Do your homework, ask about it - there is lots of infomation out there.  You need to be person centred, social, not afraid to mix and to have an understanding of disability or at least be prepared to learn about it. 

People with an Intellectual Disability  ARE NOT SICK , but they can get sick like everyone else and sometimes I feel people outside don't fully understand this. They don't just need Gods help. They need the help of qualified people that want to understand them so that their needs are met and they have chance to enjoy their life as much as is possible.


Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

100 Jobs for Dublin with Credit Suisse

Investment bank Credit Suisse is opening a trading floor in Dublin.

The company will hire up to 100 staff here before the end of the year.

Credit Suisse bank is moving part of its prime services business, which works with large institutional clients which are investing and trading financial markets, from London to Dublin.

Credit Suisse chief executive of global markets Tim O'Hara said the company would be recruiting staff skilled in risk management, lending and information technology.

The project is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.

IDA Ireland CEO, Martin Shanahan, said the news was a very significant announcement in terms of the development of international financial services in Ireland., "Trading activities have traditionally been exclusively associated with the larger global financial centres and the fact that one of the leading global prime brokers has now selected Dublin as a key hub for this business going forward is highly significant in our view," he said. He added that Credit Suisse will greatly enhance the strong cluster the city has already built up over many years.
