I would strongly recommend a career in tax to any students who are considering it. Tax professionals are in high demand from employers and can add real value to any business. It is a challenging and rewarding career which can place you at the heart of business decision making. It can also be an excellent springboard to other careers in finance.

Just recently a new Chief Financial Officer was appointed to Irish Distillers who was formerly the Pernod Ricard Group tax director! Also do your research about the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification – from my own experience, the course is very practical and relevant to my day to day job. It provides a structured framework for achieving the knowledge of tax law and skills required to be an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.

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.
