Electrical Job Roles and Apprenticeship Opportunities

There’s plenty of young people looking for jobs in the electrical sector these days, and we get quite a few phoning us, or turning up on site or at our Head Office in Luton. If they don’t have qualifications, or experience, but are looking for a way to learn on the job, we always give them the same advice: “Get online, Google ‘Electrician Apprenticeships’ and take a look at what’s on offer.”

Electrical Apprenticeship Opportunities Provide Practical and Business Skills

An apprenticeship scheme is a great way to learn a trade and get qualifications at the same time; a good proportion of the people running their own electrical businesses probably went through and apprenticeship scheme, because they not only teach you to do, they also teach you how to think about what you’re doing. For anyone that doesn’t feel that university’s the right route for them, who wants to learn a skill that they’ll be able to use throughout their lives, who wants a job with a whole range of job options and opportunities available, an apprenticeship is a great place to start.

All our electrical installers hold a range of safety accreditations including ConstructionLine, Safecontractor and CHAS and they place the needs and requirements of clients at the heart of everything they do.

How Do Apprenticeships Work?

An electrical apprentice works full-time with a local company, earning a wage from day one. Their time is split between learning the practical skills, on-site with their employer, and attending a local training centre or college to gain the qualifications that will support your developing career. The government requires all apprentices gain a theoretical understanding of their practical skills, an appropriate NVQ, any industry specific requirements, transferable skills, and a knowledge of employees’ rights and responsibilities.

The Electrician’s Job Role

Ask any of the electrical engineers at FSE Electrical Contractors why they’re doing the job and somewhere in the answer will be the fact that each day brings new challenges to solve, new people to deal with, and new ways to use your skills. Once you’ve learnt the basic electrical skills of wiring, installing and testing, then you start to work with the thousands of different ways in which wiring, installing and testing can by applied. Electricians need to be motivated, committed and skilled because electricity can be deadly if it’s misused; they also need a great sense of humour, a clear understanding of customer service, and an enjoyment of working in dedicated teams.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, talk to us about your apprenticeship scheme.
