Have you ever sat down and really thought about your career?

Working 9-5 everyday doing the same thing can become extremely tedious, working for someone else and being told what to do. It could be completely different, and you could be enjoying your with and being your own boss, after all you spend 75% of your time working, so you might as well enjoy it.

Because we have seen so many go onto new and successful careers after training at Able Skills, we are going to let you know of 5 reasons why you should learn a trade.

Be your Own Boss

Working day in day out doing the same hours can be hard work and0 taking orders from someone else doesn’t make it much easier. Learning a trade can mean you no longer have to work for someone else and you can be your own boss. Do the work you want to do and how you want to do it. A trade will give you more flexibility around your work and everything you do id for yourself.

Earn your Own Money

Being your own boss also allows you to earn you own money. When working as a tradesman/woman you can carry out a range of jobs and all the money you earn is your own. The limit of what you earn is down to you, say goodbye to a monthly wage and earn all your own money for yourself.

Work when you want

Being a tradesman/woman gives you the opportunity to choose when you want to work. Holiday entitlement can be yours whenever you choose. You can structure your working times to suit you and your diary. Wake up when you want and finish when you want, being your own boss has endless opportunities.

New Career and Fresh Start

Many people training to become a tradesman/woman are starting new careers and it means a fresh start. Having a fresh start in a new career can be hugely beneficial, because doing the same job over and over again for many years can become tedious, so giving your career a refresh can give you a new lease of life. Whether it be a technical or construction trade you can get started.
