    In a chemical lab - squirting stuff into test tubes, weighing things, using the computer and running some machines, its not too bad.
    did you need experience and/or a clinical sciences degree for working in the lab?

    Nope, I've only got A levels. I've had no experience in the field either - but it is good experience itself.

    It would help more if people said what job they're doing, rather than just how much they get paid. I'm an assistant administrator in a pensions actuarial consultancy and I get £19,280 pa, which works out at about £300/week after tax. It's over £10/hour before tax, and between £8 and £9/hour after tax. I should be able to claim back some overpaid taxes though, as I'm off to uni soon.

    I'm going to miss this money.

    I'm a supper girl at a nursing home on £4.60 an hour. I only work two nights a week, two hours at a time, so it's not really that much, but it's alright for the work I do.

    If you have a young persons railcard, you can get a discount on your Travelcard. A day Travelcard is 4.80 (I think) with it.

    ...

    I get 4.95 an hour. Hmm. Time and a half on Sundays and double time on public holidays.

    That is quite similar to what I earn. I earn about £8.30 an hour after tax. How much I earn really depends on how many hours I work as most weeks I work more than are required. I think my actual job title is Data Center and Facilities Planner however for ease of understanding I shall just say I work in the IT sector for a multinational company.
