    Hi my husband has 25 years within the cable laying business, he is currently a supervisor, we have looked on line for companies but don't seem to be able to find any websites. Does any one know of any companies within the area? :jiggy:

     

    He is dealing with all aspects of cable laying (not jointing) :huh:

     

    Any advice would be greatly received :cute:

    over here most of the cable is either overhead or the electricians do it themselves I didnt know this before I came over I have had to dig trenches :shocked: and lay the conduit ourselves 90% of the cables go in conduit here no armoured cables I have heard they use it on the mining sites hope this helps

    Thanks for the info, my husband lays ducting is this the equivalent to conduit! They lay the ducting and then pull the cable through it....

     

    Also if you don't mind me asking??? are there currently jobs out there for your type of work? what are the rates of pay per hour and how many hours do people work in this kind of job?

    Hi,

    I work as a site supervisor in India for HV cable laying projects. However, I do not have any formal qualification in electric trade industry. My experience though is of over 5 years. You think I can find myself a similar job in australia, and how much would it pay??

    If you do not have any qualications I can not see you getting a job in that trade.
