Engineer. Which allows me to run and swim in many locations all over Europe. And what my life slowly slip away in airports.

Used to work as a mechanical engineer in R&D until the whole show I was performing in moved south and I refused to go with it. So I started a spot of clearing up gardens for old ladies. Seven years later I can tell you its better than working and pays better too.

I work in a compliance department for a professional services company..... That means I'm an expert in more obscure rules and regulations than it is possible to shake a stick at........ ZZZZzzzzzzzzz

My aspiration is to be able to afford to not need to work.

Chartered Chemical Engineer in the oil and gas industry. I specialise in analysing and hopefully preventing large accidents such as Gulf of Mexico, Buncefield, etc.

Really interstering job, well paid, great prospects, travelled the world, met great people and my job makes a difference to society. Would recomend engineering to anyone.

Well paid!! Oh I can only dream of that

We are desperately short of engineering graduates in my area; third go into the city, about 20% into accountancy. By the time you take out those who don't want a career in engineering there's not many left.

I have a friend who works for a company who helps FTSE 500 companies run the engineering "milk round" at universities and if you have a first from a Russell Group University and can string a sentence together you are likely to get 4 or 5 job offers from big name companies.

All of this has meant that pay levels have rocketed in my profession. If you are willing to go to former USSR or the Sandpit £150k salaries for people with 15 years experience are typical. All tax free as well.

My teaching degree was in Physical Education with Outdoor Education as my second subject. I used to teach secondary school, last job in a school was head of a PE dept in a tough school in Bristol. Then moved on to lecturing in FE, mainly teaching people how to teach and coach sport. I also work as an associate lecturer at a university marking and moderating on sports science and teaching degrees. However, that is infrequent work as I'm expensive to outsource to.

My regular job now is working still in FE but in Exams and LIS part time, not lecturing, I've done my bit at the chalk face and needed something different. I still do some sports coaching, mainly in my kid's school.

What the future holds? Dunno yet.
