I would advise those considering the job to be patient and to be good at what you are doing and when the opportunity comes to join An Garda Siochana just take it!.

If you are part of a minority group in Ireland and considering joining An Garda Síochána then my advice to you is to go for it because as a foreign national working in the organisation I promise there is no discrimination in An Garda Síochána.

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.

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.
