    How far would you be willing to travel to your place of work? I'm trying to rule out places that would require train fare, but there is NOTHING going in my town atm.

    10 miles Currently work just under a mile from my house at the moment and my next role (got an offer and an interview lined up ) will be about the same.

    I'm searching 20 mile radius. But I live in the middle of nowhere so I would expect to have to drive 20mins+ anyway. The job I'm hoping for is nearly 20 miles away.

    About 5 miles, but bearing in mind for a 16 year old with a lack of money spending £3.20 for a return into town every day doesn't do the wallet any favours! I currently work a mile away and cycle there so it's pretty good

    10 miles at the most. My current problem is that with the job I've just got, the bus to the town (6 miles away) is only hourly, costs £3.70 return (more than my £3.53 hourly wage grr) takes an hour for some weird reason, and doesn't run on Saturdays....guess what day I'm going to be working! Sooo, mum/dad taxi is going to be needed...unfortunately...
