I would recommend that you enjoy interacting with people and you have the ability to explain technical jargon in layman's terms. You should be focused and structured in your approach to work and you should always be looking to learn new things and be up for a challenge!

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.

DFS furnishes Dublin with a store

DFS furnishes Dublin with a store

DFS the large British furniture chain, is advancing plans to open a store in Dublin in the first quarter of this year. The chain is preparing to enter the market just weeks after Flanagans, one of the largest indigenous players in the market, went bust.

DFS, which has 82 stores worldwide, is likely to create up to 30 jobs at its Dublin store. It has already started offering staff positions on its website click here.

Furniture has been one of the hardest hit areas of Irish retail, as house-building has slowed. Publicly quoted DFS said last month that it was to press ahead with expansion plans, which would create 300 jobs, despite a fall in profits.
