Ceiling fixers install suspended ceilings and hide and protect unsightly and potentially dangerous materials such as wiring, pipework, heating and air-conditioning systems.
Salaries typically depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do. Self-employed ceiling fixers set their own pay rates.
There are no formal qualifications needed to become a ceiling fixer. However it is generally recommended to complete Standard Grades/National 4 or 5s/GCSEs in English, mathematics and a technological subject.
Experience in woodworking or building work is useful but not essential.
Some ceiling fixers may complete a SVQ/NVQ Level 2 in Interior Systems to enter the profession, while others may complete a construction apprenticeship for a ceiling fixer firm.
