    So we've amassed being an old bill, firefighter, army, oil rig worker, footballer, popstar, actor or city trader.

    I think I'll stand by my point the main choice in life for people around my age with no qualifications. With austerity getting a job in the police is massively difficult and competitive aswell as being a fireman. Lads and women in the armed forces are well underpaid and it's shows through our numbers. Lets be honest aswell, average wage of a starting soldier is about 15k. Police officer 20k. Fireman are the only decent earners amidst that lot there. Like I said tho, it's a proper unrealistic suggestion to the general masses out there.

    Offshore oil worker, fair enough - but not going accommodate 100's of 1000's jobs is it for normal everyday people. Besides that, not many people can hack that kind of job.

    Footballer 😂 'recording artist' (get you) and actor haha

    Great suggestions sort out the issues of jobs being supposedly being taken by foriegners.

    Paul, I'll look into that and make an informed reply.

    It's a little tongue in cheek TVF but it used to be the joke/rumor in the 70/80's, the Oxbridge education got the connections/network to get into the city of London Merchant Banks.

    Nick Leeson the guy who bankrupted Barings Bank in the 90's started at the bank straight from school as a clerk and rose to become Chief Trader or something or other despite having no formal financial training. I realize many people receive on the job training and make a success of a career without having formal training but these are incredibly high earners touted as being the brightest and best but it doesn't add up to me.

    There was also a study(ies) where stocks picked at random by a computer produced higher returns than stocks chosen by traditional methods by city traders, so perhaps formal financial training is not necessary or could be detrimental!!

    Apols for being widely off topic.
