Try and get as much practical experience before entering the job as possible.

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.

85 New Jobs for Swords with JD Weatherspoon

UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon is creating 85 new jobs when it opens its fourth pub in Ireland, in Swords, North Dublin.

The pub will be called The Old Borough and “will specialise in real ales, as well as craft and world beers, serving a wide range of different draught ales, as well as bottled beers, including those from local and regional brewers,” Wetherspoon said. It is due to open its doors this week following an extensive refurbishment.

JD Weatherspoons already run three pubs in Dublin: The Three Tun Tavern in Blackrock, The Forty Foot in Dun Laoghaire and The Great Wood in Blanchardstown.

It will open a fifth pub in Cork in September and has bought a site in Waterford. It is also believed to have site in Carlow under consideration.

Weatherspoons recruit for their new pubs six to eight weeks before they are due to open. You can search and apply for vacancies here.

If the pub in which you would like to work does not have any vacancies listed, it may have finished recruiting. There is a facility to sign up for e-mail alerts. You will then be contacted by e-mail, when pubs in your area are next recruiting.
