Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

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.
