At Able Skills we are working hard as usual to help aspiring electricians gain the skills, confidence and reputable qualifications they need to become professionals. Over the 20-years that we have been providing electrical training courses there have been many changes in the industry. However, there has never been a time where electricians are more in demand than right now!


Apparently, a quarter of all job vacancies last year across the UK were due to the increasing skills crisis. The problem is that electricians are constantly in demand, yet there are not enough people taking up the trade. London and the surrounding areas are seeing the biggest shortage of skilled electricians.

This is presenting the perfect opportunity for many other skilled tradespeople to add electrics to their business and help fill the growing skills gap. Those that do have the skills are seeing plenty of opportunities and increased pay for their services!

When demand outweighs supply the result is increased earnings for the tradespeople with the right skills. In 2020 the average electrician earned around £33,500 this number is only going to increase due to a lack of skilled workers.

The pandemic has not been successful at stopping the working electrician from earnings and finding work. In fact electricians have seen more work than ever as people spend more time at home. Now with the easing of lockdown restrictions there will only be more opportunity as commercial businesses look to get back up and running they will require the services of skilled electricians!
