Trades can be a great option for young adults, research by the Federation of Master Builders found that the average salary for electricians across the UK is £47,265; far exceeding the university graduate’s average income of £32,000! There is a misconception in learning a trade that there is nowhere to go, no progression but in fact, working as an electrician could lead you down the path of being able to work for yourself, meaning you are your own boss, no specific hours no more routine. Eventually, if you want to you could even start your own business and employ others. An Electricians work is never the same day-to-day there is always a new task at hand and a new problem to solve.

An electrician’s salary depends on the type of employment and experience. However, it is generally more than any other employees in the construction trade and is steadier as well. Either way, from the beginning the electrician salary is quite attractive and is most likely to rise over time with experience. Even if you do not work for an employer you would be earning more as a self-employed worker than other construction workers such as plumbers or carpenters.
