Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Lorcan Kelly from Irish Tax Institute to give some advice for people considering this job:
|I would strongly recommend a career in tax to any students who are considering it. Tax professionals are in high demand from employers and can add real value to any business. It is a challenging and rewarding career which can place you at the heart of business decision making. It can also be an excellent springboard to other careers in finance.
Just recently a new Chief Financial Officer was appointed to Irish Distillers who was formerly the Pernod Ricard Group tax director! Also do your research about the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification – from my own experience, the course is very practical and relevant to my day to day job. It provides a structured framework for achieving the knowledge of tax law and skills required to be an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Tourism is now the largest industry in the world. This exciting new programme is unique in bringing together the study of both tourism and languages. This four year Honours Degree programme, including a year abroad, offers a high level of linguistic proficiency, cultural awareness and training in business skills for tourism. It will enable graduates of the programme to function in the competitive but rewarding field of international tourism.
Students will receive a dual qualification in languages and tourism. The language modules provide the opportunity to gain professional competence in one or more languages through traditional linguistic studies, contemporary cultural studies and translation studies. Tourism modules introduce students to the business of tourism and explore exciting fields such as Sustainable Tourism and Enterprise Development.
Prospective students should have a keen interest in the culture and heritage of Ireland as well as the countries of their chosen language. The programme is shared equally between the School of Languages and the School of Hospitality Management and Tourism at DIT. This means that graduates will study the language(s) of their choice, and also have a broad level of exposure to the tourism industry. They will benefit from the international reputation of both schools whose experience and knowledge is reflected in the modules which this programme offers.
