Sure there's been a thread about this before....just getting it in before someone else does!

I'm a Marketing & Communications Manager for an IT Services company who provide networking, server and desktop solutions for large companies such as banks, councils, corporates etc.

Only started the job a couple of weeks ago so it's all still pretty exciting!

I'm the Technical Support Manager for the ICT Division of our government education department. Sounds really big, but we are a really small division as we look after Apple Macs and they require sooo little support compared with the equivalent PC networks. Really enjoy what I do, but we are in the middle of a huge raft of network changes this summer - re-imaging 4000 computers and making changes to 40+ networks.... roll on September!

I work as a News director at the Samiradio (native/indigenous radio) channel of Swedish Radio, the public-service-adfree-governemtfunded radio in Sweden also known as SR. It's good money and I get to travel alot, meet new people and boss around.
Sometimes I don't like it that much becuase my journalistic ideology doesn't always match the managements.

I am a Project Manager/Area Lead for Royal Mail in Devon and Cornwall working on Delivery Best Practice project.

I work a 41 hour week, its complete flexi time which is awesome as I work when I want. Work Monday - Friday although do the odd Saturday here an there if I need to.

Job invovles lots of travelling at 40p a mile which is nice and as well as my Degree the company has paid for me to take my PRINCE qualification and also studying Level 5 Diploma in management with the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) (stage 1 of an MBA) which they are also funding. Couple that with the final salary pension scheme, private healthcare, bonus, colleague shares, company laptop/mobile etc...... I have very little to worry or moan about.
