Working in fabrication and welding is one of the most highly-skilled construction techniques used in engineering. You could find yourself working on a variety of jobs, from small specialist tasks to large-scale projects.
As a fabricator and welder, you’ll need to have an eye for detail and a high-level of accuracy to ensure jobs are completed to spec. You’ll also need to be able to work as part of a team or on individual projects.
The job will require a certain level of physical work – so you’ll be expected to work hard to get the job done.
