The Backyard Barber RWB ltd
At the Backyard Barber RWB we offer wide variety of garden maintenance jobs, like lawn mowing, weeding, fence painting and hedges. The business was set up to occupy my time during lockdown while I couldn’t get a ‘traditional Job’ I had had basic experience working in my own garden so knew my way around a mower… We purely hire school students between the ages of 16-18 giving them the opportunity to experience the world of work and start to make their own money, This currently gives us our current USP which our customers love. We provide all of our own tools for the jobs with the help of the van which I recently invested in after passing my driving test the week before this allows me to get all tools and workers around without the limitations of parents that I had before which relied on me putting my lawnmower on the back of my Bike trailer and cycling it around. The business is run alongside me studying for my A levels (Business studies, economics and Engineering). The majority of my customers have come from my comparibly big local social media following which I have build a 5 star reputation with over the last 13months which keep customers coming in thick and fast but I am now at the point where I would need to employ full time staff to carry out the work to keep up with demand and expand to a premise to store and maintain equipment rather than using my parents garage. The the opportunity of having mentoring would be priceless to the growth of my business because we are now at the stage I don’t know how to approach the next step.
We aim to help people have a garden to be proud of while employing local students and giving them workplace life skills.
