All you need to bring is some focuses and a pair of steel-capped boots. In addition, we have also thought about what you will come across as a working professional so we have a range of old and new appliances to accommodate for the range of, for example, boilers that you will come across on-site this is to ensure you don't come across a job that you are unfamiliar with.
