To be an engineer, a person must firstly have a degree. Having an interest in what you are working at is always half the battle. Being technically minded is also a great benefit.

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.

100 New Call Centre Jobs for Limerick with Three Ireland

Three Ireland is creating 100 new jobs at its call centre in Plassey, Limerick. The move comes after Three acquired O2 last year, with the jobs acting as a transfer of positions from Mumbai to Ireland.

The new roles will all be call-centre agency roles, handling mainly inbound contacts to Three. It is anticipated that the centre will handle more than 2.6 million calls each year.

With plans to bring the headcount at Plassey to an impressive 450, the company has also spent €300,000 on upgrading the offices, including an expansion of the canteen and hot desks, while it is investing €300m in improving its network nationwide.

Staff in Mumbai now handling customer queries made over the internet. As a result, it means there will be no job losses in the Indian city.

Details of employment opportunities with Three Ireland are available here.
