The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Allianz Worldwide Care Recruitment Fair

Health and life insurer Allianz Worldwide Care is holding a recruitment fair in Dublin this week to help fill 120 vacancies across a number of departments

The event will take place on Wednesday, 28 January 2015 from 3pm to 8pm at The Gibson Hotel, The Point Village, Dublin 1.

The recruitment event follows the announcement of 100 jobs in December 2014. The company is now urgently seeking client-focused candidates to join its claims, helpline and client services teams, located at Park West Business Campus, Dublin 12.

Allianz is interested in meeting candidates with English only, but also has a particular requirement for applicants who are fluent in one or more of the following languages:

  • Italian
  • French
  • German

“We invite anyone with the relevant skills and languages who is interested in joining a fast-paced, multinational company to come and speak to us at The Gibson Hotel on 28 January,” said Cusack. “We offer a multicultural, client-focused environment where people can develop long term careers.
