What you will do in your working day

The electrical contracting industry is part of the construction industry and therefore electricians are generally responsible for the installation, maintenance and repair of electrical services, both inside and outside buildings and structures such as houses, hospitals, schools, factories and shops etc.

However, all electricians will have a broad range of similar technical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to carry out their work safely and correctly.

Some of the things that an electrician will be expected to do are:

  • Install, maintain and repair electrical services (e.g. lighting, sockets, fire alarms, emergency lighting & heating controls)
  • Work indoors and outdoors and be prepared to sometimes work at height
  • Work with little or no supervision; relying on their own initiative
  • Be prepared to travel away from home
  • Develop good working relationships with people
  • Read both building and engineering drawings
  • Understand wiring and circuit diagrams
  • Select (within limits) materials and equipment
  • Inspect and test electrical installations
  • Diagnose and rectify faults on a range of circuits and equipment
  • Write reports

As you can see, the job of the electrician is varied and interesting and can offer a challenging career.
