    Personal Profile

    My name is Dean Drake; I am 19 years old and have just finished a three year advanced plastering course at West Herts Dacorum College in Hemel Hempstead, in which I passed with distinction. I am a good worker and will always give 100 percent to the things I enjoy doing, and I’m a creative person with a keen eye for detail. I work well on my own and use my initiative, but I'm also very good when working as part of a team, I will always listen to others and take on board their opinions and advice. I have my own car and a full and clean driving license, and my hobbies include football and fishing.

    I have worked with a few plasterers on different occasions over the last couple of years, and was given the opportunity to work on my own as well as working as part of a team. I learnt a lot and enjoyed being able to gain different experiences and techniques and be given expert advice by the professionals I was working alongside. I also enjoyed the experience of working in different environments.

    I have since developed my own personal portfolio, designed flyers, and on producing these I have completed several plastering jobs. All the work which I have completed I thoroughly enjoyed and worked to what I believe to be a high standard. I am reliable, tidy and will always strive to work to the very best of my ability. I am keen to carry on learning in all aspects of plastering and to gain as much experience as possible. I realise that I need to work with experienced plasterers for me to progress further and I would like to be given the opportunity to show you my work.

    Aspects of plastering which I have covered over three years:

    Internal Plastering

    External angles, Internal angles, Finishing coats, Patching walls, Curved walls, Floating ceilings, Patching ceilings, Plaster boarding, Dry lining.

    External Plastering

    Pebble dashing, patterns and decorative affects, Tyrolean finishes, plain face render.


    Floor screeds.

    Hi I have just completed my first year of a two year Citb nvq level 2 plastering apprenticeship where I am learning to skim, render, floor screed and create decorative cornice. I am currently employed with a building and maintenance company that works on London Underground, but they are not giving me any site experience and I am very unhappy with constant night work which is causing problems at home! I am looking for someone willing to take me on and carry on my apprenticeship. I am 25 and live in Rayleigh Essex. I have quite a few tickets including, first aid, manual handling, working at height, asbestos awareness, pasma, and harness, trained.

    Email address is: samuelmeek90@gmail.com

    Many thanks.

    Lives in: Newcastle-under-Lyme

    Looking for: A company to take me on as an apprentice.

    Personal statement:

    I have been working as self employed for the last 3 years with a joiner for Novus and sadly this has been unsatisfactory preventing me from completing my apprenticeship in joinery. So this led me to be interested in a plastering apprenticeship as I would like to progress quickly to a trade. I understand what it takes to work in a trade as I have been on price work for the time working with my previous joiner. Additionally using computer skills via email, to do the invoicing for all work we carried out.

    I have a full driving license and a green CSCS card so am good to go on site. I am easy to get on with and like to get on and get the job done. I am willing to travel and do what is necessary, get my hands dirty and complete a job.

    I am aware that I am over the age threshold for free education so have put money aside to pay for the course.

    Feel free to contact me for any information you may need.
