What are your interests?



The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Financial Services

Financial Services

We are all familiar with the high street banks and building societies visible in towns and cities around the country, but Ireland is also recognised internationally as a centre for commercial financial services.

Financial services are the broader range of supports and services the financial sector requires to manage money and facilitate transactions. These include fund management and administration, portfolio management, underwriting, financial advice and credit card companies.

A seemingly niche financial series sector with a particularly large presence in Ireland is aircraft leasing and financing.
