Having left the forces in 2008 to become a UK sales and logistic manager for an import export firm.  We dealt mainly in fresh vegetables.  Our market was the Mediterranean rim.  As a result we fell victim to the various revolutions in North Africa and the banking problems in Europe.  After this I worked as an area manager for Office for  National Statistics.  While doing this I did some research I decided that chimney sweeping was what I was looking for in a career. In 2011 I decided to set up my own business as a chimney sweep in Cambridge.
