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.

I think a career in tax is very rewarding and is an enjoyable career. There are a varied number of jobs which are available to someone with a tax qualification, including private practice, industry, Revenue, lecturing etc. The role of a tax adviser in practice or indeed within Revenue is, in my experience, extremely varied and challenging.

I would advise college students who are considering a career in tax to look into placements offered by their colleges / summer internships. I know from my time spent in private practice that a great number of the bigger accountancy / tax practice offer such positions to college students. This is a great way for such students to get a feel for what a career in tax entails and will help them in making a decision as to whether or not tax is something that they would enjoy.

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Graduate Testimonial: Business & Office Administration

I completed the Level 5 Business and Office Administration in Moate Business College. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the excellent staff of Moate Business College for everything they have done to help me while attending last year.  I would highly recommend MBC to anyone who may be considering attending.  I thoroughly enjoyed my course in Moate Business College and would recommend anyone considering a career in administration to attend this course as this course covers all aspects you will need in your career and the confidence to pursue to your career in this area. 

I am certain anyone who has completed this course will agree with me; from attending this course I now have so many new skills which will stand to me in any career I decide to follow so therefore I recommend that anyone considering this course go and do it.  The business and office administration course gave you an insight into areas you might not have considered as a career by offering various subjects on their course such as legal studies, which was my favourite, spread sheets, book keeping and typing skills.  This allowed us to look in different directions when we completed the course and opened more career opportunities than we had imagined when beginning the course in September.

Moate Business College are part of the Erasmus+ Programme which I was lucky enough to be a part of.  I was chosen to go to Romania to complete my three weeks’ work placement.  I went with a group of eight people from Moate Business College who were also doing courses there in various areas such as nursing, childcare and social studies.  My work experience was very enjoyable.  I worked in an office which helped people with disabilities.

I set up job workshops and created folders and documents to help these people obtain jobs.  As well as working, we also got to do other activities such as skiing, visiting the juvenile detention centre, going to the Opera House and attending some of the parties and events held by the local universities in Timisoara.  I would recommend that everyone apply to take part in the Erasmus+ Programme.  It was an amazing experience that I would happily relive over and over again. 

I could talk all day about how much I recommend Moate Business College and the Business and Office Administration course but I will stop here by saying if you are considering this college in any way possible than apply, you will not be sorry as you will gain massive opportunities and life-long skills.
