I have a PhD in Computer Integrated Manufacturing and make a living as an (industrial) robot programmer.
I am employed in robotics and automation line building.
Whenever I try to describe my work insurance clerks are dumbfounded and unable to classify my occupation as they have a proscribed list of vocations. The nearest that they can find is "Systems Engineer / Manufacturing".
What's more is that my position in the company is in a white collar role as a General Manager.
I have a feeling that I could lay claim to a much cheaper occupational category. I have a doctorate. My profession is Computer Integrated Manufacturing. In a sense, I am a "computer programmer". I am also a manager etc.
What do you recommend as the cheapest insurance classification that would befit my work?
