Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Johnson & Johnson Vision Announces Approximately 100 Jobs and Expansion for Limerick Facility
Johnson & Johnson Vision has announced that it is to create approximately 100 new jobs at its Limerick facility, as part of an expansion investment of about €100 million. The growth will also lead to the temporary creation of roughly 200 jobs while the facility undergoes its construction.

The development will benefit the economy of the region immensely, with Pat Breen TD, Miniter of State for Trade, Employment & Business, labelling the expansion as a "huge vote of confidence in the Mid-West region." The development will see the expansion of what is already the world's largest contact lenses manufacturing plant. Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, has expressed that having a company of Johnson & Johnson's stature make such a commitment to the Limerick region speaks to a bright future for the medical technology industry in the country. He added that it also serves as a testament to the success global companies can achieve in regional locations.

John Lynch, Plant Leader, is confident that the new manufacturing roles, which will be introduced from 2019, will help the company to "bring new, innovative contact lens products to our patients and customers around the world at an industry-leading pace."
