    RCD is not needed for a cooker. only necessary to comply with 522.6.7. and 522.6.8 to protect the cable < 50mm buried etc. unless of course the cooker outlet incorprates a socket outlet.

    well, as i'm on here at the moment, that tells you that work is slack. and here in cheshire, slack means non-existant.

    Depends what type of work you are looking for.
    If you move to London you will find site work if you have a JIB card. You can apply for this is you have the relevant qualifications.
