      It changes with demand. At the moment i think you would need to be an engineer in oil and gas, or mining to get some serious monies in, HOWEVER, its not all about how much you earn, its the enjoyment of the job and the lifestyle you can have with it. My uncle is a gas engineer on oil rigs and he has to be away from his family a lot longer then he would like to be, working horrible hours in all conditions.

      I would rather earn 10s of 1000s less, enjoy my job and know i can pop home when i please!

      exactly like Richard said, it’s to do with demand. It used to be within the oil section but as oil prices dropped so did wage!
