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.
We asked Jonathan Pugsley from Sustainable Energy Authority to give some advice for people considering this job:
Communication and team skills are probably the most important aspect overlooked.
In energy management, it is not I that saves the energy, but often it is folks on the ground using the equipment.
It is the energy managers job to educate by communication, the importance of doing the right things, savings then come as a result.

Andrew Dunne, Senior Tax Manager
Andrew Dunne is a senior tax manager with Ernst & Young. He earned his degree in accounting and finance at DCU. His work involves advising clients on their corporation tax affairs. Andrew is also an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).
When I studied tax at college, what first interested me was the fact that tax is based in law and different interpretations can apply to specific legislative references and case law can be used as guidance. I found this aspect really interesting.
I studied Accounting & Finance in Dublin City University (DCU) specialising in Accounting. It was in DCU that I studied a Taxation module and really enjoyed it. I also am an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).
Definitely the tax module in my degree in DCU, and the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification. From the latter, I gained all the tax technical knowledge that I require on a day to day basis, but also the additional skills I need such as communication skills, report writing skills and research skills.
Apart from on the job training in EY, I was required as part of my training contract to pursue the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification with the Irish Tax Institute
