An essential prerequisite to a career in tax is obtaining the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification. Due to the varied and hands on nature of the work in Taxand Ireland’s office, I have found working in tax very beneficial when preparing for the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) exams and conversely, I have found the knowledge I have acquired as part of the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) course has assisted me massively in my day to day work with Taxand Ireland (William Fry).

Social?
Social 
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.

330 Jobs announced for Donegal with Pramerica

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton TD today announced plans by Pramerica Systems Ireland to expand its operation in Donegal creating 330 new jobs over the next three years, with potential for further growth in the longer term.

The new job opportunities will include:

  • Senior IT managers
  • Project managers
  • Business analysts
  • Data scientists
  • Actuaries
  • Accountants and
  • A wide range of technology support and professional services roles.

The company will build a new, state-of-the-art, eco-friendly office campus near its current location in Letterkenny, County Donegal to accommodate the expansion.

Pramerica is a professional shared services and technology subsidiary of U.S.-based Prudential Financial, Inc. (PFI).

Further details of New Opportunities at Pramerica, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal can be found here.

"Pramerica is delighted that we have reached this historic milestone just 15 short years since we launched our business in Letterkenny with eight employees,” said Caroline Faulkner, senior managing director and chief information officer at Pramerica Systems Ireland.

“With Ireland’s rich pipeline of talent and favourable work environment, now is the ideal time for us to make an investment in a new campus facility.”

The new site is approximately one kilometre from Pramerica’s existing facility in Windy Hall, within the same business park. The first of two construction phases will begin during Q4 of 2015 and will be completed by summer 2017. Occupancy of the 135,000-square-foot facility, which could eventually accommodate up to 1,800 staff members, is tentatively scheduled to open in mid-2016.

“We currently employ more than 1,200 people who are dispersed in four buildings. The new facility will bring them together in a single location,” Faulkner said. “In addition, it will give us the space we need to bring on approximately 330 new staff members over the next three years.
