Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Joseph Conboy from Irish Tax Institute to give some advice for people considering this job:
|If you are looking for a career that keeps you always challenged and interested, then you really should consider a career in tax! The fact that tax is constantly changing helps keep it interesting. Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.|

An interest in working and learning in the MedTech and Engineering Sector is the basic requirement.
A Manufacturing Engineer facilitates efficient operations within the production area, to optimise existing processes, implement new processes and to ensure that production goals are met.
Being accepted on this proposed Apprenticeship will require a job seeker to first secure an “Apprenticeship Contract” with an approved organisation / employer.
As details of approved organisations become available, they will be included here.
Each approved organisation will determine the particular salary structure for the apprenticeship, which will be communicated at contract negotiation stage with the proposed candidate.
There will be no difference in rate-of-pay between the time an apprentice spends on-the-job and time in training.
The Manufacturing Engineer Apprenticeship is open to School leavers, production operators and technicians who want to train or retrain in the manufacturing sector and progress along the NFQ to level 7 with any one of the 450+ Medtech companies currently established in Ireland.
The Manufacturing Engineer Apprenticeship now has a commencement date of June 2017.
It is anticipated that both individual companies in the MedTech sector and the consortium will advertise through their websites.
There are many opportunities across the Medical Devices sector in Plastics and Engineering companies for Manufacturing Engineers.
IMDA Director Sinead Keogh said: “Employment in manufacturing will be 6,000 higher this year compared to last. But, skill shortages are emerging and need to be urgently addressed. These new apprenticeships will give people new job opportunities and help drive regional growth. Manufacturing is an integral part of the Irish economy and is the second largest employer with 4,000 businesses, both home-grown and international, employing nearly 160,000 people. ”
