fall-apart-dave 19-02-2011 04:30 PM

split personality 19-02-2011 04:41 PM

any ideas what the money is like ?

fall-apart-dave 20-02-2011 10:14 AM

Yes, since I work for them :lol:


vwbeetle 20-02-2011 10:43 AM

is there any positions available within the company you work for, for a welder?

fall-apart-dave 20-02-2011 11:53 AM

That all depends vwbeetle, they are alwyas after folk who have a broad skill set. They rarely recruit specifically for a tradesman like that, but if you are a coded welder then they would definately have a use for you, depending on what sort of work you would take and your location. If you plumb for an offshore position, then your role will be multi-purpose anyway and welding will be something you won't do too often. However, the very fact that you can weld means that you already have a good skill set which can be built upon, which is something which would put you in good stead for a job should you apply.

vwbeetle 20-02-2011 12:37 PM

well, as for the skills i have on paperwork i have an nvq 2 in fabrication and welding and a 3268 certificate, and i finish my level 3 in june. not too sure if it would apply but i also have a level 2 in motor vehicle repair and maintenance, which i suppose can apply to working on any machinery.
basically i can put my mind to anything as im a hands on mechanical type of person.
