Previous New Zealand Young Plumber of the Year Working at KE KELIT Austria

Julian Parker won the inaugural Plumbing World Young Plumber of the Year Award in 2017. The Young Plumber of The Year Competition is aimed at Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers up to the age of 31, whether you are that of an apprentice, tradesman or of certifying level. The competition is judged upon workmanship, accuracy and speed, the finalists competed in plumbing and gas fitting tests based on everyday requirements of the job.

 

The competition gave Julian around $20,000 worth of prizes, including a trip to Fiji to the Plumbing World Shareholders Conference in May 2018. Julian stated “the competition has opened up the opportunity to work for KE KELIT in Austria. Without it, I wouldn’t have met the contacts and friends I now have which led me to this position.”

After winning the competition Julian continued working for Lewis Plumbing in his hometown of Rotorua up until early August 2018 before heading overseas for his long-planned OE. He started in Mexico with some friends and travelled through Central and South America for 4 months before heading towards Europe. “I had always planned to work in London, but when an opportunity came up to work for KE KELIT in Austria I got pretty excited at the thought of it. I felt that it would be a challenge but that I could plenty away from it and extend my knowledge of the industry.”

 

Julian’s job at KE KELIT Austria involves working closely with installers and absorbing industry information from the industry experts he is surrounded by. He has also been presented with the opportunity to attend the annual ISH exhibition in Frankfurt later in the year. “I’ve known about ISH for a few years now and had planned on attending at some point in time. Now I get the best of both worlds going there and supporting KE KELIT.”

 

Julian plans on working for KE KELIT Austria up until June before heading back home to New Zealand. “I’m looking forward to coming home to become a certified gasfitter and enjoy a good old Kiwi lamb roast”.
