Gas Engineer Demand?
« on: February 23, 2010, 03:17:57 PM »

I am new here and was wondering if I could kindly borrow your experience please?

I am not trying to advertise in any way here, but just to work out if something is a possibility, so I will have to limit the details so I don't get accused of anything!

I recently had a discussion with a friend about supply and demand of gas engineers at the moment.  The conversation was based around a potential interest in some gas appliance installation/commissioning engineers that would be supplied with their own van and work a 4-day week (no weekend work), but would be required to travel nationally from a Midlands base, with a salary in the region of 36k+.

My question is this: with the pros and cons of being self-employed vs employed, do you think there would be a supply of engineers that would find this package attractive or do people much prefer to work only on a regional basis?

Please note that this is in no-way a vacancy advert and I am not looking to find any candidates, I am simply interested in people's preferences in the industry.

Very grateful for any opinions you have and I'm sorry if this post is in the wrong place
