Learn as much as you can in any situation that presents itself. Never be afraid to try something even if it scares you to do so. And give it all you have. Be a good listener and a good communicator and be fair.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

125 Jobs for Donegal with SLM Eire Teo

Manchester digital marketing company SLM Connect is to establish a new base at Gaoth Dobhair Business Park in Co Donegal that will employ 125 people.  

The new company, SLM Éire Teo, will offer contact centre and business processing outsourcing (BPO) solutions to its clients from its new facility.

SLM Éire Teo will focus on offering both B2B and B2C service solutions through its marketing activities from Gaoth Dobhair. 

The company plans to begin operating from its new base this summer and will soon begin recruiting with plans to employ 25 people initially and increase its employment numbers substantially in the months following.

Last year, Údarás na Gaeltachta announced that it was to fund a three-year enterprise development action plan to support employment creation at the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park.

“This announcement today illustrates that the provision of an adequately resourced enterprise plan can deliver benefits for all,” said the chairperson of Údarás na Gaeltachta, Anna Ní Ghallachair.

“We have made significant progress in terms of the objectives set out in our enterprise development action plan for the area, we are beginning to see the fruits of our labour, and we look forward to continuing our work and achieving the jobs creation targets we set down.”
