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.

Life as an Administrative Officer with the Revenue Commissioners

"Revenue is a dynamic and forward thinking organisation."Chad Egan, Administrative Officer - Office of the Revenue Commissioners. 

I studied corporate law and business in NUI Galway and completed my Masters in Commercial Law in UCD. I then went on to complete a Higher Diploma in Information Technology.

Currently, I work in Revenue Audit and Investigations. I carry out e-audits of businesses and have responsibility for a team of auditors in my unit.

The work in Revenue is both challenging and interesting. Revenue is a dynamic and forward thinking organisation. I am given the space to take ownership of my work and I’m encouraged to use and work on my own initiative. No audit is the same, the work is varied and I have learnt a lot since I first joined.

Revenue also has extensive training and support capabilities, which ensure that you are prepared and supported in your role. There is also a really strong culture of working together in Revenue where everyone shares their knowledge and experience.
