  Martin Dunn
  • Qualities & Values - Patience, hard work, like meeting people, enjoy providing good customer service, desire to do a good job for yourself and your employer 
  • Client Skills - Qualification both education qualifications and practical ability to the job
  • Interests - to be generally interested in the field you are working in. I think that it is easy for people to look at the job and think its great and must be loads of fun because you get to go on the high ropes all the time. That is just a small part of the job and generally you are watching others having fun and playing on the activities and you only go on them to do staff training or to do safety checks. You must also be prepared for the paper work that goes along with a job where you are responsible for that safety of people and this cannot be overlooked.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Thursday, September 30, 2010 




Brown Thomas 'looking for 150 temporary workers'The Brown Thomas Group is set to create 150 temporary jobs over the
Christmas period, it has been announced.

Both full and part-time positions will be available in the company's
well-known designer store on Grafton Street in Dublin, as well as at its
BT2 Store, BT2 Dundrum and BT2 Blanchardstown.

A spokesperson told the Irish Examiner that the positions would cover
the festive period.

"The company is recruiting for several functions including sales and
sales support, beauty consultants, cashiers, gift wrapping and stockroom
personnel," she added.

Application forms will be available from the company's website from
today (September 30th).

Earlier this month, the Irish Times reported that Kildare Village is
creating a mixture of over 100 permanent and temporary positions in the
run-up to the festive season. The opening of four new brands at the
designer outlet store will generate 60 positions, while an additional 45
will be created by existing retailers to meet the Christmas demand.
