A linesman, also known as a lineman or lineworker, is a type of electrical worker who maintains and builds electric powerlines and the surrounding equipment. It is a skilled, outdoor trade requiring training and licensing (see 'Qualifications', below) as you will be working with high voltages, meaning that there is a risk of electric shock. As a skilled trade, there is the potential for self-employment, or you may work full-time for a company, depending on what you want to do. However, whatever career path you take, you will be performing similar kinds of work.
There is a fair amount of specialised equipment, as not only will you need various safety gear to protect you from the risk of electric shock, you will also mainly be working high up, requiring a whole other set of gear. Don't let the risks put you off, though: Training is extensive and repeatedly covers all aspects of safety so, as long as you follow the correct procedures, you should be fine.
50% of current opportunities are permanent, whereas 50% are contract jobs.
