Job seeking, looking for a New Challenge

Job seeking, looking for a New Challenge

As I’ve mentioned in the previous post, I’ve just come out of employment with a company for 10 years so I’m ready for a new challenge. It would obviously be easier to stick to what I know but I’ve spent the last 10 years working at a desk, sat at a computer, answering the phone. I wanted something completely different, something I had no experience in previously but where I could hopefully adapt some of the skills I learnt. I’m happy to do courses if required and achieve the relevant qualifications if there’s something fresh and new that particularly interests me. My old job paid an ok wage of around 25k before tax but that was at management level and it was hard-work for the money. Working long hours on shift. Ideally I wanted more pay, something more active and definitely something more interesting.

Crime Scene Cleaner

This is when I started to look at unusual jobs that people may not really consider as a career path but which in fact pay pretty damn good money. Did you know that average Crime Scene Cleaner can earn around £40.000 pounds a year? Apparently if you’re at the top of your profession, you can be looking at bringing home a 6-figure sum. OK, this can be a dirty, smelly job and require long hours, often in confined space. I suppose this is also going far beyond normal cleaning duties but the pay packet is appealing for sure. Whilst I may not go down this route, I have been looking into what qualifications and experience you’d need to gain and whether this is a career path worth considering. I’m still young so there could be plenty of time for me to work my way up in the profession and I’m hungry for something completely new and different. I have a pretty strong stomach too which I guess is one of the first requirements.
