I am living in London at the moment and I am currently looking for a job.
I have brickwork experience, both internal and external. I can also laminate floors and paint (and have qualifications too). How do I get a job or customers?
If you already have skills and you can use a computer then you could start by doing work for different customers – either family, friends or neighbours. Print some business cards and deliver them to local houses and businesses (that’s how I found my decorator!)
Then when you do a job, take photos of each stage of the job and upload them on a blog (try wordpress.com as it is free or ask a friend to do it for you). As you build a portfolio you can start applying for jobs with building companies or even the local Council (because you can show examples of your work on your blog). You may find that actually you like working for yourself. Hopefully other deaf builders will give you their advice on here too. Good luck!
