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.

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
