--- Quote from: IanB on February 22, 2024, 04:04:05 am ---To work with PLCs and PLC programming, that would partly be office based, since programming a PLC is mainly working with a computer to enter and upload the program. On the other hand, commissioning and troubleshooting would require working on site, and again perhaps long hours, but this would be not be the whole time. Some people can find the travel and site work enjoyable, as it provides a break from routine.

If you're really lucky, the "office" might be your home, particularly post-Covid where that style of working has become more acceptable.  I know several guys who work with IEDs (power system control, not the exploding kind) who are on-site 1-2 days a week and work from home the rest of the time.  It really depends on the employer, and for the OP may mean accepting slightly less pay in exchange for far more convenient working conditions.

Oh, and for the OP: If you end up WFH and your partner also WFH you may actually end up appreciating getting out of the house a few days a week :-).
