"life is just too damn short to be hating work"

BF you need to look at a complete career change. Do it now before you hit the recruitment age cap.

In-house probably isn't the right answer for you if you hate the work. Find some other occupation that gives you proper job satisfaction and removes the Monday blues. Even if that means you have to sell up and move to a cheaper area, to reduce your overheads. I can't tell you what that better occupation might be. That's up to you.

Change your lifestyle if need be so you can live well on less. Law handcuffs you financially, so you tend to discount other career options or occupations because they fall so short of replacement income to maintain your lifestyle. Big trap. Don't be a bread head if it stops you enjoying life.

Zucchini, you are right - i hate being a lawyer and do need a career change.

Am probably over most people's idea of ideal "recruitment age" - I came to law later in life and never really enjoyed it. My lifestyle does allow for financial wiggle room, and I am building up savings so I can just go if I need to. Moving not really an option because my o/h works in London.

Probably need to work for myself at something.

How about property management? Resi or comm? There's a lot of legal stuff property management companies need to know and some really don't know it...

recruitment age cap ... that's the age below which they might interview you, and above which your CV goes straight into the circular file.

totally banned but nobody cares much

"That seems like a right piece of pyss and well enough remunerated."

https://targetjobs.co.uk/career-sectors/property/advice/321785-what-salary-can-a-gra duate-property-surveyor-expect

The annual RICS and Macdonald Rewards & Attitudes Survey 2017 has understandably found that the higher the level of RICS professional qualification a professional has, the higher their salary. Of course, these higher salaries may be more attributable to the experience and the responsibilities of individual professionals than their level of membership. However, the survey did find that on average an FRICS earns £72,551, while their non-RICS counterpart earns on average £39,589.
