    Default Thailand scaffolding jobs.

    Hello all, moving to Thailand next year and wondering what scaff courses would be beneficial for me to do. Currently part 2 and going to do the old supervisour course and offshore BOISET/MIST. Would like to do the Advanced but to much hassle to complete the portfolio, probably never get it done.
    Any advice would be great,, specialy if there are anyother scaffs in Thailand that could give me some advice. I know there are a lot of petrol/chemical projects going on near Chonburi but willing to travel. We will be based in Chiang Mai.

    I know what you mean, most use bamboo scaffold and ive seen some right abominations from tube n fitting but there are also a lot of oil companies out there and companies such as hurtel and cape to name a few.
    There`s offshore work in chonburi but ive heard its nearly impossible to land one of them jobs.
    Any guys living outhere n working out side the country, short contract middle east offshore work etc?

    Hi Woodsie,

    It will be nearly impossible to get work inland scaffolding. Thai's really only use Thai labour, and a work permit will be hard to get. Teaching English you may stand a chance, but any form of manual construction, no chance. Most of there scaffolding is bamboo, and stripping out brings a whole new meaning to "bombing," in the road, cars driving over it, hitting parked cars, total crazy. Health and safety in the North and North East is unheard of. I showed some lads to catch and stack, to make life easier, they thanked me with a bottle of Thai wiskey (rocket fuel) all got pi***d as farts, and they just carried on striking lol.

    I know mate i lived there for 4 years teaching english but just wondering if there is any work offshore or if any lads live there and work abroad some months of the year.
    A company called foster wheeler was advertising for scaff supervisour in Chonburi recently.

    Default Work in Thailand (Pattaya)

    Up until Feb 2008, DSL had a business operating mainly onshore (Rig Yard) in Pattaya. They employed around 800 staff. When Siteserv bought DSL the operation in Thailand was not part of the deal and has continued independently ever since. I do not have any contact details or the current name of the company( if it was changed post 2008). They did employ Brits on the scaffold side of the business. Sorry if this info is rather vague, just hope this helps.
