Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Life as an Administrative Officer with the Revenue Commissioners

"Revenue is a dynamic and forward thinking organisation."Chad Egan, Administrative Officer - Office of the Revenue Commissioners. 

I studied corporate law and business in NUI Galway and completed my Masters in Commercial Law in UCD. I then went on to complete a Higher Diploma in Information Technology.

Currently, I work in Revenue Audit and Investigations. I carry out e-audits of businesses and have responsibility for a team of auditors in my unit.

The work in Revenue is both challenging and interesting. Revenue is a dynamic and forward thinking organisation. I am given the space to take ownership of my work and I’m encouraged to use and work on my own initiative. No audit is the same, the work is varied and I have learnt a lot since I first joined.

Revenue also has extensive training and support capabilities, which ensure that you are prepared and supported in your role. There is also a really strong culture of working together in Revenue where everyone shares their knowledge and experience.
