A career as a plumber
– is it right for me?

There are many reasons why you might choose to become a plumber. Firstly, there remains a shortage of trained plumbers in the UK. So it stands to reason that a variety of different work options will be available to you as soon as you’re qualified.

Most plumbers opt to work in residential development plus maintenance and repair sectors, but some build their business in new construction and industrial settings instead. There are many reasons why a plumbing career could be right for you.

A plumber's duties include:

  • Designing, fitting and maintaining water systems in buildings
  • Installing toilets, baths, showers, sinks, washing machines & dishwashers
  • Installing central heating systems (wet elements only) and new pipework
  • Servicing older systems, identifying and fixing faults
  • Attending emergency call-outs when water or heating systems are damaged
Infrastructure is always going to need maintaining and installing. That’s why I chose a career in trades. I want my future to be safe. Leah - Student
