What advice would you give to young people who want a job like yours?
I began my working life as a YTS apprentice plumber, so I know it’s possible to work your way up the ladder if you persevere, have the willingness to learn and put in hard work. One of the best pieces of advice I have been given, and tried to follow, is to do everything to the best of your ability, even the smallest of tasks, and never give up, ever. This philosophy has helped me in my work and other parts of my life too!
