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.

The three biggest infant formula producers, Abbott, Danone and Wyeth are based in Ireland and manufacturing infant milk for export to markets in Europe, South East Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Canada.  This is an exciting sector to work in with plenty of opportunity from grass root level right through to manufacturing and sales.

Dairy Farming in Ireland is experiencing extraordinary change and growth. From 2010-2016 a further 300,000 cows were added to Irish dairy farms bringing the national herd to 1.4 million cows.

This is an increase of almost 10% on figures for 2016. Much of this milk is processed and manufactured as infant milk.
