Hi everyone im obviously new in here but im gash fi fife in scotland. I completed a four year apprenticeship in electrical maintinance at a big name petrochemical plant and worked for a further year after my apprenticeship in the maintenance squad, for the last year though ive been moved into process shift work where im getting absoloutly no electrical work, im gratefull for the fact i have a full time job with a good pension but im getting no job satisfaction! Sounds a bit silly i know but im not wanting to lose my trade i worked so hard for for 4 years. Does anyone think going self employed into the building trade would be to much of a gamble / minefield ?

hi gash me a bit new here too but they all seem friendly.
you could probably do with a bit of experience in that field before going solo but it doesnt mean you wont suceed. it also depends on your circumstances , if you like me and have commitments you need regular wage which you cant guarentee if self employed.
all the best whatever you decide.
