Carpenter Or Joiner
Carpenters and joiners make and install wooden fixtures and fittings. They can work in many areas, for instance on construction sites, fitting out shops and bars, and building sets for film and TV.
If you enjoy working with wood and want to put your practical skills to good use, this could be an ideal career for you.
You'll need an eye for detail, good maths skills for working out measurements and the ability to follow technical plans.
Employers usually want people with some construction experience and relevant qualifications. You could start as a joiner's mate or labourer to get some site experience then take further training to qualify. Another common way into this career is through an Apprenticeship scheme.
