I've recently went out on my own 4 months now and bank balance hasn't looked as good in a long while... Any way a job came up with the NHS as a plumber so I applied for it and believe it or not I got the job as a NHS plumber and I start in December.. also I'm wanting to keep up my gas and oil work as a side line but through the books but not sure how this would work? I've gathered it's not really plumbing as such but it's a secure job with pension and the possibilities of climbing the career ladder? My other half isn't happy cause I could earn double than what the NHS is offering but jobs like this are like hens teeth. 37.5 hours a week from 8am til 4pm. Really hard choice to make.
