Really Chuffed!...........I've managed to land a job as a local technician for Rentokil Pest Control. After working in the property sector all of my working life, I lost my job in the recession, and have worked as a security guard ever since.

 

Anyhow, a random chat with a rentokil guy on a site I was working at, resulted in a name, phone call and 2 subsequent inteviews in Leeds, and I have now formal notification of employment. I feel really lucky to have found a company that are prepared to put me through the relevant qualifications, and offer me a decent renumeration package.

 

Just goes to show that 'god loves a trier!.......and with each knock back, another opportunity potentially opens.........I suppose if you put yourselves out there...ask the questions, the next best thing could be just around the corner

 

Just thought I'd share that with you chaps........as I feel as though I've won the lottery having been involved in agricultural pest control as a hobby for over 25years!!!! :good: :good:

 

It used to cost me a shopping trip to meadow hall for the wife to get out on my permissions...... now I'l being doing it everyday......and getting paid!!!!!!!!!

Nice darts.

 

It's a sound company. Mind you, it's run by careful Scots, a shrewd and thrifty bunch :hmm:

 

 

they bought Citylink so not sure how shrewd unless they needed a way of loosing money hand over fist :hmm:

 

Sounds like a nice move but not sure how much field work you'll get won't it mostly be rats and wasps etc round urban areas?

A Scot is infinitely better than a Swiss, they're bloody mean those Swiss...

 

As for the OP, good on you for chasing up the leads and contacts and landing the job.

There'll be a range of commercial and domestic clients........not just pest eradication in towns but pest management aswell. :hmm:
