Hi all, sorry to bump my old post. I just thought I’d update you as you all made an effort in posting your replies.
I worked at Lidl for approx 6 months, I was promoted to duty manager and they wanted me to be assistant manager but I just didn’t want it, whilst there I was applying for...
Sorry slow reply, I moved house and had no WiFi.
I took a job at Lidl for now, to keep food in the cupboards and to save for qualification.
I called many plasterers and either they had a labourer or took my number for future, so no labouring offered.
I’m still trying to keep at it, been tasked...

Thank you, by all means I know I am not a plasterer yet but I want to be.

I'm happy to work hard and I have pride in my work. I am confident that any plasterer that takes me on will not be disappointed.
I am an honest, hard working man and considered a perfectionist that pays attention to detail. I learn quickly and can definitely appreciate the banter.
