A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Night Classes


Whether you are looking for a sociable way to learn a language or whether you are looking to gain a particular formal qualification, the range of night classes available throughout Ireland should provide you with what you need.

Night classes take place during term time in Education and Training Boards (ETBs), SOLAS Training Centres, schools, colleges and universities throughout the country. The courses on offer vary from centre to centre so it is worth looking around if you have a particular interest you would like to pursue.

In general you need to enrol a few weeks before the course starts. Enrolment takes place around mid September, again in mid-January and, in those centres with a summer term, around mid-March.

Normally, night classes are advertised locally - for example in your local newspaper, community centre, health centre, school, parish hall, etc. Your local ETB, college, secondary school and SOLAS Training Centre will also be able to give you details on the courses that are on in your area and when they begin.
