Plumber cum Electrician

During tough times it can be difficult to know what career to turn to, especially when it seems like certain sectors are quickly filling up. 

But what if we told you there’s a sector with an estimated employee shortage of 30,000, and not only that, but it’s also recession-proof and always in demand? Well we aren’t lying, we’re talking about plumbing.

 So, what will I actually be doing?

Working as a plumber you’ll be faced with a variety of tasks and – as you’ll often be called out in an emergency – bags of job satisfaction when you’ve set things right as the prospect of suddenly having water again will make people very happy.

Working as a plumber involves much more than simply fixing leaky pipes as every day will involve a new job, a new client and a new environment. Tasks you’ll be expected to carry out include:

  • ·         Installing or maintaining heating systems
  • ·         Repairing sanitation systems
  • ·         Fitting domestic appliances (such as dishwashers)
  • ·         Installing air-conditioning units
  • ·         Fitting bathrooms
  • ·      Emergency repairs
