Realist?
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.

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.
