My advice to someone considering a job in a financial institution would be to do some research. There are many areas to choose from in Bank of Ireland, from branch banking to marketing, and there are many starting points to build a lifelong career in a rewarding and challenging environment.

I would recommend that someone should work hard for their Leaving Cert to attain good results. The most important thing about working in a bank is to have good customer service skills, from here everything else will fall in to place.
