Why Become a Plumber?

With a huge range of different trades and skills one could learn, you might ask yourself, why become a plumber?  Here are our 7 reasons to consider a career in the plumbing industry.

  1. Earnings – due to the unique skill, and high volume of work, plumbers are one of the highest paid tradesmen in the sector. Working self-employed can be one of the best ways to earn the most, with many plumbers charging £100 per hour.
  2. Getting qualified – unlike other industries that require degrees, or extensive training over several years, plumbers can receive nationally recognised qualifications quickly and easily.
  3. Variety of work – as a domestic plumber, it is unlikely you will be working at the same location more than once, so you get the opportunity to travel and meet new people.
  4. Commercial Opportunities – as well as standard domestic work, there are always opportunities to work on large commercial projects for even more variety.
  5. Economy – unlike other industries that may be impacted during economic downturns, plumbing is a job that will always be in demand.
  6. Rewarding – as with any trade or skill, completing a good job whilst helping others creates huge job satisfaction.
  7. Technology – evolving technology in the industry makes the job constantly evolve, and you will always be learning. The chartered institute of plumbing and heating engineering provide great CPD courses so that you can continue to learn and develop when you are qualified.
