Certified electricians are wanted, ten of them to work in UK coal industry, here's the details if your interested.
I am working on behalf of a UK coal mine. I have 10 permanent vacancies for MQB qualified electricians paying £36K +. As you can appreciate there are not many mqb qualified electricians active out there in the UK anymore. Therefore I am exploring all the avenues I can to reach people who would appreciate the opportunity.
Would you be able to point me in the direction of anybody that would be potentially interested in a permanent coal mine electrician job?
Thank you for taking the time to read my email and I look forward to your reply.

Looks like UK coalmining is going to have an uphill struggle with the inability to fill skilled trades positions. The youngest fellers who qualified before the industry closed it's doors will be approaching 50 years of age, probably pretty settled in "new" careers and unwilling to go back down a pit again.. I believe a few of us remarked on this over a year back when it looked like the industry might start expanding.
that's right john the experienced men have either retired or found new careers.i don't think you would find too many willing to go back down anyway because i think the "being like a family" thing and the camaraderie has gone to what it was.As has been said before the NCB training was second to none and i find it hard to see this can ever be replicated,so i think they will struggle to find good men.
I'd also bet that the companies who want to start an underground coal mine in Scotland, Tata, and the owners of Hatfield not to mention the coal mine scheduled for Kent are going to find it extremely hard if not impossible to find experienced electrical and mechanical engineers to take charge of these projects.
Thatcher and the Tories really screwed up the UK's energy plans.
Seems to me like an ideal opportunity for some 'smart ass' to start translating the M&Q Mechanics and Electrician's Regs. into Hindi, Urdu, Telagu, Polska and Ruski.
Well I suppose they could do that, they could also lower the hurdles, as there are many heavy industry electricians and fitters who could do an underground elec and fitters job very well. We had a few steelworks electricians and fitters at Boulby, and they fitted in well once they got used to mining electrical equipment. They were highly trained by Brit Steel, well up to the same standards as NCB trained tradesmen. Oddly enough, we had one NCB trained elec who proved to be useless too and was let go on safety grounds, he just wasn't up to high production stress. Something I wasn't aware of until that feller "cracked". A blight on someone in the Industrial training branch of the NCB, how they missed him I cannot fathom, he certainly wasn't a "hands on" tradesman.
