Electrician – Job Description

Electricians aren’t all plug-changers and re-wirers. In fact, the electrician trade can be broken down into three distinct categories, with installation electricians testing and installing lighting, fire or security systems; maintenance electricians testing and maintaining commercial or industrial equipment; and production electricians who build appliances from often-complex wiring blueprints.

So while one electrician will be re-wiring a house, another will be on a building site laying cables and a third will be installing a CCTV system. All, however, will be practical, good at understanding detailed instructions, analytical and mathematically minded and unafraid of either heights or confined spaces.
