Prison service? Fooferfish loves his new career in corrections.

Fire service?

Or go to college to totally retrain in something like radiography?

Or google 'cmc markets nz' seeing as you have fiscal saavy..unlike me. Want to sell some?

Plod & prison service no but fire service need volunteers. Radiography I have thought about this a few yrs ago when we took our son to a careers night at school it looked great. I will google cmc markets nz also

Cheeries ;)

I retrained as a Teaching assistant and took a new career path into primary education. Was the best decision I have ever made, every day I can honestly say I love my job! Working with the kids certainly puts a smile on my face.

Ever thought of opening or running a wee cafe?

Teaching young people or vulnerable people to cook - a long lost skill these days?

Doing something really cheesy within the tourist industry? Buy a big red bus and run Angela's Big Red Bus Tours of ..... (insert where you live) he he

Have to admit, if I could afford the time without salary to re-train I would give serious thought to radiography. The big CT scanners absolutely fascinate me and I would like a job where you can make a difference for people!

Rob made a complete change and trained as a Registered Nurse - he's now got a fab job he loves in mental health.
