Plumbers work on the maintenance, repair and installation of heating, water and sanitation systems into NHSScotland buildings. They may work on their own, with other plumbers or with a team from the other technical or building trades, depending on the job.
They may move around on a hospital site as needed and work normal hours as required, but might sometimes be on call in case of emergency.
As a plumber, your tasks would normally include:
- installing new heating systems
- planned maintenance work and testing of existing systems to ensure they are in good working order
- finding and repairing faults, such as water leaks, blocked drains and boiler breakdowns
