I would strongly recommend a career in tax to any students who are considering it. Tax professionals are in high demand from employers and can add real value to any business. It is a challenging and rewarding career which can place you at the heart of business decision making. It can also be an excellent springboard to other careers in finance.

Just recently a new Chief Financial Officer was appointed to Irish Distillers who was formerly the Pernod Ricard Group tax director! Also do your research about the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification – from my own experience, the course is very practical and relevant to my day to day job. It provides a structured framework for achieving the knowledge of tax law and skills required to be an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

80 Jobs with New Avoca Store in Meath

Avoca's new owners Aramark, are set to roll out a 12th Avoca store, this time in Co. Meath.

News of the new store from the upmarket food and fashion retailer comes just two months after being bought by US catering giant Aramark.

The new store is to be located in Dunboyne, Co Meath. It is currently being developed at a cost of €3m and will generate 80 jobs when it opens next autumn.

Avoca managing director Simon Pratt said the outlet will be the company's "most ambitious to date". He added that "the location is superb and will attract consumers from west Dublin, Meath, Kildare and beyond, looking to enjoy the Avoca experience". The four-acre site will have 35,000 sq ft of retail space, split between a café, food market and mixed retail, as well as parking for 300 cars.

According to Avoca, the site, adjacent to the M3, is within 30 minutes' travel time of a population of more than one million people. Last year Aramark agreed a deal to pay €60m for the Avoca business.
