Different People, Different Jobs

Hilary Johnson, Tourist
Hilary Johnson has been working in the tourist industry for 20 years. She started as a part-timer when she left college and she liked it so much that she stayed. She explains, 'Most people work hard all year round and look forward to the two weeks when they are able to get away from it all and relax, so it's very important for them to have a good time. Luckily, things don't often go wrong, but when they do, it's my job to get on the phone and try to sort things out. It’s a challenge I really enjoy but what satisfies me the most is when people telephone me after their holiday to thank me for the wonderful time they've had.'

John Orton, Waiter
Many people wouldn't like to be a waiter or waitress, but John Orton says that he couldn't imagine himself doing anything else. He works in a very expensive and smart restaurant in the center of town and over the years he has served some very wealthy and well-known people. 'What I love more than anything else,' he says, 'is the huge contrast between the kitchen and the eating area. Where the customers sit, it's very quiet and peaceful with people speaking quietly and classical music playing softly. Then you walk into the kitchen and it’s very noisy. Then I walk back out to the tables carrying the plates and it’s all peaceful again. It’s crazy!'

Jimmy, DJ
Jimmy was working as a DJ at the weekends even before he left school. Now he works six nights a week and earns quite a good salary from it. 'The best thing,' says Jimmy, 'is that it doesn’t feel like work. I'm so lucky to have been able to turn my hobby into my job. I know many people who hate what they do for a living. I'm always so excited about going to work, buying new CDs and then watching people really enjoying themselves. I have met so many people who I really like. The only negative aspect is working different hours to everybody else, but nothing is perfect!'

The history of the London police

Today there are policemen everywhere, but in 1700 London had no policemen at all. A few old men used to protect the city streets at night and they were not paid very much.

About 300 years ago, London was starting to get bigger. The city was very dirty and many people were poor. There were so many thieves who stole money in the streets that people stayed in their homes as much as possible. In 1750, Henry Fielding started to pay a group of people to stop thieves. They were like policemen and were called ‘Bow Street Runners’ because they worked near Bow Street.

Fifty years later, there were 120 Bow Street Runners, but London had become very big and needed more policemen. So, in 1829, the first Metropolitan (or London) Police Force was started with 3000 officers. Most of the men worked on foot, but a few rode horses. Until 1920 all the police in London were men.

Today, London police are quite well paid and for the few police officers who still ride horses, the pay is even better than for the others.

  • a lot
