Very easy task tbf , clean the surface, apply the correct primer , apply plaster to surface and trowel to a lovely flat matt finish ,
Other things to consider the state of the surface to be plastered , is it blown or suitable for a skimcoat , this is the part of “how to plaster” that is worth paying for a plasterer tbh , it could just be a simple skimcoat as described or there may be a need to remove the existing plaster and start again with a fresh new backing coat for the skimcoat to be applied , in all fairness for the cost of a plasterer for a few days work it might be more cost effective to employ one to make these basic but important decisions.

You forgot to say "OK guys" after every sentence like that remf 607 nob.
