A keen interest in current affairs, a willingness to travel and an acceptance that this role is a lifestyle choice are all necessary. I believe having lived abroad for a period of time and experiencing different cultures are also an advantage.

Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

FMI Sales bring 24 jobs to Dundrum

Field sales management company FMI Ltd is branching out into specialist telesales, creating 24 full-time permanent jobs for Dublin in the process.

The outsourced sales company will now provide dedicated outbound telesales services as an extension to its field sales service from the FMI Respond call centre, which will be based in a new 2,000 sq-metre space at the firm’s head office in Dundrum.

Established in 1995, FMI Ltd currently employs 50 people at its head office and clients include Electric Ireland, Kraft Foods, Dog’s Trust, PepsiCo, Glanbia and Bulmers.

The telesales operation is intended to provide a cost-effective alternative in situations where field services are not viable and will also be available for seasonal sales activity, distribution audits and research projects. “Being the best in the business is what drives us – that’s why we’ve doubled in size since 2007,” said managing director Charley Stoney. 

The recruitment of 24 new full-time staff is key to delivering that service and interested job seekers can visit the website to find out more.

Naturalist
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.
