Tradesmen are often viewed as skilled manual workers of a particular trade requiring specialised skills for specific types of work often in the construction industry. There is no definitive list of modern skilled trades, although they are often found in the industrial, construction and service skilled trades. The role of skilled tradesmen is often varied and ranges from working on new buildings to the maintenance of existing ones. Many tradesmen work fulltime for main contractors or specialist firms, many are self-employed, sub-contracting their labour on a project-by-project basis. New entrants to the industry tend to train on the job, with trade apprenticeships becoming with widely available, potentially leading to technical or supervisory occupations.
