I started working life as a glass collector in a night club at 16 ended up getting the resident dj spot for best part of 4 years after nagging the manager, ended up playing in some clubs in leeds and wakefield finished a few years back though as it was eating away at my spare time and wanted my life back (miss it like hell now!)

while djing i also worked for a funiture company building frames for reclining chairs sofas and other chairs, left there about 3 years ago now and currently work for one of the uks leading bespoke canvas printing companys as the admin & print manager loving every minute of it!

bit of a mess my working life but happy were i am now

You have nothing to lose so why not go all out!?  You will neve realise the opportunities that may be available to you once you do it!  If you think it will make you happy then go for it!

After finishing school I went to University.
Was working at Sainsburys refusing alcohol left right and centre.
Then had to do my National service.
Then was a graduate structural engineer.
Then a structural engineer.
And now a director.
This thread makes me feel old. Blush
The National Service interests me! Do you have dual nationality if you don't mind me asking? Or am I missing something obvious?
Oh, know of any good jobs for an RC specialist on the contracting side? I miss my formwork chippies and rust covered steel fixers. Utilities are so boring!
Its a long story, but to cut the long story short I am from Finland and hence am I Finn.

Well at the moment no I dont know of any but the world is so small that you never know.

As for discounts I can't use my staff 40% discount with them because I am not 25 and they will not insure anyone on a car over a group 15 unless you are 25 or over :(

I'm looking for job now. Guys, how to combine work and study more successfully? I have some problems with this aspect of my life, because it is very difficult to combine work and study. After work, very often I come home tired and there is no time to learn something quite successfully. Now I need to start writing a dissertation, but I do not know how to allocate time for this. That is why I turn UK writing service https://uk.edubirdie.com/write-my-dissertation. I looked at their portfolio, samples of the work they wrote. I really liked the level of professionalism and quality.
