    I'm a Quantity Surveyor, work for Severn Trent Water.

    But more interestingly my first job out of school was a beekeeper's assistant.

    I once applied for a job as a site manager for Anglian Water but it smelt of shit so I turned that down.

    Beekeepers assistant sounds glamourous and I do like honey.

    Nah, it's ok - I work on the clean water side, mostly people there smell like disinfectant.


    That Beekeeping job was fucking weird tho: I spent my days sweating my tits off in a bee suit, riding in a landrover with a desperate Dan look-a-like and getting stung at least 10 times a day. They didn't even bother taking off the majority of the Honey as it was a research facility.


    I also spent possibly the worst hangover I've ever had there, cataloging the contents of the scientific freezer - 30+ dead seagulls and bags and bags of dead bees pale

    When I used to live in Oakham, Rutland, to get anywhere you had to go towards Peterborough, I always remember riding to rallies and passing the research and development of peas centre and thinking what a fucking cool job that would be.

    I work in the technical department in the Billerud paper mill. The job ranges from research and development to the environment. We make some quite "interesting" paper..
