Lead Sheeting Operatives specialise in lead sheeting work on a variety of buildings from domestic housing to listed structures, churches and cathedrals.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do.
Working as a roofer is one way into this profession and will give you on-site experience that many employers ask for. However, lead sheeting work is very specialised and you will need to complete training to master this roofing technique.
Some employers may agree to provide training through an apprenticeship scheme.
The Lead Sheet Training Academy (LSTA) offer a range of specialist courses to help you to advance in this field including those for heritage projects.
In addition to having specific training and expertise, many building contractors will want you to have a Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) accreditation card before you can work on their sites.
