Looking for plastering work experience to increase confidence

Hello all,

I've recently gained my city and guilds plastering qualification with the aim of starting a new career in this field. I have done a couple of small jobs (bathroom ceilings) but want to gain more experience doing bigger projects. The problem for me is my confidence. Preferably I would like to work alongside a time served Plasterer to get more experience, and turn build my confidence. However, all the local firms I contact are never interested or get back to me.

I live in Haslemere in Surrey. Is there any local (or nearby) plasterers out there who would consider offering me the chance to work alongside them? Or any advise on how i can get my foot in the door.

P.s. I work as a carer to pay the bills, and part time as a labourer (2 days a week) as I thought this may get me some contacts or opportunities, but it hasn't proved fruitful so far.

Just keep going mate, be relentless in contacting all the local firms near you and you will eventually get your break, for a lot of small companies taking someone on is a big step so you got to let them know how much you really want it.
Best of luck
