Since its launch in September 2014, I have been the principal contributor to The Times’ weekly column, At the Coalface, which focuses on people engaged in interesting and unusual careers. We have covered a fascinating range of jobs, from a tea taster for Tetley’s to a spacecraft structures engineer for Airbus Defence and Space. It has inspired passion for encouraging young people to make the right choices at an early age so that they will be able to fill some of the extraordinary opportunities that are open to them in the modern economy.
