For anyone who even vaguely considers a trade or a management job they shouldn’t hesitate to pursue it as it can surprise you how capable you can become despite any reservations you may have.

It could even introduce you to different roles in the industry that you hadn’t realised were available to you or felt where out of your reach.

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

500 new jobs with careers website Indeed

Recruitment firm Indeed has plans to take-on an additional 500 staff over the next two years.

The international job search website made the announcement today that it is generating 500 new jobs for its Dublin HQ.

Recruitment is likely to be in the areas of sales, human resources, marketing, finance, operations and business development.

Last year, Indeed outgrew its offices at Grand Canal Docks, and moved to a new HQ in St Stephen's Green where it currently employs 530 people and has space to accommodate the expansion.

Indeed is based in Japan and operates in more than 60 countries worldwide. The site is visited by 200 million jobseekers monthly. The additional employees are needed to support the company's rapidly growing international business.

Speaking at the announcement Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD said: "Indeed's operation in Ireland has been a tremendous success story and the announcement that they are doubling their staff numbers here is very welcome. An additional 500 jobs is a huge economic boost and vote of confidence in Ireland. We are very keen to support the new dynamic Internet-based services sector and Indeed has blazed a trail in this area. We are sure that we can provide the new skills required and create the right environment for the company's continued success."

Martin Shanahan, CEO IDA Ireland, which supported Indeed’s initial move into Ireland, said: “Indeed first came to Ireland to internationalise its business and to serve its growing customer base.  Ireland has proven to be a superb location for the company to source talent and to expand its footprint into the EMEA market.  Indeed’s drive and ambition has resulted in it being the world’s largest job site and the fact that Ireland plays a very important role in its global operations is a fantastic endorsement of the business environment here.”
