A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Employment Schemes +


A range of government employment schemes are available for unemployed people who are in receipt of a social welfare payment. Certain schemes are also open to those who are not in receipt of a payment (e.g. Work Placement Programme). The aim of these initiatives is to encourage jobseekers to engage in employment opportunities. 

Skills to Work

Skillstowork.ie is a new Irish Government jobs campaign, aimed at making it easier for jobseekers and employers to understand what Government initiatives are available to them.

If you are interested in training or upskilling, you can complete a quick and easy questionnaire to find out which of five Government initiatives - Springboard, Momentum, JobBridge, JobsPlus and Skillnets best suits you.
