    Default I need a career change...

    I really need a new career but have no idea what to even look at, have currently spent the last 10 years in the parts motor trade, got my qualifications associated with it but just bored and fed up with it as the money isn't exactly much. I'm currently just a van driver for a motor factors earning minimum wage but this isn't really what I want to do.

    Would love to start a new career and learn something different, but would like to be earning a decent wage after learning the job. Any ideas on what I could look into doing???

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    I think I'd rather learn something new out of the trade now that way I'm learning something completely different, as if I kinda know the job I'll end up getting bored like I am now.

    Could always try a trade, plenty of money to pick up now.

    Only prob is no money while you are training or very little.
