Mostly in Norfolk (RAF Marham), but sometimes in more 'exciting' places like Afghanistan and aquascaping in photo studios etc.

I work for Lloyds Banking Group but before the "takeover" of HBOS was at Cheltenham & Gloucester part of the Lloyds TSB Group.

I currently manage the risk on the mortgage portfolio of the Lloyds Banking Group (1 in 4 mortgages in the UK), which has mortgage brands of Lloyds TSB, Halifax, Bank of Scotland, Cheltenham & Gloucester, Intelligent Finance and Birmingham Midshires.

I really enjoy it as it has a good mix of computer programming in SAS, mathematics (from my degree) and thinking involved.

Luckily, my department hasn't been involved in any job cuts as we perform a vital role for the bank, namely setting the risk appetite and Basel/provision models.

I'm town centre manager for Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and Grasmere. Lots of water, lots of moss, lots of rocks...

Oh, and agreed, Saintly's work looks beautiful - great to see genuine craftsmanship alive and well.

Poor you - imagine having to work in that part of the world... I used to drive to Carlisle quite a bit for work and found it hard to resist turning off to the Lakes en-route.

I'm an IT Analyst - deep joy o_O

I was a car mechanic for 7 years working for Ford then BMW both as a diagnostic technition. I then decided to go to uni and study Motorsport Engineering. i have compleated 2 years of a HND (and qualified) at Swansea Met and i am starting at UCLAN in two weeks to do a Degree in the same subject.

i am impressed by the lead work there is some skill there is a shame that more people cant produce work like that!! :lol:
