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.

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.

200 New Jobs for Limerick with Regenron

Leading science-driven biopharma company Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, has today announced that it is investing an additional $350 million in its Limerick Industrial Operations and Product Supply (IOPS) bioprocessing campus, which will add another 200 jobs.

The development brings the total expected job creation in the Limerick area to 500 jobs and investment to $650 million by the end of 2017.

The company acquired the former Dell Computer facility in Limerick and achieved planning approval in April 2014 for its first IOPS site outside of the United States. When the investment was initially announced in December 2013, a $300 million investment with 300 jobs was planned for delivery by the end of 2016. With this expansion of scope, the Limerick IOPS campus will house the largest-scale bulk biologics production facility in Ireland.

With approximately 300 full-time employees, 200 contingent workers and 550 construction workers in place, recruitment is underway to bring on additional full-time, high-end specialist jobs in commercial manufacturing, process sciences, quality assurance/control and various support functions for scientists, chemists and technicians. At peak, 1,200 contractors were onsite to support development.

Regeneron’s 400,000 square foot, state-of-the-art biologics production facility in Limerick is now operational with the first production line on track to enter validation before year end 2015.

In addition to IOPS significant operations in Limerick, Regeneron also has a growing multi functional team in Dublin supporting its business in Europe. Regeneron’s total headcount in Ireland is expected to approach 550 by the end of 2017.

The company has worked closely with the Department of Jobs and IDA Ireland on the development of its operations in Ireland.
