Hi guys

27 year old electrician's mate here but looking to change trades. The main reason being job satisfaction, I don't want to pay another £1-2k for qualifications to become a fully fledged sparky when it is not what i want to do. Tiling has always appealed to me due to the instant job satisfaction you would get after tiling a customers bathroom\ kitchen etc, however, I appreciate it's not easy either!

I have tried ringing some local tiling firms with no success so thought i'd try on here.

I am based in Bedfordshire but would be willing to travel. I also have my own van. No tiling experience but i'm a quick learner, hands on and keen to learn. I'm also aware and appreciate I would need to take a pay cut while i gain the experience.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Good luck .
You might want to get some practical experience handling tools you're not familiar with first . Like dustpan and brush and the magical sucky thing or as we call it a hoover , but in all seriousness good luck
