If you are looking for a career that keeps you always challenged and interested, then you really should consider a career in tax! The fact that tax is constantly changing helps keep it interesting. Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

New KWETB YouthReach Video

Have you ever wondered what Youthreach is all about? Well now is your chance to find out with the launch of the new KWETB Youthreach promotional video.

Co-Ordinators from each of the seven Youthreach centres in Kildare and Wicklow embarked on a project to promote a deeper understanding of what the Youthreach programme entails and what it can offer to young people in the community for whom mainstream schooling has not been successful.

The video champions the student voice and also gives you an opportunity to hear first hand from Co-Ordinators and Youthreach Advocates who explain the programme in more detail and introduce the student centred and needs based approach to teaching and learning that is at the core of Youthreach provision.
