Within the building materials industry there are opportunities for people with very different backgrounds.

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

90 New Jobs with Business Directory TheBestOf

Independent web directory franchise 'thebestof' has announced the creation of 90 jobs across Ireland over the next three years.

There are currently four franchises across the country. An additional 40 franchises are to be created over the next three to four years.

TheBestOf is a business directory with local events listings, news and jobs. The company won the Best Newcomer award at the Irish Franchisee Awards 2015. It was launched in 2005 as the first independent web directory in the UK.

TheBestOf launched in Ireland nine months ago. Maynooth-based entrepreneur Paul Teahan acquired the master franchise for Ireland and commenced operation last October. Four more franchises have since been created. As well as the 90 direct jobs, the company said it hoped to generate an additional 450 jobs indirectly.
