          Helping you find a career in the electrician industry

          Electricians install and maintain electrical machinery in houses, businesses and beyond. The job involves some level of risk in working with high voltages regularly but the salary of a skilled electrician can often exceed that of other tradesmen. Many electricians enter the trade through an apprenticeship.

          If you have a methodical way of working, an eye for detail and an interest in the technical side of electrical equipment then you would suit a role as an electrician.
