I am allocated varied work on a daily basis, ranging from large panels to bespoke profiles that require welding into lots of different shapes and sizes.
Even though the job of welding is the same, the jobs do change each day, which keeps it interesting and there’s still time for banter with my colleagues.
I love the environment I work in, it really does help when doing a job like mine – everything is in the right place and if support is needed you’ve got people you can trust to help out.
It can be difficult finding ways to keep irregular shape panels together while welding, as when applying heat they can go out of line, which can be frustrating. It takes a bit of problem solving – as well as clamps, glue and tape. Sometimes greater imagination is needed when working on more complex bespoke profiles and this is when I turn to my colleagues for some constructive ideas – although I do occasionally get more humorous suggestions!
You’ve got to have a desire to get the job done properly. What I will say is, you either love it or hate it! Best advice I can offer is to give it a try, it’s the only way you will really know.
Never had one but would be pleased to hear if I do!
