I have just moved into a new rented house (3 weeks ago) and although the central heating and hot water works absolutely fine, this Wickes LW40CI boiler has been making a little beep sound about every 30 seconds for the last 4 days. Is this an easy one for me to sort out quickly or should I just ring the landlord?
Unfortunately I'm only a fork lift driver and know nothing about this sort of thing. Any suggestions are appreciated. Cheers
Thanks for the advice :) The boiler is in the kitchen in a corner underneath the units, and I'm sure the sound is coming from there. I'll get right under there and see if I can find anything that might have a low battery. What makes it even more annoying is that I have an African Grey parrot in the next room, who's now started copying the noise so even if I get rid of the beeping, I'll still have to bloody listen to it every day! lol

I got some of the job i just need some help thinking of other jobs
Ive been looking for a job for 4months now and just completed a Rtitb course in reach and counterbalance. My job centre adviser has been helping me search for vacancies but no luck. Plus Ive sent many cvs off as-well i've had some replies but only a few in a few months.
What other ideas could be available?
I want to try and settle something once and for all. I work in a warehouse as a order picker and pick people's groceries, making sure that whatever people have ordered is ready for the Home Delivery Team to take them out, now I consider my job tough, strenuous and I believe I have a lot of responsibility, after all if I make a mistake somebody may not get their shopping and this could anger the customer involved. My mate who's older than me reckons that his job is tougher, more stressful and on the whole harder and that he has a lot more responsibility than me, I personally think his job is easy and anybody could do it, not the toughest job in the world, he works as a bus driver, driving double decker buses in & around a city and round towns and to housing estates etc, thing is though he's sat down for most of his day whereas I'm on my feet for most of mine, hence the reason I think my job is tougher.
He wasn't arrogant or anything but I still think my job is tougher, plus lifting certain things such as heavy tins etc is also tough.
I can get my cert updated if i only had the original cert
I have received a letter from the DWP, after an assessment of my condition.
The letter states that I am no longer entitled to receive Incapacity benefits in regard to me having ME and that I am fit to work.
I had an assessment on March 5th 2012 that involved talking to a medical practitioner about how my condition effects my daily life and her seeing how I walked, sat and my range of limb movement. I believe that this assessment was flawed. I was asked if I could wash myself, dress myself and feed myself. I wasn't asked any questions that related to ME but just generic ones that don't give an indication of the impact this condition has on my life. So I was given a score of zero and was told that I a fit to work.
This I disagree with strongly as due to my condition I have to take a 30 minute rest 3 times a day and as I can only drive for a maximum of 10 to 15 minutes before I start to feel drowsy and my employer is located 30 minutes drive away I can not return to them.
As to other employment who will hire a person who needs the rest periods I do ?
I can't stand for any length of time, I don't feel capable of driving any distance or operating any machinery ( I was a Fork Lift driver ).
I have been told that I have the right to appeal but when I am doing this I will lose my Incapacity benefits and will have to claim other help but this will in tail possible job reviews at my local Job seekers centre. As I can't use public transport as the service is restricted in my area I feel I will have to spend money I have not got to try prove I am unable to work.
I thought 2 years but someone told me its 3 ?
Do forklift licences run out after a certain amount of time or can you undertake a refresher course to refresh your skills without having to undertake the full course again?
Can you drive a fork lift truck without a certificate but just with basic or little training
I passed my test for both;
> 5000KG Diesel side loader
> 3000KG Diesel Counterbalance Fork Lift
This was back in September 2000 (11 years ago)
I was driving them for about 18months before I changed career, so its been just under 10 years since the last time I actually drove a fork-lift truck. I'm expecting to hear that both licences have now expired or at the very least I will need to take some type of refresher course.
I know this is hardly relevant but I was a very good driver, I seemed to have a natural talent at judging and controlling the forks. My little party trick was being able to use the forks to pick up a small coin from a flat surface. LOL (although I don't condone this because a fork-lift is not a toy or something to play with)
So are my licences still valid or do I have to re-take my test? Or do I just need to sit a re-fresher course?
leslie_jordan2004: You quite right, I have two pieces of paper that look like certificates. My employer at the time was Travis Perkins Builders Merchants and their company logo is at the top of my certificate.
I am going to enrol on a fork-lift truck driving course,which paper qualification should i obtain?
I am a British citizen currently living in the UK, however, I've always dreamt of visiting Australia and working there.
Since the recent cuts in the UK, I am now unemployed after a 5 year stintworking for my local council in England.
Prior to my last job, I was a fork lift driver for 2 yrs, but now my licence has run out and is now void so I'd have to retake my tests etc (but obviously I have experience of working on sites).
I'm obviously looking for a change of career and would like to take advantage of the hardship of trying to gain employment nowadays in the UK.
I realise there is a boom in mining in Aus, however, I have no experience or trade qualifications so I would expect to start at the unskilled lower end of things so to speak.
Can anyone advise me as to the best course of action to take in gaining employment (and what sort of jobs are available to me) in the mines within Australia and wether it is infact possible or even worthwile for a UK man like myself.
Obviously I'd have to travel from the UK, but my main concerns are the types of jobs available (if any), the pay rates I'd be looking at, and accomodation while working there.
Please note that I'm 36yrs old, in very good health, male and have no criminal record, drug or alcohol issues.
What are my options if any ?
I have Latvian Driving License (B, C, D cat.) + Driver Certificate of Professional Competence issued in Latvia + Forklift Driving License issued in Latvia as well. Can I get driving job in UK with my license or I have to change it to British ones? I am not British resident, and going to come to UK just for couple years.
One of the answers on here says no but I have never heard of any restrictions, I know there are driving restrictions on the road.
UK law please.
I can claim earning money (from a job) washing cars, being a 'cowboy' in a Fr Christmas Cave (!?) and various things up to addressing conferences of School Principals, writing for leading newspapers and advising Government bigwigs on (personal) money management.
And I've no doubt MANY of you can also claim just as varied, propably more, work experience.
FQ - Now aged 60/65+ do you feel such store of experience is too easily dismissed, nowadays - to the loss of the current generation(s) ?
Edit - probably (whoops !)
I hold a full HGV/fork lift truck and various other driving licence's which I gained in New Zealand, I want to try and search for work here at home in the UK, but I think these licence's are not valid here, so I am wondering if there is any kind of top up course I can do to turn these into a valid UK licence so I do not have to go through all tests again as well as pay for them all again?
I have this> chauffeur de camion de chariot élévateur
But i can't seem to find the vacancy on a Frech job site.
