A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

150 jobs for Kildare with food company Dawn Farms

Dawn Farms has today announced a €25m investment which will create 150 new jobs over the next five years at its plant in Naas, Co. Kildare.

The investment is focussed on enhancing the company’s R&D capabilities at its Meat Science and Innovation Centre in Naas, where it has been based for 32 years.

Dawn Farms is one of Europe's leading suppliers of cooked meat ingredients to international foodservice chains. The new jobs will bring employment at the company to 780 people by 2022.

Job roles will be at graduate level and above, with opportunities for:

  • food scientists
  • meat technologists
  • those with culinary expertise

Speaking at the launch, CEO of Dawn Farms Larry Murrin said "What we will be doing is increasing the resources at the innovation side of the business and the science side of the business. "And over a relatively short period of time, 2-3 years, that in turn will generate additional manufacturing and service jobs right across the business so we see the total job add on of being around 150."

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
