hi all

I'm 27 and currently employed and live in Leeds And can drive.

I qualified in carpentry and joinery about 10 years ago but unfortunately due to the lack of perminant work and my financial situation I didn't stay in the trade for long.

Iv always fancied larning to plaster and I'm now at a point where it's do or die

so I'm looking for some one who wants an older apprentice
I'm not shy of hard work and will get stuck in to anything asked of me

I'm not a total stranger to the building trade and I'm pritty competent with hand tools and any joinery (stud walls boarding etc...)
Thanks
Oli

Honestly mate, do you really want to start on a trade that will wreck your body, by the time you get good enough to earn decent money you will be to old to do it. As said above get out and do something else, all the best for whatever you decide to do mate

How many time served spreads still love going to work, not many I bet
Better of being a chippie easier money
You put someone in any job for 20 years and 9 out of 10 will hate it...and 9 out of 10 will have the worst job in the world..we are english and were born to moan....plasteters arent unique in that.
