    I keep seeing advertisements for "multiskilled" engineers.

    They want a fully qualified electrician with testing & inspect that can also do plumbing, and fabric work inc brickwork.

    I think these employers are dreaming.

    Tram driver not bus driver. A tram driver doesn't even have to steer.
    Any electrician taking that job doesn't know their worth.

    New advert appearing on top of forum is for "24hr plumber electrician"
    Wassat then? Only works on water pumps??

    Plenty of Jobs around here at 29.5k plus mate I have seen the odd silly offer like you have shown lol, but the word handyman would scare most sparks away.

    Boy I was so dumb when I was young and got my first wage packet. I noticed they had took out some money and the amount was not the wage they said I would get. I was so upset and asked what was going on, they had to gently explain to me that it was tax and N.I. that they had to take out......£7 10s per week minus legalised theft amounts.
