Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.


If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.


Believe in yourself and go for it!


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.

Let us showcase Chartered Accountancy at your School

Did you know that about a third of Chartered Accountancy students decide to pursue their career while in second-level education?

Many of our members speak in their local schools about pathways and opportunities within the profession.

The feedback from these talks is very positive - students seem to particularly value the opportunity to hear about members' diverse career paths and to ask questions directly.

If you are interested in having a volunteer give a presentation at your school please get in touch today here.

We have additional information about these visits and resources available on our website

We believe that Chartered Accountancy offers a stimulating and rewarding career for ambitious students. 98% of our 24,500 members are working, in over 90 countries worldwide.

Chartered Accountants are Ireland’s leading business professionals and work in all business sectors – from science and technology to agribusiness and finance. Many leading companies have a Chartered Accountant as their Financial Director or Chief Executive and all of the top ten accountancy firms in Ireland are Chartered.
