Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

60 New Jobs with Technopath Clinical Diagnostics

Technopatch Clinical Diagnostics, a software company working within quality control for clinical labs, has announced it’s to create 60 jobs at its facility in Ballina, Co Tipperary.

Having last created a string of jobs back in 2012, Technopath Clinical Diagnostics will be looking to treble its manufacturing capacity at its Ballina plant with an investment of €5m from within the company.

With the jobs to be created over the next two years, Technopath says that this will bring its staff numbers to 180 at its facility, following 18 months of rapid growth.

The company’s two leading quality control and software products, Multichem and IAMQC, are now used in more than 5,000 laboratories in 110 countries globally and achieved notable success in 2015 when it received Chinese regulatory approval to sell its software in the country.
