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.
