Keep your head up Mike! I was in the same situation when I started. Make yourself 3 contact lists
1 local electricians
2 larger electrical firms in your area (ie George S Halls in stoke)
3 construction employment agencies in your region
Keep these list through out the years always adding your contacts.
Get yourself a JIB/ECS card graded as a "electrical labourer." This will get you on construction sites. This is important !
Job search should include "cable puller" "electrical Labour" "apprentice electrician" Electrician mate jobs might require more experience, and you may disappoint employers.
I started off as a general labourer with a renovation company during my first year of school and it got me some site experience to put on my CV
Good luck! mike mc
