Full time Climber

Job Description

Hi there

We - Seil und Beil Baumarbeiten - are a small treecare-crew doing treeclimbing only in Trier, located in the western parts of Germany, close to Luxembourg. You'll get all the company details down here at the end. We are looking for an experienced climber to join the team. We have a kind of "international climbers join the crew" thing going on for four years now, with arborists from the States, UK, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Isreal, Netherlands, Croatia, Denmark joining and becoming friends. Right now (as in April24) the crew is a German-USA-Croatia-French-Netherlands-Ireland-UK-mix.

One of our current international arborists is going to leave end of June 2024, his position can be filled. You can either do parttime or fulltime, work&travel, temporary work visa...whatever suits your plans best. All details can be discussed once we are in contact. We have experience with non-German guys joining the crew and are happy for any international exchange. For EU-citizens the administration to get you started is very easy, for non-EU I'd need to consult the accounting guys for each individual case to figure out the details. Its doable. 

What we are looking for:

- experienced climber, trained and skilled in all aspects of proper professional treecare. We are a kind-of "climbing only"-company, we hardly use a boom truck. You need to be fit in climbing, SRT, dDRT, spikes.

- skilled in proper treecare, how to prune, maintain, and cut trees of all sizes and species

- skilled in removal on spikes / spurs as well as technical rigging

- ISA-certification, EuropeanTreeWorker,... would be very beneficial

- fluent in English or German.

- fill a position as lead climber, which means you would be in the trees 3-5 days a week, depending on the scheduled jobs (and your commitment in working hours of course)

- job available from July 2024 onwards

- no cowboys, no machos, no "I have the bigger balls here"-attitude. We try to have a low hierarchy and professional and safe work place. Helmets and PPE at all times. 

What we offer:

- the complete range of treecare and treework, from pruning tiny fruit trees to reduction of oaks, bigger technical removal, tree name it we do it

- no hedges, no landscaping, treeclimbing only

- full PPE, pretty high standard on safe work environment, professional (but fun) crew and work. We do wear helmets and chainsawpants /boots all time, no excuses.

- nice crew of 11, all easy guys / girls, no cowboys, no machos. All more on the left side of society.

- competitive wages with full benefits: full healthcare, bonuses, paid sick leave and paid holidays

- wage depending on skills and working contract, fulltime up to 3200EUR/month gross income plus 28 paid holidays (fulltime) and additional national holidays

- There is an fully furnished apartment set up pretty close to our yard (within biking distance) which is ready to be taken over. Rent can be deducted from the gross income, saving you some taxes. 

Looking for experienced climber - parttime, fulltime, just a temporary stay, work&travel

Who we are:

We are small professional treecare business. We focus on treeclimbing jobs only and value high skills in proper treecare and arborist practice. I'm more than happy to answer any additional questions.

We are a crew of 9 employees and additional contract climbers in total, 3 trucks, 2 chippers. Most of the time we work on a two-team-schedule, but do bigger jobsite with the fullcrew on site. We do private and public jobs and run a 5 day week schedule. We only do trees, no hedges, no landscaping. We do climb every day, hardly any platform/boomtruck work. We speak english and german. We can provide any equipment except your own basic PPE. If you prefer a fresh set of PPE we can provide it though. Ropes, helmets, saws can all be provided of course. We run the husky T450ixp and the Stihl MSA161 in the trees, Stihl fuel saws on the ground.

We have a nice crew, we have a ping pong table, a firepit and good spritis .
