The modern welder is hired to join sections or parts of metal or thermoplastics to each other. This is normally done by melting the joining edges of the two main pieces and adding a filler which will bind the two pieces together.
On this page are listed a number of recruitment agencies that have experience in filling welder positions with all manner of UK and international employers.
As a profession, welding has changed a great deal over the last few decades. It is a complex job that may involve a number of energy sources, including gas flame, laser, electric arc, electron beam, ultrasound and friction.
In the past welders tended to learn the role on-the-job, but today many have undertaken qualifications in order to understand the chemical/physical forces at work. Courses in chemistry and physics are therefore very beneficial. Still, there remain some on-the-job opportunities, such as with the armed services.
The role is best suited to those with an interest in doing a physical job that involves science and engineering, and who are extremely safety conscious.
Welders pay can vary depending on the job, but at least £10 per hour can be expected. Welders working on infrastructure or on oil and gas extraction projects can get paid much more " easily in excess of £40,000 per year.
