I run a pub

Not brilliant money, but I do get a 9 bedroom flat and 2 acres of garden to roll about in gratis, and effectively work my own hours.

Looking to go corporate, but don't think I could cope with 9am starts..

For a local authority? Which one? I run a cleaning company and we do kitchen cleans. I have long list of places I'd never eat at. I guess you have too.

2006 BMW 335d  [0.00]
I'm a self employed software engineer. I work mainly in the car industry, in "body in white", prior to paint. I've also worked in the Nuclear industry.

I program PLC's to control production lines, conveyors, gas turbines etc. I've contracted for various companies including Landrover, Jaguar, Ford, GM, BMW, GKN & Bruce Power. It can take me all over the world but I try and base myself at home with the wife and kiddies.
