Before Applying please read ALL the job description. Thank you
PESTUK require a pest control technician to cover the East Berkshire, Harrow, Hounslow & surrounding areas. Earnings are (35-50K). If you a qualified pest control technician and would like to change the way you work and are paid then please read below. If you feel you can meet these requirements then e mail your cv & we can arrange an interview.
At PESTUK 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 there own Ltd 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 the Ltd company is a relatively simple process which we can help with. This set up It is very similar to a franchise but better paid, without the up front costs and with job security as well as a regular income.
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.
PESTUK was established in 1989. Currently we now have 13 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.
PESTUK Coverage Area
The PESTUK main office is in Reading but our coverage area stretches from and including West London, Surrey, Berkshire, South Bucks, Hampshire & South Oxfordshire. Our existing technicians live throughout the area and tend to cover the areas that are nearest to them. We always try & reduce travelling to a minimum. This post will be mainly around the Hounslow & surrounding areas.
What the Pest Control Technician provides
The pest control technician supplies their own van & phone (sign written, which the company will pay for) & ladder with PESTUK supplying all of the other equipment.
What PESTUK Provide
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.
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.
PESTUK operate 8.00 am to 1800 hrs Winter & 8.00 am to 19.00 hrs Summer, Monday to Friday. (you are not expected to work all these hours!)
We operate Weekends & Bank Holidays, these days are shared out between the 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 PCO’s and for most of the year working less 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 to get their opinions, contact details can be obtained at the interview.
If you have any questions or would like an information form then please telephone: 0118 9505775
In some circumstances we would take on a trainee with a view to training them and putting them through the BPCA exam. However they would still need to provide their own van and accept a lower income while the training period was in place.
