Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

How STEM is transforming food production

How STEM is transforming food production

Healthy foods, healthy bodies 

A household name, Keelings in north Dublin is probably best known for providing fruit all year round to supermarkets. But there’s something else they love to grow too: data and business intelligence. Keelings has developed its own software to monitor and manage the various processes involved in growing and supplying fresh produce to retailers.

“It’s a game-changer,” says CEO, Caroline Keeling. ”But we still need human insight, and we will continue to need it even as technology integrates more and more into the business of Produce. Technology development might feel fast now but it is going to get even faster. This will give us more information and we need the skills and expertise to use that information to help us grow and source higher quality produce more efficiently and more cost-effectively.”
