    Default Hi all from Manchester


    Hi I'm new here so unfortunatly I can't post in classified area,so will post hereI'm looking for work in Greater Manchester as Taper&Jointer.I have 6 years experience (hand taping)NVQ2,CSCS,IPAF,tools and transport.If anyone will have some work please let me know.
    Also I would like to know from other tapers if is it possible to live and work as taper just in one place?So fare I always have to travel ,change cites etc.I'm singel so its not a problem at the moment but one day will want to stay in one place.
    Great site

    Thanks for taking the time for an intro Tom. We do get the odd job vacancy posted here and funnily enough the last one for a contract in Aberdeen never even got one single reply. Welcome to the forums.

    I dont see why you cant live and work in the same city, especially in a city the size of Manchester. I do 95% of all my work within 50 miles of Edinburgh.

    Builders have always been good travellers. Don't you think living/working in the same place would be boring? Welcome aboard.

    Thanx for reply.I forget to say that I'm polish,I hope thats not a problem.I must say that I never had problem on site because of that,you british are very open ,so my say to much openAnyway if you search for work in jobcentres like I do,there isn't many jobs in Manchester.In Scotland for some reason there need more amestaper.But maybe I just don't know right people.
    I want to check also if is it normal for hand taper to use trowel?I been taught this way,but most other tapers I know use only knifes.

    We really don't give a shit where anyone comes from and we mean that respectfully so theres no problem you're Polish. Uczciwie. For hand taping, use whatever you're comfortable with. I use the automatic taping tools with knives to finish off...

    just seems a strange question to be asking from someone who has been taping for 6 years
