How to get work on a site?

#1
Hi all.

Probably the wrong place to post this but I am wondering how I find work plastering on a site? I've been domestic plastering for the last twelve months and I'd like to try some mindless skimming on board for a bit for the experience but not being from a trades background I've never even been on a proper building site, only small sites where I've done jobs for builders etc.

Any tips? I realise I need the CSCS thing but what's after that? Do I ring Barrett homes and ask them if they've got a bit of work to do?!?!

I'm in Sussex by the way and happy to travel. Currently do a circa 80 mile round trip for work each day.

barratts etc are built by contractor.

I doubt you'd you get a start with that background. Thing is theres no time to get up to speed I've seen gangs come on site in the morning and punted off site by lunch time. If its what you want to do it may be an idea to see if you could find a gang thats looking for a labourer.

The big house builders have shareholders to pay dividends to. Your just one part of the cog that makes it happen.

And to poster, if i was lookin on site, id ring big firms ask if any price work goin off them.ideally youd get in direct so no middle man taking their cut, but it cuts a lot the hassle out too. Just turn up, work go home get paid.
