CSCS cards and IFA membership in job adverisements for diggers...what a laugh
It never ceases to amaze me how bloody cheeky commercial units are when they advertise for staff. Not only do they continue using the 'self employed' card, a certain northern unit take note, they continue to take the piss when employing excavation staff. So a graduate or entry level digger wanting employment with commercial units are expected to have a CSCS card AND IFA membership...on the crap wages they are offering thats extracting the urine. In 25 years as a field archaeologist I thought Id seen it all. The IFA for all their posturing has in my experience done nothing for anybody other than IFA members so diggers would be better of joining a union....thats if the unit recognises unions. By all means go get a CSCS card if your desperate but CSCS cards should be supplied and paid for by the employer, same as PPE and safety equipment.
