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.

Creative?
Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

SmashFly to Create 70 Jobs in Belfast

US Software solutions firm SmashFly opening new Belfast office creating 70 new jobs.

SmashFly to Create 70 Jobs in Belfast

As part of its first expansion outside of its native US, SmashFly Technologies has officially opened a new office in Belfast to provide its software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering for some of the world’s largest companies.

The investment is expected to create 70 jobs and will contribute more than £3m annually in salaries to the Irish economy, helped by Invest NI offering £455,000 towards the creation of the new roles.

The team will include software development engineers, with a focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), but will also function as a full-scale sales, marketing and operations hub for UK and European expansion.

The Boston-headquartered company said that the hiring process will look to bring in both graduate and experienced engineering roles, with a focus on AI and GDPR compliance.

The company’s software has proven particularly useful for large organisations such as JP Morgan and PwC, which use its software for recruitment to identify possible candidates before anyone has even applied for a role.

SmashFly announced in February of this year that it had experienced 2017 year-over-year customer growth of 47pc, an increase of 68pc of system users, having added clients including Toyota, PSA Airlines and Staples.
