Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Brexit generates 36 new jobs at The Central Bank of Ireland

The Central Bank of Ireland is hiring 36 new staff to focus on Brexit and the specific needs arising due to its impact here. 

The new hires were sanctioned by the Central Bank Commission in June with recruitment due to take place on a phased basis.

The approved increase in 2017 staff numbers will bring total staff to 1,800, including an additional 28 staff to address specific Brexit-related new business needs within existing divisions. These are mainly to support increases in Brexit-related authorisation/supervisory activity, and also to support extensions to the post-crisis regulatory framework.

18 of these 28 job roles have been allocated to supervisory divisions with the remaining 10 roles allocated to the Central Banking pillar.

Recruitment is due to take place on a phased basis, with the hiring process already underway for some of the roles.

Dublin is a major contender for Brexit-related financial services and has been competing with other EU locations. IDA Ireland expects Ireland to win investment from a dozen or more London-based banks. To date, Bank of America and insurer Legal & General have announced Dublin as their chosen post-Brexit EU location.
