    I don't work because im a student. Im due to start my criminology and criminal justice degree in October.

    I do however volunteer for the drugs intervention programme. We help addicts who have been arrested for trigger offences (theft etc) get clean. Its interesting how your perception of someone can change once you get to know a bit more about the backgroung of why etc

    I don't work either because I took early retirement. For the first 20 years of my working life I was a qualified Architectural Technician. For the rest of the time I was in PC and network support and software testing. I now do one day a week as a volunteer with the RSPB designing and using Excel spreadsheets.

    IT job again here.

    I work for a small company in Stroud, Glos - where I have been for the last 6 years. Will be moving on very soon though.

    I do all sorts here but my main job is Windows Server management & infrastructure installation for customers.

    I just graduated a couple of weeks ago so therefore I am a bum, but I've been working in a restaurant part time for the past 9 years. Searching for a proper job at the moment though!

    I am due to start my Trainee Auditor contract with the Audit Commission in September, will be moving to the South in 2010 as I will be covering the Berkshire and Surrey area.

    Long awaited as I graduated in 2009 but the job market was/is dire!

    I am trying to find out where to move to as those are two huge counties, Reading seems to be in the middle.

    Does anybody know that region? As an auditor I visit client sites, we don't have our own office there but work out of the Wokingham Council Office when we need to.

    Any Audit Commission people on here?

    Thanks!!
