What are your interests?



Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.



Find Irish teaching vacancies no matter where you are

Turasabhaile.com will offer emigrant teachers wishing to return home the opportunity to apply for jobs in Ireland

A new recruitment initiative has been launched to enable Irish emigrant teachers working abroad to seek and apply for teaching jobs in Ireland. The development of the facility comes due to increased concerns about teacher shortages in the Irish education system, a problem which has grown due to the number of Irish teachers opting to take teaching jobs overseas. The new online portal aims to make it easier for teachers who are considering returning back to Ireland to apply for jobs here.

The website, called www.turasabhaile.com, provides teachers working abroad with the opportunity to register their contact details, their teaching subjects, as well as a list of preferences for their preferred teaching locations. In addition to this, schools can also register their contact details and upload any vacancies they have. The goal is to match teachers to any relevant vacancies, and in streamlining the application process, the hope is to encourage these emigrant teachers to return home. Ultan Casey, a teacher who has been working in Abu Dhabi for the last five years, appreciated that turasabhaile allowed him to interview directly with Irish schools rather than needing to go through a recruitment agency. Ultimately, the website is determined to make the job application process as easy for emigrant teachers as possible.

Turasabhaile endeavours to assist schools in their recruitment drives and to address the teacher shortages forecasted in the post-primary education sector. The site lists the following subjects, specifically:

NOTE: Teachers of other subject areas are also welcome to register.

Once teachers have been matched with relevant vacancies, the normal application, shortlisting and interviewing processes will apply. Skype or similar methods will be used for teachers who have been shortlisted for teaching roles in Ireland. You can download Skype HERE.
