      Since university I’ve always worked as an Engineer. Before that I did lots of work experience placements and had a few part-time jobs. For work experience I worked at a stock brokers, solicitors, and in a IT firm. As part-time work I’ve worked as a waitress, bar staff, at waitrose and at superdrug.

      Hi Harry Pottern Unicorn 23! (I like your name!)

      Yes, before being a researcher in the UK, I worked in Mexico trying to develop technology for the National Institute of Rehabilitation. I worked there for 1.5 years, until I decided to do my PhD in Glasgow.

      A fair few part time jobs: Paper boy, KFC, bartender, waiter, promotions.

      I worked for B. Braun medical for a summer placement while at university which was my first exposure to a big company, and now a PhD in Edinburgh.
