    My friend has a garage at his house. You should check there.

    But seriously, why don't you do work experience at a health care clinic.

    For a moment I thought you said "Is there any garbage in Bristol" and I was like WHAT? Is this guy seriously thinking of getting work experience as a binman? :toofunny:
    Garage and garbage looked both familiar to me when I just take a glimpse at them.

    Oh makes sense!

    These are the skills you need:


    • customer service skills
    • the ability to accurately follow written and spoken instructions
    • strong practical and problem-solving skills
    • the ability to quickly grasp new vehicle technologies

    I suggest that you get work experience that grasps all these skills. Hope this helped.
