I thought the job would solely be to compute an individualís / companyís tax liability but it extends to so much more beyond that. You are not just solely a person or organisationís tax advisor; you are a general business adviser helping them to make key business/commercial decisions.

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.

500 New Jobs in 2016 with Accountancy Firm PwC

Accountancy firm PwC has announced plans for more than 500 jobs in Ireland next year - 300 graduate positions and 200 jobs for fully-qualified professionals.

The company is hoping Irish emigrants will come home to fill some of the roles.

PwC is one of the ‘big four’ accountancy firms. The firm is looking for people to fill positions in:

  • International tax
  • Financial services
  • Data Analytics
  • Cyber security
  • Regulatory compliance

As well as recruiting at home, PwC is hoping to attract Irish people working abroad back to take up some of the roles. Of the jobs on offer.

PwC currently has around 3,000 staff in Ireland and the new jobs will be spread across the company’s seven Irish locations.

“Demand from clients is very high at the moment, the only constraint is people. If you arrived on my doorstep with 200 very experienced people tomorrow morning I would bite your hand off,” PwC’s managing partner Fergal O’Rourke told the Irish Independent.
