Pest Technician Vacancy
Due to expansion PEST UK have a Pest Technician Vacancy based in the Harrow area.
At PEST UK our pest control technicians are unique. We (PESTUK) supply the work (either ‘one off’ jobs &/or pest control contracts) and the technicians take 50% of the fee! If the technicians bring in their ‘own’ work then this rises to 75%. Our technicians are extremely well paid and self motivated. We have a system where the pest control technicians run theire own limited company, so you pay less tax by claiming for protective clothing, telephone bills, gas, electric bills etc. You get better paid & generally have more spare time when it is needed. We can offer the position as a ‘normal’ employee but rates would be lower to reflect this. Setting up limited company is a relatively simple process which we can help with. This set up process is very similar to a franchise but without the up front costs.
Pest Technician Vacancy
PESTUK believe that the people who work for the company should benefit from any success. This is why we pay the pest control technicians the way we do.
Security – PEST UK was established in 1989. Currently we now have 12 technicians. During that time no one has been made redundant due to lack of work, recession, company re organisation or take over. Whenever a downturn has taken place the income may drop but never are jobs lost. Some of our technicians have been with us for over 20 years. PEST UK is a member of BPCA and is Trading Standards approved.
What the Pest Control Technician provides: The pest control technician supplies their own van (sign written, which the company will pay for) & ladder with PEST UK supplying all of the other equipment.
What PEST UK provides: PESTUK supply the work.jobs which the operator carries out and then receives a percentage of the moneys earned from that job. The rate is standard for each job completed. Although being self employed (Ltd) you loose some benefits, It is similar to a franchise without the costs but with job security.
Earnings can be extremely high in the Summer (up to £7000.00 + per month) but lower (depending on workload) in the Winter months. Yearly earnings can work out quite high, approx. 35-50k +. The existing technicians are probably the highest paid in the country. Earnings do vary from year to year.
PESTUK covers Central Southern England with some contracts in the West Country. Where possible the jobs are grouped together & operators kept in a particular area. Treatments involve rodent, insect & some mammal pests and some proofing, the bulk of the work is domestic treatments & contract work. The actual way the treatments are carried out will not be described in detail here but they follow the BPCA, and COSHH guide lines & must be obeyed at all times. The wearing of protective clothing and all other safety measures etc. are to be strictly adhered to. Technicians are allocated contracts which are serviced at set intervals. These contracts supply regular work & income throughout the year.
The hours ‘on call’ (unless agreed before hand) are:
Winter – 08:00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday
Summer – 08:00 to 19:00 Monday to Friday
Weekends & Bank Holidays are shared out between technicians
Flexibility is a key factor, there is plenty of scope for time off except in these busier months but as we are a small team it can be difficult to have time off should another technician be off. This job is much better paid than most PCOs and for most of the year working fewer hours with a great deal of independence within the PEST UK guide lines, but in return we expect loyalty and honesty.
You may talk to our existing technicians about the Pest Technician Vacancy to get their opinions, contact details can be obtained at the interview.
