Are you looking to start a new career in the construction industry? Are you driven and motivated?

Your work will involve a ‘fixing' stage, followed by a ’finishing' stage.

At the 'fixing’ stage, you’ll:

  • measure and cut plasterboard to the right sizes and angles
  • fix panels to timber, metal frames or ceiling joists using special studs
  • cut panels to fit around doorways and create openings for windows

You’ll then ‘finish’ the walls by:

  • sealing joints using filler or adhesive
  • taping over the seal either by hand or with a taping machine
  • applying a thin layer of plaster over the tape (skimming)
  • sanding down the area ready for painting and decorating

Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

Good numeracy skills and attention to detail are essential as you’ll be calculating surface areas and volumes.

Personal qualities

  • Team player
  • willing to learn

Qualifications required

No formal requirements, but it’s useful to have GCSEs (grade A*-C) in English and Maths.

Future prospects
