If considering a job in this field I think its best to have a therapy background or a caring background. Be prepared to work hard, it takes alot of effort to help create the perfect environment for others to relax in. Work well with others and help your collegues it makes for a friendly workplace and you never know when you will need their assistance. An interest in sales and marketing would also be avantageous, as you must be competitive with other spa's offerings.

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.

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.”
