Anyone considering this job should be ready to work thoughtfully rather than reactively. Also they should be emotionally present and ready to facilitate meaningful conversation.

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.

20 New Jobs for Swords with telematics company Transpoco

Dublin-based telematics company Transpoco, has announced its intention to double its workforce, creating 20 new jobs in the process.

The announcement comes not long after the firm's launch of a new service to reduce fuel, maintenance and insurance costs in European cars, vans and trucks.

The company created ten new jobs last year at its Swords base, doubling its workforce to 20, as it worked on a new product called SynX, which was the result of a research and development programme supported by Enterprise Ireland.

SynX is a cloud computing-based service which integrates Transpoco GPS software with data from fuel cards to provide cost saving business intelligence.

Chief executive officer of Transpoco, Andrew Fleury, says that fleet managers don't get the full use of GPS technology.

“Fleet managers are not fully exploiting GPS tracking technology, because they are too busy. While they use basic features of GPS, they never really get to the stage of accessing real business intelligence," Mr Fleury said.

"They don’t have time to analyse data from different suppliers, such as fuel and vehicle maintenance. The SynX product automates this analysis and pinpoints key actions that need to be taken.”

About Transpoco

Transpoco has been in operation since 2004, having developed vehicle tracking and expert fleet management solutions, including a GPS tracking system for professional drivers which aims for greater fuel economy.
