For women considering a career in forestry, the physical ability required is more fitness and technique rather than strength. If you enjoy variability in your working day; being part of an industry which is not yet hitting its prime; the great outdoors; a love of nature and peaceful surroundings then forestry is for you.

100 new jobs for Dublin with KBRA

The US ratings agency is establishing a European HQ here

US company Kroll Bond has today confirmed plans to establish a European headquarters in Dublin. The ratings agency is expected to employ around 100 people in what will be its first office outside of the US.

The new jobs will come on stream within the next three years. Established in 2010, Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) employs around 275 people in the US. 

Company chief executive Jim Nadler said the company were "grateful" for Dublin's welcoming reception. "We look forward to our growth within Dublin and across Europe", he added.

The chief executive of IDA Ireland said he was "delighted" that KBRA have chosen Ireland over several other European destinations.

"This is another Brexit win for Ireland and indicates that financial institutions that may have previously chosen London now view Dublin as a viable post Brexit solution," Martin Shanahan said.

"With the European economy growing faster than the American economy, now is the time to be optimistic about Europe and Ireland remains unwavering in its commitment," the IDA chief added.

Details of current vacancies and career opportunities with KBRA are available here.
