Systems Accountant. I administer some pieces of Finance software and write pretty reports for people. Bit a see-saw between IT work and Finance work.

There was chatter on the radio the other day about this. Apparently some trusts are buying/supplying new wheelchairs rather than going through the 'trouble' of sanitising the used ones.

well we still clean and maintain the old ones,nhs round here must think its cost effective,i think the company gets about £50 per year to look after a standard manual chair,so its much cheaper than a new one.

Chief Electrician in a theatre.

Basically rigging and operating all of the lighting and sound requirements for shows.

Good, relaxed atmosphere and fairly informal.

Bad, not as much time off as I would like to have fun.
