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 most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while 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.

Grants & Finance

The Irish League of Credit Unions reports that nine out of ten parents support their child through third-level education, contributing an average of €428 a month. When tuition and registration fees are added into the mix, the average cost of going to college in Ireland is reported to be almost €10,000 a year. The latest Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) Cost of Living Survey found that the average cost for students living away from home in Dublin is €11,766 per year.

Every year around 20% of students drop out of college, often due to financial pressure, yet, only one-third of students are eligible for the full SUSI student grant.

It is well worth taking a look at the other opportunities available to supplement costs in some way. In this area, you will find useful information on Student Finance, Disability and Financial Support, and Scholarships and Award Schemes.
