Default New Entrant

After working in Heavy Engineering for a dozen years, I'm looking at a career change. I'm studying to be a fully qualified electrician. Full Part P and 17th included.
What I'm looking at is possibly to get a job in a labouring role while studying. Could anyone tell me the best companies, places I should be looking at for work and possibly what pay I should be expecting/looking at?
Ideally I'll be looking at more industrial electrical work rather than domestic, as this is the field I'll wish to enter.
Any advice will be greatly received, Thanks.

Hi Rhinecourt,
Welcome to the forum.
If you get an opportunity to do non-industrial work I'd suggest you take
it. It's easier to be good at the specialties if you've got a wide base of
experience. IMO, everyone would benefit from a yr or so of residential
tract housing in their apprenticeship.
Good Luck,
P&L

There is an electricians website in the UK although I can't seem to find it. You might be able to google it.
