A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

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.
