Becoming a bricklayer is not an easy task, but it is a very worthwhile skill to have. The estimated salary for a bricklayer ranges from anywhere from £20,000 to £30,000 + for an experienced bricklayer. Another benefit of becoming a bricklayer is that houses and buildings will always need building and maintaining, meaning there will always be work available to those that want it.
A bricklayer’s typical day will start at approximately 8AM and finish by around 3PM, the work is physical, so you will need a good work ethic and be able to cope with the physical demands. Most of a bricklayer’s work will be building homes; however, they are important in other areas of construction including partitions, chimney stacks, tunnel linings and archways.
The types of jobs that you will be required to carry out as a bricklayer include:
Cutting bricks to size
Mixing of mortar
Laying horizontal rows of bricks (also known as courses)
Ensuring walls are weatherproof
Ensuring walls are level and securely in place
