Dear Budding Lift Engineer

Lift engineers up and down the country are earning big money, some who own large lift installation companies are millionaires. Others just drift from job to job scraping by earning far less, often years into their careers and somehow missing the boat!

I receive calls from people all over the UK thinking of a career change who also find it increasingly difficult to get into the lift industry - those that do, often do it all wrong!

As a lift training, certification and recruitment expert (my team and I currently work with 33 of the best known clients every month, month in month out) - I have worked with 100’s of lift engineers all over the UK and have helped them earn more money which means that they become more valuable - all at no cost to them!

You have to ask yourself this one question. “Would I benefit from this type of unique approach and specialist knowhow?”

We’re able to train you so you’re more skilled at your job (which means you become more valuable) and certificate you to externally recognised standard where you’ll be awarded an EOR/202 ‘Lift Safety’ qualification (which also means you become more employable).

Furthermore, by combining these two elements together we may place you directly with an employer (which means your salary increases by default) and this bit doesn’t cost you a single penny!

Request a copy my book today while there’re still available, and I’ll send you a signed copy FREE OF CHARGE by 1st class post - I hope you enjoy it!

Here's to your success!
