Shift Work
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  North West1 April 2016
Involves shifts so working strange hours can be very unhelpful for a good work/life balance . I worked at different sites around the north west of England which sometimes caused travel difficulties , for instance I used to have to get up at 03.30 in the morning to be able to get to my day shift post before 05.00 , ok travel was easy at this time in the morning but travelling home at 17.00 was a nightmare!
Pros
Civil service job therefore all civil service perks
Cons
Shift work so working at all times of day and public holidays
