My DH is really hating his job right now, to the point where it is making him physically ill and really quite depressed. He wants to leave but doesn't really have an idea of what he wants to do... obviously there are loads of jobs that you don't even hear of, so I'm looking for advice/suggestions if anyone has any!

He is currently working as a personal banking manager for a high street bank, he is the sort of person that you go to see about a loan that then tries to sell you payment protection. He hates doing it as it is all hard-sell and basically trying to sell people stuff they don't need, plus management are very target-oriented so he always feels like he is failing.

Before that he worked for an insurance broker, before that he was a salesman in a bed shop, so all sales/customer service stuff.

He likes interacting with people, he doesn't want to be chained to a desk or have a job with punitive targets.

Any ideas? Anything welcome! Thanks!

Forgot to add... he doesn't have a degree, and in terms of fields he is interested in possibly working with children.
