Job opportunity

Besides being involved with treemagineers, I am also co-owner of baumpartner, a tree care co-op based in Basel, Switzerland.

From 1 October onwards we have an opening for a climbing arborist. Not too fussed about qualifications, we are more interested in finding someone who fits well into the team.

baumpartner has been up and running since 2000, almost all of the work we do is within a 20km radius, the work is a mix of residential and communal contracts. One of the attractions of working this way is that often you will be returning to trees you have worked on before and can assess the effectiveness of earlier measures performed on the tree. The work ranges from tree protection on building sites, all aspects of pruning and bracing, technical rigging, crane removals, tree planting and consultation.

Basel is in north-western Switzerland, right on the border with France and Germany. The city offers lots in the way of culture and entertainment, is easy to get around on a bicycle. The central location in Europe means you can hop in a car and get to loads of interesting places in a couple of hours.

There is a lot of cross-over from the other projects I am involved with, the company re-invests in new equipment and we have an interest in offering employees a dynamic, supportive and interesting work environment. baumpartner from the get-go has fostered a culture of level hierarchies, as well as a spirit of solidarity and looking out for each other, which is core to our vision of how people ought to work together.

As I mentioned above, we are not necessarily looking for the best of the best, rather someone who is dedicated and committed to delivering high-quality tree work, enjoys working in a team and is keen to broaden their horizon.
