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.

Naturalist?
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists 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.

Career Progression header image

The range of practical skills taught in the three years, coupled with managerial skills, provide the graduate with numerous career opportunities spread across the closely related disciplines of joinery, cabinet making and wood machining. They range from shop floor or operations manager in a large timber production facility suited to managing and making within a small or medium-sized timber product workshop.

The economic recovery and the increased demand for prefabricated building components and for well-priced high quality furniture and joinery products are leading to growth in this field.
