motosera - sounds like an interesting work history. I'm a public servant - a role in the security 'business' so to speak. Largely policy nowadays (boring)
My last job was in Australian Customs and Border Protection so a lot of overlap with the above. I was also a firearams instructor there.
Cool, yes you probably used ours or one of our main competitors equipment in CBP.

It's not as interesting as it sounds either :D:D but it pays the bills!

I wanted to be a Fire Fighter for many years. Applied to Warwickshire (West Mids froze recruitment at the time) - Didn't get in to Warwickshire :/ I answered the psychometric stuff far too honestly I think. From that day on I promised to make sure I learnt as much as possible.

3 months later West Mids opened up recruitment, someone I knew could have really helped me out, but I was barred from applying to another service for X amount of time.

I'm a research scientist in microbiology at University of Bristol! (officially 'Postdoctoral Research Associate')

I grow bacteria, and find out what happens in different experiments, then create mutants of them (like stopping certain genes from working) to see what effect that gene has on it's behaviour. I'm working on a bacterium that causes (among other things) pneumonia and ear/throat infections (Streptococcus pneumoniae), but my background is with the fungus Candida albicans in dentistry and oral microbiology :)
Take a look at my published research here
