Hello! I am 10 year old Gwen Rose. I wanted to do this podcast so all the girls, boys and me could learn about what in different jobs really get up to at work all day. Join me in uncovering what the jobs we think we know about are actually like, and discovering some we had never thought about before. Let's get to work!

    The Warbird/Commercial Pilot

    The Warbird/Commercial Pilot

    Bob Davy is a one trick pony; so he says....but we think he is pretty multi-talented! He flies people and cargo all around the world, and he also flies Warbirds - that's ex-military aircraft. When COVID came along, bringing the commercial airlines and tourist flights to a halt, Bob found that he had time to focus on some the other things he loved doing - all to do with airplanes of course!

    Gwen finds out that it's like actually spending time in the heat of the cockpit, what it's like flying at night, and why Bob's pockets have to be done up - can you guess?

    If you are keen on flying and interested in becoming a pilot then Bob will give you a great idea of what that really means, and how you get there.

    The Airfield Manager

    The Airfield Manager

    How do you go from Scotland and secretarial college to the outskirts of London, owning and managing an airfield......via a spot of car dealing?! Catherine's story shows that life can take some surprising turns, and that everything you do can be useful experience to bring to future jobs and roles.

    Gwen gets to hear the incredible history of women in the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) - a British civilian organisation set up at the start of the Second World War with headquarters at White Waltham Airfield in Berkshire, which Catherine now owns and manages.

    The airfield is home to West London Aero Club, three runways, aircraft hangers for privately owned aircrafts, a flying school, aircraft manufacturers, a model railway club, a pub, a party venue, and it is even sometimes transformed into a film set!

    We hope you enjoy this conversation between Gwen and her fascinating guest, Catherine.

    If you'd like to know more about White Waltham you can go to their website here.

    The Process Engineer

    The Process Engineer

    What does cardboard have to do with making coffee?? Gwen’s friend Holly has a Dad with a really important job: without people like him there might not be any chocolate in the shops! Imagine!

    If you like maths and science and working out how things work, you should definitely listen to this episode with Will.
    He gets to buy, make and fix the machines in the factories that make chocolate, coffee and other goodies. You might even be inspired to design your own production line out of cardboard!

    Sara's company helps museums and art collectors to move art and objects - including very big, fragile, or precious things - around from one location to another, in the UK and to other countries all over the world. They ensure things are parcelled up properly, stored safely, installed in their new locations, taken apart and put back together accurately. The even make sure that when they get to customs (passport control for objects) they have all the right paperwork. And they've been doing it since 1885! If you want to find out more, there are lots of case studies and videos on their website: Constantine: Fine art logistics for private collectors, museums & galleries

    It sounds like a pretty serious job. Fortunately Sara really, really loves it. We hope you love hearing all about it too!

    The Poker Player

    The Poker Player

    Can you imagine playing your favourite game EVERY DAY? Even better, if you got really good at it, making all your money from it? It's a risky business, but Leo the Poker Player has done just that, playing at professional tournaments and travelling the world to do what he truly loves.

    He isn't so keen on all the sitting down his job involves, so when Gwen called him he was out walking his dog in the sunshine. We hope you enjoy learning about this most peculiar profession!

    The Art Publisher (Mothers Day Special)

    The Art Publisher (Mothers Day Special)

    Mother's Day Special! Gwen talks to her Mum about what she really does all day while Gwen is at school.

    She learns that there is more to her Mum's job than she realised, and that being a Mum is a proper actual job too.

    If you are lucky enough to have each other and be together, why don't you ask your Mum what she does all day when you aren't with her, whether that is a paid job or being a brilliant full-time Mummy! You might be surprised!

    We also hope everyone enjoys hearing all about the world of print publishing and selling art online.

    A lot of young people want to work in the art world, and it can be hard to make that happen. Gwen's Mum chose to give up her dream of being a painter to find a job that paid her a salary and it took a long time to find her way back to the industry she loved. We hope that this episode gives other creatives some hope and inspiration. Things don't always go the way you planned; but with a few twists and turns, an open mind,  and a bit of luck, you might just end up doing something else you love!
