About Chris Daniels

I have been a professional bricklayer for 37 years. I completed my apprenticeship in 1983 with a national house builder. I then continued working for the same house builder for three more years. In 1986 I became self- employed completing building projects for domestic customers. During this time I acquired many other skills, including damp proofing, roofing, plastering, plumbing, joinery and tiling.

In 2001, I was ready for a new challange. I began training to become a Bricklaying Lecturer. I achieved all the relevant qualificatons with Hull University and worked in various teaching establishment including Harrogate College, Selby College and HMP services. I have taught all different age groups from 14 to adults.

I continued in Lecturering until 2014. Around this period there was a shortage of funding for colleges and apprenticeships and fewer students where entering training. Staff cutbacks followed and I found myself beginning to take on building work again, which I have since enjoyed. So I have again become self- employed and begun pursuing employment in the building trade again.

If you require any damp proofing, bricklaying, plastering or property maintenance, please consider me for your work and I will be happy to discuss any queries and provide a quote.
