Past or Current Contractors

One of the best things about working for GPFS is the variety of work and training we receive. There are always new things happening which keeps us entertained and on our toes, there are always new things to learn and do to further develop our skill sets!

The family oriented business makes it easy and enjoyable to work for!

The nature of the work isn’t always easy, there are both easy and hard jobs to do. Some of the biggest challenges were pushing through a tough job or coming up with a way to do things to solve a problem.

I have learnt a lot of new skills while working with GPFS, they have trained me up in any area I wanted to develop in and pushed me to develop myself.

Being able to work outdoors in a good team learning the skills needed to progress yourself to the next level. Kevin is a good teacher and doesn’t leave out any information that you’ll need to learn. Being able to make a difference too was one of the best things about working with GPFS; this was mainly planting native plants and being able to create a good habitat for animals if in the future animals were to live there.

Walking up and down hills constantly but it is something you will adapt to. Also being able to keep track with the invoicing as there is a wide range of jobs that you do which is good because it keeps you on your feet and interested in the work. Time management is a skill that you’ll learn because you’ll need to keep an invoice going.

That planting isn’t just planting. There is a heap to do with planting from spraying to how to plant a plant correctly, isn’t just a hole in the ground. Also what goes into keeping a forest alive and well to be able to get a good harvest. Also I loved learning about fencing and how to do it. When it comes to pest control I didn’t know how many plants were not good plants. Once learning some of these you’re forever looking to see if you can see any around.

My favourite job was the fire service. Learned a heap about how a fire works from before it ignites to the type of flame and how it spreads. You learn how to put it out also then how to aid for keeping the fire extinguished.
