If you are looking for a career that keeps you always challenged and interested, then you really should consider a career in tax! The fact that tax is constantly changing helps keep it interesting. Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.

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.
