Firstly it is very important that you get a third level education as this is a requirement in most hotels for a job in sales. This is the most important step in working in hotel sales. You should gain as much experience within the industry which I found very beneficial.

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.

50 New Jobs for Midlands with AuBren

Midlands-based outsource firm AuBren is set for the creation of 50 new jobs.

The locally based engineering and manufacturing company based in Portlaoise, has confirmed that it will be seeking to hire as part of its expansion plans, with the jobs to be created over three years.

AuBren provides customers with the opportunity to outsource the design and manufacture of systems, sub-assemblies or complete products.

It currently employs a workforce of 35 at the Portlaoise Business and Technology Park and has just signed a major partnership agreement with South African company, Voltas Technologies.

Voltas is an engineering firm supplying and developing sustainable energy solutions.

AuBren Managing Director, Aubrey Nuzum said that the company was looking forward to taking on talented new staff in the midlands. "We supply complex products so there will be a need for people to travel to carry out commissioning and activities like this," he said. "But they would be largely midlands based people and we'd be trying to train up distributors and partners such as Voltas so that the need for regular travel would be minimised."

Specific recruitment details are not currently available.
