Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I join the Forest Group? -
We are family business with a history of staff retention with a strong focus on health and welfare. We employ the best people and invest in their development to ensure we remain ahead of the competition.
What are the basic working hours for a Forest Group Engineer? -
Our Engineers are contracted to a minimum of 40 hours each week. Additional overtime is required to meet our Customers needs. This is typically seasonal and therefore fluctuates throughout the year.
If I work a Bank Holiday day, how am I paid? -
For working a Bank holiday day, you are effectively paid treble time for hours worked plus time off in lieu. On average, this works out at over £40 per hour plus a holiday day. If you are on call on a Bank holiaday day, you also earn a standbye fee too!
What are the on-call hours and do you operate 24/7? -
Our on call hours begin at 5pm on a friday and continue a week. To ensure we meet our Customers needs, we operate a 24/7 response, 365 days of the year and whilst emergency calls can be placed 24/7, calls logged after midnight are extremely rare.
