Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Kieran Magee from Teagasc to give some advice for people considering this job:

Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work.  They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.

Education is very important.  It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.

The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

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.

eBECS Announces 100 jobs in Ireland

eBECS, a DXC Technology Company and award-winning Microsoft Gold Partner  announced it will invest in the creation of 100 new tech jobs, in Ireland.

eBECS first established operations in Ireland in 2016 serving its clients across the UK and Ireland. eBECS specialises in delivering Microsoft business applications and has announced the expansion of their presence in Ireland with an additional 100 jobs.

We feel the ability for our staff to work from home, or anywhere within Ireland provides staff with a unique work/life balance.”

Sam Dharmasiri, eBECS Sales Director said "Ireland is a significant market for eBECS, so I am delighted that eBECS have decided to further expand operations in Ireland, with the creation of an additional 100 jobs.  I really appreciate the support of the IDA, and I look forward to eBECS’s continued success in both the UK and in Ireland”.
