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 Sinead O'Hara from Civil and Public Service Jobs to give some advice for people considering this job:
First, I would say that the person should give some thought to what Department they may be assigned to. If, for example, one has a particular interest in environmental issues, then obviously this Department is ideal for them.
The Departments in the Civil Service cover so many aspects of life, and economic and social activity that I think there is choice for everyone. I would also encourage people to think about why they are considering the job - do they see long-term career prospects in it, or maybe they see it as a means to make a contribution.
At the end of the day, service to the public is what a career in the Civil Service is about.

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.
This course will teach students how machines and other mechanical systems work and how they are designed and controlled - how the gear box, clutch and engine in a car operate, how medical devices are fabricated and designed. What the key properties of the materials used in the manufacture of these components are. What methods are used to fabricate and control these products.
The workload is balanced between approximately 50% formal lectures and 50% laboratories and workshop practice. A typical week has anything from twenty-seven to thirty hours of instruction. Tuition is given on the latest CAD packages and leading edge CNC turning and milling machines.
