Need a new career?
Success isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be

Plumbing can be the perfect new career for women.

Many seemingly successful women are finding that high status jobs aren’t always the bed of roses they’ve been lead to believe in by our driven culture.

We’ve been surprised at the calibre of the women who join us to become Stopcocks Women Plumbers; corporate women, doctors, teachers, women who’ve had very responsible positions in the public sector are all members of Stopcocks.

After a certain time, responsibility but not the power to dictate when you work, how you work and not having the time to work to the level of excellence you know you’re capable of can begin to grate.

Coupled with the stress created by not seeing partners and families, this can lead to illness and even burn-out.

Our plumbers all talk about their improved quality of life and better balance between work and family.

After years of high heels and power dresses many women are happy to swap to boots and a boiler suit and get their hands dirty to be able to see a job through to the end, do it well and directly help people improve the quality of their lives.

Plumbing can fit the bill if you’ve always longed to be more hands on or been driven to distraction by plumbers not turning up or doing jobs inefficiently.

It doesn’t even mean you won’t be able to look glamorous at work
