    Hi all,

    We're on the lookout for some UK qualified operators to do some work with and on behalf of us potentially over the next few months and then in to the longer term as the contract runs on. If anyone is interested then please send me a PM. You must be fully qualified, hold a valid PfAW, be registered with companies house as either a sole trader, LTD company etc and be suitably experienced. Potential long term contracts using a multitude of different roles from surveying, inspections, 3D modelling & volumetric surveys. Thought we'd see if there were any takers on here!! Thanks :)

    Sole traders are not registered at Companies House, only limited companies. They are registered as sole traders with HMRC.

    PFAW Holder
    BNUC-S Qualified

    You may get a better response if you give an approximate geographic location in the UK where the work will take place. If the work is near the Scottish border, operators from the south of Devon would probably not be interested!

    Also, a rough idea of renumeration package on offer, if indeed there is one.

    We have had many offers like this appear on the forum, only for it to actually transpire the outfit in question wanted PFAW holders to do the work for free with the 'promise' of more work!

    That's all understood. At the moment the details are not fully known. We have had an initial meeting last month and are back in early September with the board of directors to deliver a presentation. The work will be all over the UK but we will know more next month once the meeting has taken place. We are only a small company and the potential for us to be stretched is present, hence the reason we are looking for people to work with. It most certainly would not be for free, and whoever did work with us would be paid accordingly. This is just purely a test the water post to see if there is the interest out there before we potentially embarrass ourselves taking on more than we can deliver.

    OK, understood - thanks for clarifying.
    Keep us posted.

    Might be interested myself ;) - You are West Midlands, I am East Midlands so minutes from the A1 for easy access North and South. :)

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that's replied so far. There's a lot of interest and experience for us to team up with. As soon as we have more information we will let you know more ;).

    I've just sent out a load of questionnaires to people. Please don't think this is a way of us being nosey, but we want to make sure that the people we could potentially be giving some of our work to are professional. There are too many horror stories about at the moment concerning cowboy individuals and companies. We're keen that we don't become associated with these kind of operators. If anyone has asked for a questionnaire and hasn't received then please PM and I'll try again.

    Totally agree, we have all spent thousands, potential employers who expect work to be done FOC are being disrespectful to our hard earned licence. Pay the the going rate then a discount can be negotiated on future work volume.

    You might want to remove your telephone numbers.
