Some of the best people I know still aren’t sure what they want to do, my advice would be to give it a go. If you don’t like it you can always try something else. Whatever is in your heart follow it, don’t be something just because someone in your family is. Whether you’re looking to be a leader, a designer or come up with new ideas and a better way of doing things, make sure it’s something that fills you with passion.

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.

KBC Bank Ireland to Create 100 New Jobs

KBC Bank Ireland expects to create about 100 new jobs in Ireland this year as it continues its retail expansion by opening five additional branches to bring its total to 15.

KBC has already earmarked Naas and Kilkenny as prime locations for their new facilities.

Speaking to The Irish Times, KBC Bank Ireland chief executive Wim Verbraeken said: “Last year we recruited 250 people. This year the number will probably be somewhere around 100. We’re now close to 1,000 and I think we’ll probably plateau somewhere around that total.”

Mr. Verbraeken said KBC’s has targeted 15 branches in total for Ireland. “Once we are at 15 we will consider whether further investments are most appropriate, whether it should be our physical network, digital, online or call centres.”

Current job vacancies with KBC Bank Ireland include:

  • Java Developer
  • Project analyst
  • Company secretary
  • Solutions architect
  • Direct sales advisor
