A career in Plumbing and Gas can range from the installation of domestic appliances to a role in global energy supply.
Plumbers work on sanitation, heating, hot and cold water systems, and the sheet lead weathering required for the inside and outside of buildings.
It is possible to specialise in particular areas of plumbing work. Plumbers need a great deal of technical knowledge and expertise. Plumbers work for plumbing or mechanical engineering services contractors, building contractors, public sector bodies, or specialist contractors in the marine, chemical and gas industries.
Once qualified, plumbers can work towards technician or supervisory level jobs, specialise in a specific area of work and/or go self-employed.
