  • Comfortable with using a range of hand tools and pipe tools
  • Good understanding of health and safety practice, as candidates will be required to work alongside and operate naked flame torches
  • If brazing has not been undertaken, then experience in TIG welding or silver-soldering would be highly advantageous
