After giving up work in 2012 to care for our newly born twins, i decided this was the perfect opportunity to look at a new career and to re-invent myself. I decided to study at night college, with the aim of starting my own business as an electrician. I had a friend i worked with previously who started up his own business as an electrician. I worked with him for free just to get the experience i needed to work in this field,while studying at college. In October 2014, i started up my own business . I joined the CIS scheme in early 2015 where i currently sub-contract for Portland Properties.
