    Browsing the forum I often wonder what different people do for a living. Im sure there will be a massive range from high paid positions to menial jobs to people out of work.

    I work for Southern Water in the technical department (call centre) dealing with anything from burst water mains to contaminated water supplies. Just applied to join the performance team which trains people to do the job I currently do and for the billing department. Was a scaffolder till 8months ago a 21" tube broke my foot!

    So, what do you do for a living?

    IT. Used to be office based doing stuff over the phone, but recently started going to customer sites getting more involved in the hardware side of things. More variety but also a lot of driving! Swear there's already been a thread for this not so long ago?

    I work for a photography company based at Sandhurst Military Academy; organising big group photographs of army regiments, filming parades, doing artwork for mounts on Adobe Illustrator and various office admin work. Pay is below average for my age but I enjoy it and there's room for progression.

    My office is in the basement of this building:

    Yeah bad joke, sorry.




    I work for an oil and gas company, but i have nothing to do with cool stuff like drilling and armoured cars. Im a glorified receptionist called a Travel Coordinator, i just book flights, hotels, transport and keep the rest of the admin plebs in order (most of them cant even file stuff in alphabetical order)
    Gets me paid tho, cant complain. Wouldnt wanna lose this job.
