What job do you do?
I’m an in-house web developer for a procurement company in South Wales. It has its ups and downs, but hugely rewarding knowing the products you create help churches and charities save money on necessary spends and can pump that money back into their communities!
Why do you don what you do?

I’m a Senior Support Worker. Have half the week at home and half away. Have the long shifts and the fact I dont see the kids everyday. But it pays bills.
13 hour shifts are the killer though.
