You should possibly consider studying environmental science or environmental engineering in third level.

You would also need to consider if you would like do quite a bit of driving during your day and to be able to oragnise your own work plans as both these things are important.

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.

Neuda Technologies to Create 200 Jobs Over Next Four Years

New Software Engineering Hub to be established in Athlone

Neuda Technologies to Create 200 Jobs Over Next Four Years

Belfast-headquartered IT company Neueda Technologies is to create 200 jobs over four years with the establishment of a software engineering hub in Athlone, Co Westmeath.

The company will undertake software development services for global telecommunications and financial services clients at their new offices on the Dublin Road, Athlone.

More than 70 members of staff have been hired already with that number expected to grow to more than 80 by the end of the year.

The new roles are almost exclusively for technology specialists including experienced software developers, cloud engineers and agile practitioners.

Neueda Technologies founder David Bole said he was impressed with the standard of personnel applying for roles in the midlands.

“After considering several international locations for our new engineering hub, we opted for Athlone in January 2018 and I can say that we wish we had set up here years ago,” he said.

“With one-third of our current positions already filled, we continue to be impressed with the level of technical and engineering talent available to us in the midlands, particularly considering our very high hiring-bar.
