Career choices

We all know that after we leave school we have a big decision to make about what career path we will choose. With so many options it can often be a daunting task deciding what you should do in the future. The good news is that there are some great career opportunities out there, some require you to go to university where as others require you to learn on the job.

Whatever you decide you must make sure that it is a job you are passionate about, one that makes you want to get up in the morning and work hard.


To help you on your way I have drawn up a list of three truly great jobs, jobs that people love doing because it stokes that inner fire of passion and commitment.

  • The Armed Forces.

Ever wanted to travel the world and get paid for it, then joining one of Britain’s armed forces can be a very rewarding career. There’s three to choose from The Royal Navy, The Royal Air force and the British Army. With plenty of opportunities to learn a trade within the armed forces such as engineering and mechanics, there’s also plenty of scope for promotion, so if you’re the adventurous type who wants to see the world and learn a trade at the same time then a career in the armed forces is for you.

  • A nurse.

If really care for people then becoming a nurse can be a very rewarding career, although this career requires a university degree, the 4 years training it takes to becoming a nurse will be worth it. With plenty of opportunities for promotion and further training opportunities to become a speciality nurse you will never be bored in this career and with plenty of nurse jobs in London and around the UK you will never be out of work.

  • Building tradesman.

With the population ever rising the demand for building tradesmen is also on the rise, with plenty to choose from such as electricians, plumbers, plasterers and brick layers all of which are in high demand. In most cases an apprenticeship will be required in one of these trades, but once fully qualified the opportunity to start you own business is excellent.

I would also love to hear from people who are working in jobs now that are really enjoying every moment.
