Experience and Qualifications

Finding a job as an Electrician’s Mate will be easier if you have some previous experience in the electrical trade.  Most electrical companies and self-employed electricians running their own businesses will be looking to recruit someone with at least basic electrical knowledge and has already developed their practical skills, but many trainees are willing to work as mates whilst studying at college.     Employers will be looking to recruit on a labour only basis but will offer either PAYE (on the cards) or Sub-Contract terms (Self-Employed) so be sure to check the job spec or ask before applying for the post.  Electrical qualifications may not be essential for some smaller electrical contractors but larger companies and employment or recruitment agencies will probably require candidates to hold relevant up to date certification.  A JIB card and a CSCS card could also be a requirement if applying for a post through an agency.

Types of Electrician’s Mate

Those working as an Electrician’s Mate tend to fall into two categories:

  • Electrical Improvers working as Mates whilst studying.
  • Those content to remain working as Electrician’s Mates without undertaking further qualifications.

Electrician Improvers would normally be over Electrical Apprentice age and studying to attain fully qualified electrician status.  Working as an Electrician’s Mate can be an excellent way of gaining experience of electrical work whilst building on your existing skills.  The Electrical Installation Qualification NVQ Level 3 and City and Guilds courses require ‘on the job’ assessments which can only be carried out whilst working in the electrical trade.  Electrical Improvers may also wish to obtain Self-Certifying status under Part P of the Building Regulations.

Some Electrician’s Mates are content to remain working under the supervision of a fully qualified electrician and don’t wish to attain  further electrical qualifications.  Electrician’s assistants and mates will always be an integral part of the electrical industry’s workforce due to their wealth of knowledge and experience.  They will often be able to carry out tasks normally undertaken by qualified electricians at lower rates of pay.   Health & Safety and location specific qualifications and certification may be required such as CompEX training for explosive atmospheres.

KETTERING. I live in kettering but willing to travel or even move after my course.

I’m currently attending Tresham College two evenings a week studying city and guilds 2365 level 3. Looking for work within the trade to gain experience and possibly move on towards achieving an NVQ. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone.

One thing I thrive is to launch myself into a career that is exciting as well as rewarding doing something that I’m passionate about, gives me drive and determination to aim to be better than the best. Electrical work is very suited to my personality with the personal skills I have already achieved alongside being very self motivated and organised. I’ve previously obtained experience in the industry, I’m looking to gain more knowledge, direction and improvement if somebody would take me under their wing as such.

I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. I’m flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others, I also have lots of ideas and enthusiasm. I’m keen to work for a company with a great reputation and high profile such as yours. I believe I could fit easily into your work force, I found it challenging yet satisfying working in a mostly male dominated environment where I took this in my stride, above all it has been extremely pleasing to be treated equally with respect from co-workers.

I have excellent references and would be delighted to discuss any possible vacancy with you at your convenience. In case you do not have any suitable openings at the moment, I would be grateful if you would keep myself in mind for any future possibilities. I am available for interviews at any time, currently I hold an ECS card enabling me to start work immediately.

May I take this opportunity in thanking you for your time.
