Our Story…

After initially starting on one course that showed me how to sharpen a pencil, a career shift led me into my perfect role in the plumbing world.

Jonathan James was established in September 2009 after qualification from college following a three-year course (completed in two years) in plumbing, unvented cylinders and Gas Installation. Upon conclusion of my studies I was awarded the ‘Alan Heath’ shield for the top NVQ student over 6 colleges across Warwickshire.

During these years I was an apprentice with a gas engineer who was also a tutor at college to gain the practical and on site experience and knowledge required. At the age of 19 I decided to make the bold step to set up my company and became a sole trader.
