What type of e learning? I work on English proficiency. Don’t hear much about Oxford. Cambridge run the show and appear equally as chaotic.

Lms.. Oxford university, we've worked for them several times through the years on different platforms. Most of our clients are universities, we used to focus on open source but now we're doing whatever comes.

It's been obviously a good year judging by the amount of work, we had to reject lots of jobs as we're quite small. Can't really complain about my company but I will not accept another year like that one though.

I do translation and interpreting work. Mostly business related. I run my small indie company but I'm currently in the process of moving abroad (temporarily) in order to work for a bigger company.

I work for the Northern Ireland Civil Service in the Department of Finance. I've been with DoF for about 3 years now but I've been a Civil Servant for about 14 years altogether.

My current role is related to rates. If you receive Universal Credit you are entitled to a portion of your rates paid for you, this can be anything up to and including 100% of your rates. I currently process refunds for anyone who has paid rates before their claim and have since been awarded Rate Rebate.

I've been part-time for the last 2 years, I only work 3 days a week as full-time childcare is just too expensive. Our local daycare was charging nearly £1000 a month to look after our youngest child 5 days a week and then for my eldest son to attend their after school club.

As well as my job I'm a Trade Union Rep for our branch and a member of our local committee, I currently hold the role of vice-secretary and I'm the equal opportunities rep. Despite this part of my work being completely voluntary it gives more job satisfaction than my actual job. I just love arguing with managers to be honest.

Childcare is a bit insane isn't it. 

We were paying $50 CAD a day to send our child to daycare. So that would have been $1,000 CAD a month or 600 quiiiiiiiiiid. Our local government just introduced $25.00 a day - they did this so that they could stay in power. I'm hearing the Canadian government is going to try and implement a mandatory (cap) $10 a day - funny enough a federal election will be brewing soon!

:D nah I'm a qualified chemist that decided I wanted a career involving money rather than the lab tbf. So yeah, failed chemist really.

It's actually a great job tbf. Been doing it for just over 3 years now - I recruit into the biotech industry and spend my days talking with people about really interesting science.
