    So I have worked as a veterinary assistant for around 3 years and have had enough. I want a completely new career but have no idea what in. I don't think I even want to work with animals anymore which is what I always wanted to do when I was younger.
    I only have GCSEs and a BTEC in Animal management. The only non animal related job I have had was working Ina small cafe for a few weeks.
    I enjoy medicine but am not smart enough to become a doctor and wouldn't like to become a nurse. I like the idea of working in a and e but am looking for more out of the box ideas, stuff I would have considered before.
    I want a well paying job as am fed up of being on minimum wage, ideally I don't want to be sitting down all day but will conder.
    Thanks for any suggestions I'll consider ANYTHING

    How about paramedic?
    Theres a good list of graduate careers here

    But keep an open mind and just look at job adverts to see which areas interest you.

    You should also go and see your local careers advise advisor at least do some research that can help you understand what you like and are good at.

    Any of these three books

    Paramedic is a good call. You could also look into working as a 999 operator in one of the response centres.
