I would highly recommend this job but I’d say to start taking insurance exams as soon as possible and get them done while you’re young.

I’d also recommend talking to as many people in the industry to see what area of insurance you want to go into i.e. Insurer, Broker, Loss Adjuster etc. – they’re very different!

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Ryanair Recruitment Days

A major recruitment campaign is underway for Ryanair, which is seeking to fill hundreds of cabin crew positions in Ireland.

Dalmac, the airline's official training and recruitment partner, is holding another recruitment day already this year in Dublin on March 11th and also in Belfast on March 8th.  

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work in various airports across Europe including Ireland, Ryanair said.

No previous cabin crew experience is required of applicants, but they must be over 18, between 5'2 and 6'2 in height, "and it helps if you are hard-working, flexible, outgoing and have a lively personality," according to Dalmac.

Successful applicants undertake a six-week training course, which they must pay for themselves - though no fees are payable by those who fail or drop out.

The airline is growing at a fast pace, now carrying over 106 million passengers a year with a further 350 Boeing 737s on order.

"You can typically expect to earn approximately €1,000-€1,400 per month after tax in your first year depending on base location," Ryanair says.

Dalmac had a "fantastic response" to its recruitment campaigns for the airline in 2015, its Head of Recruitment, Niall Gleeson commented. "We are now returning to fill hundreds of positions; this is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing industry.”

Potential candidates should register their interest on Dalmac's website here or contact 01 843-7781 ahead of the recruitment days.
