To work as a forester in Coillte you need to complete a degree/diploma in forestry. A keen interest in forestry and forest related businesses is essential. Strong business and IT skills are also important. This job is for someone who is an outdoor person, who loves nature, enjoys walking and doesn’t mind the weather. A driving licence is very helpful as you travel a lot.

You shouldn’t be afraid of a change as being a forester is a continuous learning process. This job is not about quick rewards. The life span of the forest is at least 40 years and your knowledge, confidence and work experience comes with years. And although it sounds very challenging, this job offers very good career opportunities, possibility of further education, great working conditions and financial stability.

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.
