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 Historic buildings, 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.
