Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.

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.

American professional services firm Marsh & McLennan has opened a new innovation centre in Dublin today, creating up to 100 highly skilled jobs.

The first of its kind for the company, the innovation centre will be a data and analytics development platform for Marsh & McLennan’s businesses – Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman – delivering industry-leading digital solutions to clients.

With annual revenue of US$13bn and 57,000 employees worldwide, Marsh & McLennan provides analysis, advice and transactional capabilities to clients in more than 130 countries.
