of trainees. Trainees can expect to be paid between $19-$22 per hour, while trained arborists can earn between $22-$35 per hour. Once trained Arborists can work anywhere in the world.
A local Arborist firm has offered an Upper Hutt College student the opportunity for work experience with their small family owned company, with the chance that this will become a full-time apprenticeship.
They are looking for someone:
- Physically fit, as this can be demanding work.
- Not afraid of heights.
