About the Role
Apprentice plumbers perform many of the same tasks that veteran plumbers do, including installing new plumbing fixtures, unclogging plumbing systems, and repairing pipes. They may handle easier jobs on their own and act as a helper on more complex jobs. Apprentice plumbers typically work regular business hours that veteran plumbers do.
Apprentice plumbers identify the location of leaks, so they make repairs. Once a problem is diagnosed, the apprentice plumber will help make the necessary repairs. Depending on the issue, this can involve cutting into walls or tearing up concrete to access pipes and repairing or replacing sections of pipe to stop leaks, using a rooter to clear clogs, or performing minor repairs to dripping fixtures.
Physical strength – Tools and equipment can be heavy, so apprentice plumbers need to have the physical strength and stamina to lift heavy items when necessary.
Communication skills – Apprentice plumbers need to be able to work well with their managers and listen to instructions, as well as talking and explaining issues to customers, so strong communication skills are a must for this job
