As soon as I left school, I started working in an office.

Although I earn good pay as a manager, I don’t get any fulfilment.

When I was 16 I didn’t know what I wanted to do so took the first job I was offered.

But now I know what I should do with my life.

My passion is cooking. I adore watching MasterChef every week and really love recreating their dishes.

Every problem gets a personal reply, usually within 24 hours weekdays.

But I don’t know where to start pursuing this change of career.

I don’t even have the right qualifications.

DEIDRE SAYS: There are many people who wish they could change careers but simply aren’t brave enough.

Good on you for going for it.

You can contact National Careers Service (nationalcareers.service.gov.uk, 0800 100 900) for some specific careers information.
