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.

250 Jobs for Ireland with Infosys

Information technology consultant Infosys has announced plans to create 250 new jobs in Ireland over the next three years at its first dedicated research and development centre outside of India, and in a facility providing IT services to its clients.

The expansion will see up to 95 roles created at the R&D centre, which will focus on fintech research, with a further 155 people employed at the company’s new development centre. Infosys already employs more than 250 people in Ireland.

The new jobs will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service.

 “Much like Ireland, Infosys has based its growth on a foundation of education, lifelong learning and a deep commitment to innovation,” chief executive Vishal Sikka said.

“Infosys is already working with clients in Ireland helping them explore new ways of working and advancing, by embracing technology-led innovation. We want to build on this early success. With an ecosystem of like-minded partners in Ireland, we will pursue new ideas and new ways to solve the greatest challenges of our times – the important things that only human imagination and ingenuity can achieve.”

The center will operate an open innovation model, working closely with customers, technology partners, academic institutions and the start-up community in areas of technology, such as blockchain and analytics.

Employees at the company’s new development center will provide technology services to its global and Ireland-based clients in the financial services industry. The work will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service.

The new roles are in addition to more than 250 employees that are already working for Infosys in Ireland. This number includes the employees that have been transferred from AIB to the Infosys Booterstown facility in an announcement that was made in July 2015, and employees working onsite at client locations in Ireland.

Details of careers with Infosys are available here.

The project is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
