The job that I do is highly specialised and the skills that I am required to have to do my job can only be acquired in our restaurant. However, by taking a job in McDonald's you are opening a career path to use those skills anywhere - the skills you acquire are very transferable. It doesn’t matter where you start, the opportunities are there.

Naturalist 
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.

New Surgical Innovation Centre launched in Cork

The Instruments Division of Stryker Corporation officially opened its new Surgical Innovation Centre in Cork today.

The Innovation Centre, which features unique design and collaboration workspaces, state-of-the-art prototyping and test facilities, and a simulated operating room, is the first of its kind in Ireland. The centre will focus on the development of new technologies and products to improve patient safety and outcomes during surgery, and increase operating room efficiency across multiple surgical specialties including neuro, spine, ENT and orthopaedic surgery.

Constructed around human-centred design principles, employee wellbeing and a highly efficient and sustainable building design, the centre will allow research and development teams and surgeons to collaborate globally in the development and evaluation of new surgical approaches, product concepts and complete procedural solutions in a simulated surgical environment.

Stryker’s R&D infrastructure in Ireland is underpinned by strong partnerships which the company has developed over many years with its Irish university research partners and medical schools.
