My history is Armed forces, security and local government, at times, I wish I'd stayed there :sldoh:

Mixture of backgounds at my outstation:

Armed forces, police, security, ambulance, local government, customer services in shops, engineers, I even know of one who worked in McDonalds (not just a McJob).

We have a varied mix but know of one outstation where about 50% of TOs are ex-police officers.

Mixture with my colleagues too, all bringing different skills to the job, some considerably more relevant than others. MacDonalds Team Trainer, Callcenter worker, Truckers, Forces, Optician, the list really is endless.

Customer Service Background is a good one aswell as dealing with stress and decision making. That is our job in a nutshell. Dont get hung up on the stress bit though, your never alone!
Speed is not a cause, it is a contributory factor. It's incompetent driving that kills!
