    Been chatting to Ellebear, and the subject got onto work.
    I bet we have all sorts of different trades out there, so thought it would be good to have a little nose, and you never know we might even be able to help each other out with advice etc.

    I am a Health & Safety Manager for a Civil Engineering Company, totally love my job even though the hours are long and I frequently get soaked out onsite!

    So what about everyone else?

    I am a bookkeeper, and after being laid off last November, I work for myself at home.
    I have a few clients and hope that it will grow. I love it, and wouldn't like to go back to working for anyone again.

    I work for the london ambulance service as an Emergency Medic.
    IE i am the one onthe end of the phone to guide you until the ambulance gets there. I love it. I have delivered babies, helped save lives by instruction CPR over the phone but then you get the downside..... last xmas day i dealt with mainly hangings all day :(

    Very very rewarding job.

    Got the most rewarding job at the moment.................... on on maternity leave looking after my gorgeous baby boy born new years eve. xxxx

    I (along with loads of others on here if I remember rightly) am an Administrative Officer with the civil service. Basically if your on benefits and have a problem, I'm the person who tries to help over the phone. Not a greatly rewarding job I must say, and with a new government, I suspect not the most secure job either :s

    My job title is 'Logistics Co-Ordinator' but I do way more than that, customer services, sales, operations, IT development, training, accounts and so on. I work for a company that supplies products to the gas & oil fields worldwide & I love my job.

    Im a home care assistant (no explanation needed!) but I also work for a nursing agency and do bank shifts at the hosptial. I think my job is more emotionally draining although some days I am knackered as well and crawl through the front door.

    Must enjoy it though as i have been in the care sector for 10 years now! x

    I work as Payroll and Nursing administrator for a Nursing/Recruitment agency. Was full time but due to the recession have been made part time, so trying to find a new job at the moment. Would love to do something in the Accountancy direction and would love to gain some qualifications. :)

    Wow!!! You've had your work cut out!!!
    Don't say 'only' part-time! Those I've known who've worked part time always seemed to work a lot harder than those of us in the office all day :D
