Can't decide what to do and as I can't get a job as a midwife am looking for ideas.

So far been a tram driver appeals. Do not want to work in an office.

If I was young enough to re-train, I'd go for the job of Occupational Therapist... especially working with the elderly.

I've been doing job matching for the NHS for the past couple of years. This involves reading all the job descriptions of every post going. OT was way the best I thought.

I've always fancied being a florist.

OrmIrian Wed 04-Jul-07 12:50:38

Florist is mine geordiesmum!!! I've always wanted to do it. I've wanted to do it for years and years. I've wanted to do it ever since I was a little girl...... I have I have I have!

Doula might be good. Delivery driver but only if I got to drive to lovely places with no traffic and be allowed to come home every night in time for dinner and bed.

Don't expect I will though.

I always fancied being a BBC researcher. Have no idea how one becomes one tho. Or a wedding/party planner - how fab would it be to spend someone else's money organising glamorous events???

Nip Wed 04-Jul-07 15:10:15

I have always wanted to be in event management! Never really pushed myself to look too far into it as i'm scared of having no job!
I'll jump when pushed!

A flower delivery person...or I'd love to work for a record company and be responsible for putting together record compilations..

Not sure how you get into that though..

BBBleedingGumsMurphy Wed 04-Jul-07 15:14:03

I would be an educational psychologist.

francagoestohollywood Wed 04-Jul-07 15:18:36

I would have loved to be a bbc researcher . And a midwife. And a doctor. Or just had the guts to become a historian, as I had planned years ago.

nailpolish Wed 04-Jul-07 15:18:53


best job ever ever ever

paolosgirl Wed 04-Jul-07 15:21:49

A midwife - sadly can't afford to retrain

There's a new website called Yourjob4myjob - a job exchange website - I'm going to put my details on it, in case anyone fancies being a NHS information officer!

aDad Wed 04-Jul-07 15:23:35

underwater photographer

BBBleedingGumsMurphy Wed 04-Jul-07 15:24:33

no but worked for the BBC and main point of contact for me was one of the researchers and he had a hell of a time and alwyas seemed under loads of pressure.

event manager is an awful job, very stressful and full of difficult people.

I quite fancy being a radio announcer for Radio 4. "And here is the news... and now over to Ambridge..."
