The range of environments you can work in as an electrician is vast – you could become an expert in wiring up department stores, office blocks, hospitals, factories, or even yachts. Every environment is slightly different, with different operational needs that need to be met. Your working day can also be very varied, as you move between fixing everything from air conditioning to security systems, lighting to heating.
Homes, transport systems, leisure facilities, manufacturing, and offices all rely on electricity to keep them operating. The electrical systems that supply them are complex and continuously changing, as innovations help to make them more energy efficient.
