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.

I think a degree or background in Finance is important. Work experience in the Finance Industry was useful for me to make the move between a banking role and moving to a Group Treasury role in a company, and most of my colleagues have also worked in Investment Banking prior to this.

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.

Other Student Financial Supports

There are other sources of financial support besides the SUSI grant scheme that are worth exploring. All are based on particular eligibility criteria.

The Student Assistance Fund

The Student Assistance Fund provides financial assistance for full-time higher education to students who are experiencing financial difficulties whilst attending college. Students can apply for assistance to help them with either temporary or ongoing financial difficulties. The Student Assistance Fund can be accessed in addition to the student grant. Students in need of financial support make application in their college for assistance under the Fund. To assess your eligibility for the Fund you need to be aware of the main conditions of the programme.

Note: The Student Assistance Fund is not available for Further Education / PLC courses.

Check your eligibility for the Student Assistance Fund using the 6-step guide available on Student Finance

Credit Union Education Loans

Credit unions offer education loans to members, either for the support of members themselves or for a son or daughter. Whilst a full-time course in higher education is generally the prerequisite for consideration, some credit unions may offer finance to support participation in other types of education and training. Credit union education loans are often offered at a cheaper interest rate than other types of loans.

Education Grants/Bursaries - Some Credit Unions provide an education grant or bursary for students in their catchment areas who are pursuing further or higher education studies.

St. Vincent de Paul Education and Training Bursary

There is help available at local level for clients of St. Vincent de Paul through this fund. The application process varies according to where you live. Generally this fund is reserved for learners who have not been successful with other agencies.
