Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Ford Offering up to 50 Jobs for Technicians and Apprentices

Women are being invited to apply for up to 50 "rewarding" jobs in the motor industry in an attempt to address the male-female imbalance.

A number of Ford dealers are looking to recruit as many as 50 new technicians and apprentices to help meet a high level of demand for servicing and maintenance of their vehicles  Apprentice candidates will qualify for the brand's master technician training programme at its academy in Naas, Co Kildare.

 

As well as taking on new, unqualified apprentices, some dealers are hoping to recruit trained technicians with "cutting-edge software, electronic and electrical skills".

David Pimlott, director of customer service at Ford Ireland, says: "This is a fantastic opportunity to join Ireland's biggest network of car dealerships. Our dealers would be delighted to receive applications from young ladies who might be interested in a career with the Ford network. 

"We have some females working in the technical teams, but they are very much in the minority, and we would love to redress that balance in this latest intake."  Anyone interested should visit www.ford.ie/experience-ford/technician-recruitment.
