If you are considering your career options and are thinking that a career in the electrical or communications cabling sector might be right for you, you couldn’t have chosen a more exciting and diverse industry to think about.

Electrotechnology is a diverse and interesting field in which to develop a career. It offers great variety and a wide choice of sectors to work in, and different jobs within those sectors.

Most people who consider a career in electrotechnology usually think of becoming a domestic (home) electrician. They see themselves working in houses, running cable, connecting power points, light fittings and other small electrical appliances. But this is only part of the work of a domestic electrician and an even smaller part of the electrical industry.
