Personal statement As a tiler I would cover walls or floors with tiles, on jobs ranging from tiling a kitchen or bathroom inclusive sound insolation, to fitting out a shop, hotel or restaurant.

My tasks: • Mark out areas and choose the right amount of tiles and paste • Repair or remove old surfaces • Cut tiles using different tools • Prepare surfaces with plaster, sand or cement • Fix tiles and apply grout • Buy materials and look after budgets • Talk to customers about their ideas
