I would advise anyone interested in Occupational Therapy to read up on the profession or else try to meet a qualified Occupational Therapist and talk to them about their work.

The internet can be a great resource in getting information. Also information from the universities might indicate if this is a course that is suited to you. A lot of the course work relies on you being a self-directed learner. This makes the course different to other more mainstream/academic courses as the onus is on the student to complete a lot of work independently.

As this is a caring profession an interest in working with people is a must. You also need to be a good communicator as you will be working closely with clients, families and other staff on an ongoing basis.

Organisational skills are essential to enable you to manage a caseload.


The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

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.
