You need to be hard working, enjoy the outdoor life regardless of the weather and must be willing to work as part of a team at all times.

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

150 New Jobs with Clavis Insights

Dublin-based e-commerce company Clavis Insights has announced plans to create 150 new jobs over the next two years, following a $20m investment.

The company provides analytics tools for companies selling online which helps clients to track and analyse their online sales, as well as compare their performance to competitors.

Clavis Insights includes Tesco, Unilever and Nestlé amongst its list of customers. The company will announce a $20m equity investment from Californian venture capitalist firm Accel-KKR, which Clavis said would be used to fund the further expansion of its global business.

Clavis plans to create 100 new jobs in Ireland to support this expansion, with around 50 further roles being established across its offices in Boston, Shanghai and London.

The Irish operations are home to the company’s development and delivery centres as well as being its global headquarters. Many of the new positions will be on the software development side, with additional roles in sales, customer service, and marketing.
