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.

Accenture Ireland Skills to Succeed initiative

New Accenture Ireland Skills to Succeed initiative aims to help 10,000 young people develop job and entrepreneurial skills.

Accenture is helping 10,000 young people to develop job and entrepreneurial skills. The professional services company has launched its ‘Skills to Succeed Academy’ which aims to equip young people by helping them gain the skills needed to get a job or to build a business.

Launched in partnership with the Department of Social Protection, the S2S academy is a free, interactive online training programme, developed to give those aged 15-24 the skills and confidence to take ownership of their career development.

Speaking at the launch, Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar said “The Skills to Succeed Academy is an excellent example of the public, private and charity sectors coming together to help young people develop a career or start a business. It’s about giving people a helping hand to make the most of the many opportunities out there”.

Minister Leo Varadkar got to see the S2S Academy in action at Youthreach Blanchardstown.

Alastair Blair, country managing director at Accenture Ireland said “By bringing together the best of technology and training from across Accenture and our partners, we have built an online system to help young people get a job and sustain long-term employment”.

About Skills to Succeed

The S2S academy delivers an online learning programme through a number of local employment support bodies who have come together with Accenture Ireland as delivery partners. Partners involved in the programme include: the Department of Social Protection, FIT (Fast Track To IT), Eco Unesco, Jobcare, An Cosán, Junior Achievement, CareersPortal and Business in the Community Ireland.

The programme uses virtual coaches, gamification and simulations to help users navigate their career paths while equipping them with the skills they need to find long-term employment - for example, tailoring CVs to job opportunities, honing interview techniques and understanding what is required to stay employed. In announcing the initiative, Accenture Ireland confirmed that the academy is based on the Irish education system, and includes support resources relevant to the local job market.

The Skills to Succeed online learning programme is available at at www.s2sacademy.ie
