10 Employment Traditionally, where are the jobs after A levels?
Banking Retail Local Authorities Armed Forces Catering Technical design jobs Health – auxiliary nursing, ambulance Travel – travel agency, air cabin crew Public services – police, fire officers CREDIT CRUNCH Warning 2009 there are fewer jobs available at the moment, but keep an eye on future trends – there will be skills shortages in some of these areas and the ageing workforce will need to be replaced.
