    Hi All

    I'm 28 and live in sheffield. I have previouse(all be it very little) experience tiling and have decided on a career change. I am currently looking for opportunities to assist at weekends and evenings around my full time job in the car trade.

    My aim is to spend as long as I can stomach my full time job ,learning and getting as much experience as possible in order to be self employed.

    Any help or advice is very welcome
