I have been involved with the trade since 16 years old (now 34) but mainly done plasterboarding and patching, until I moved to Australia for 10 years. While there I worked as a plasterer, but they only set the joints with machines or by hand.
I moved back to UK last December and have been doing odd jobs here and there, but found clients want plaster over whole wall/ceiling. So I did an intensive plastering course and the college were very happy with my workmanship. I know that I can skim but also know that there is always room for improvement.

I am looking for work all the time but would like to work for somebody to further my skills, so if there is anyone looking for a hard working very keen helper in the Birmingham area, then I am your man.
Please reply to me here and then we go from there.
Regards Ian.
