How did you qualify? Was it a fast track course?
Sounds like you need to work alongside somebody but how does that person know you wont then take work off them? Rock and a hard face come to mind.

A lot can depend on your location ! and number of plumbers working it, where are you located ? city, town , country ? my area its very difficult to get into a job, 40 miles up the road massive amount of new build work so it may mean that you have to relocate, or work away from home !!

I lived in Bracknell for 20 years and always plenty of work around that area, you shouldn't have any problems finding a job in your location

Things have changed since you moved on mate nowadays there are plenty of cheap jack of all trades passing as experienced and most people look at the price first and you second.
Local neighbourhood web site lets people post jobs and the amount of replies is stupid.
