It has been reported recently that a survey by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) has found that one in three vacancies for trades such as electricians, plumbers and chefs were hard to fill due to a shortage of skills amongst applicants. Job specific abilities as well as more personal attributes such as organisation and team working were all described as areas where candidates did not meet expectations.

The team at We Fix Now place a strong emphasis on customer service and firmly believe that selecting the right people to join their firm is an essential part of this service. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.

“We understand that inadequately skilled workmen can contribute to the industry getting a bad name but we always strive to select the best people for the job. We aim to ensure that client calls are dealt with quickly and effectively. No matter what time of day or night, fully qualified and experienced plumbers in London are always available.”

The team at We Fix Now are also keen to highlight that despite the apparent lack of skills in prospective plumbing and electrician candidates, the situation does look to be improving, with the government set to invest heavily in training during the next five to ten years.
