Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.

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.

60 New Data Protection Jobs for Galway with IDT911

Data protection services company IDT911 is to create 60 jobs with the opening of its European headquarters in Galway at the Galway Technology Centre in the Mervue area of the city. The new positions will be filled over the next five years.

The company provides identity management, fraud monitoring and cyber security services to 17.5 million private customers in the US and Canada as well as to more than 750,000 businesses.

IDT911 was established in 2003 and hopes to generate business in what it says is an emerging market for identity management and data support programmes in Ireland. A recent study by the Irish Computer Society found more than half of Irish companies suffered a data breach in 2014. An EU sponsored study in February found 13% of Irish internet users had fallen victim to online fraud.

IDT911 says it offers protection from emerging cyber threats and resolutions for businesses that have been impacted by fraud.

The company's Chief Operating Officer, Sean Daly, said Ireland and Galway had been chosen as the base for the European operation because of the pool of available graduates with relevant qualifications and the support provided by State agencies.

The announcement has been welcomed by Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton who is in Galway today for one of the Government's Regional Jobs Forums.

Details of career opportunities with IDT911 are available here. Open positions for the Galway operation have not yet been added.
