If you could have any job…
I loved my old job as a arborist (tree feller) and cutting grass on ride on mowers, tunes on shorts and sunglasses, awsome but alas it is seasonal so may be back in march!!!
There was a dream job a while back for a caretaker on a desert island nr oz great money family could stay free and u just looked after the island, some jammy student nabbed it, was in the paper im sure.
Atm my brother has a good job, working on the fracking in blackpool looking for shale gas, he drives a tracked bobcat and **** about with huge drills all day.Posted 5 years agojekkylMember
Lake District Fell Top assessorPosted 5 years ago
I like the idea os ‘assessor’ – it sounds liek you don’t actually have to *do* anything just flit about vaguely.
“I assessed the top of that fell yesterday and noted that it was still there and I’m off to do that one over there today.”

I gained my tickets when i worked for connaught, as they went into admin i was a (painter/foreman) then some of their contracts were bought by fountains who did motorway tree felling/grass cutting so i got tuped over and became a tree feller, then got a 6month contract with the local council, atm im in a stop gap doing spray booth instalation and commercial gas/air/water pipe fitting, its shite dirty and crap pay. A good job im looking into is working with naughty kids, minimal training, get paid to go mountainbiking,paintballing etc job satisfaction and good money as my failed attempts at being in the old bill wound me up.Posted 5 years agolapierreladySubscriber
If I wasn’t married, and didn’t have a job already that I quite like, I would definitely be looking at private tutoring abroad. There’s a job in the TES at the moment at £70,000 and a flat in Barcelona to coach a pupil for US college admission. I saw one last year that was offering £100,000 and a flat in NY! Oh, but the proviso was you had to be on-hand to tutor wherever the family was in the world- at their home in Verbier or Mustique as well as NY…tough lifePosted 5 years ago
what would it be?
only caveats, no lengthy/expensive training required. i.e no airline pilots/astronaughts etc, has to be uk based too.
so, jobs like working for an events company or a bike distributor etc
not that i’m looking for inspiration or anything, oh no… 🙄 😉Posted 5 years agojonbaMember
Google trekker, although I’d prefer to map the bike trails of the UK.Posted 5 years agowillardMember
Farrierering is not that glamerous. My cousin is one and the total rewards for the job is a bit shit to be fair. Out in all weathers, large risk of personal injury, hard work. The bloke that taught him said it was a young man’s game and the went to teach it.
I’m really not sure what I’d like to be. Maybe some sort of uber-hacker, making gadgets and stuff. Either that or the boss of a private security company or something. At least the travel perks of the latter would be good.Posted 5 years agogrumMember
want to be professional photographer, weddings, that sort of thing. Easy money!
Cycling or sports photography, I bet it’s not really that difficult either.
What’s stopping you then?
My job/jobs is/are pretty sweet. I don’t earn a fortune but then I don’t work that much either. I work for a charity running music workshops and organising festivals/events, and I’m a photographer -weddings that sort of thing. 😉Posted 5 years agotoby1Member
There was a picture a few years back of a guy who was tweaking J-Lo for a photo shoot, could be worse.
On a river tour in Dartmouth I think it was there was a story of a guy who was salaried to look after a wealthy persons boat on the river, essentially, running it up and checking it over once a month, earning about £35k, could be worse.
Fashion photographer would also not be the most horrible way to earn a living, bitumen I’m not sure I’d be able to cycle t work any longer, so maybe not.Posted 5 years ago
