I would strongly recommend a career in tax to any students who are considering it. Tax professionals are in high demand from employers and can add real value to any business. It is a challenging and rewarding career which can place you at the heart of business decision making. It can also be an excellent springboard to other careers in finance.

Just recently a new Chief Financial Officer was appointed to Irish Distillers who was formerly the Pernod Ricard Group tax director! Also do your research about the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification – from my own experience, the course is very practical and relevant to my day to day job. It provides a structured framework for achieving the knowledge of tax law and skills required to be an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).

Administrative?
Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Erasmus study periods abroad are also available for students.

Most graduates work in Landscape Architecture practice, either with private consultancies or in local government. After two years of approved graduate work experience, graduates can sit the Irish Landscape Institute (ILI) professional practice exams leading to full professional membership of the ILI. 

Many of the skills acquired during the Landscape Architecture programme are transferable to other areas. Some graduates progress to work in education (design or environmental science), or as landscape managers with responsibility for the upkeep, care and development of particular sites. Many others progress to further academic study in such diverse areas as spatial planning, environmental resource management or environmental psychology.




Course is the only one of its kind in Ireland. It uniquely focuses on giving you the scientific base on which to build your creative, technical and management skills needed to work in this expanding area.
