Jobs in tool hire can help you to achieve the same aims that drive your desire to do DIY around the home - and fill in some of the gaps that might be left in other professions.
A study published in the Journal of Consumer Research shows that men have different reasons for having an interest in DIY.
For many men, carrying out maintenance tasks around the home is a way of contributing towards the general wellbeing of the household.
However, for those in professional careers, DIY takes on a new role, allowing them to put their hands to work in a way their day jobs might not permit.
The study's authors explain: "DIY home improvement is a therapeutic escape from the burdens of 'knowledge' work, allowing them to experience a blue-collar fantasy by working with their hands."
Carrying out an endless string of tasks around the home might be unrealistic for many people; however, jobs in tool hire can fill that same gap.
Tool hire jobs offer a good balance between the 'blue-collar fantasy' of working in the construction industry, while still requiring a reasonable amount of office skills to keep up with the administrative side of the role.
In this way, men and women alike can enjoy a new lease of life in a job that fills all of their day-to-day desires, regardless of their previous career history.
