Do not go into teaching solely for holidays, and definitely not if you want to be rich! You need to like children be patient, kind and be able to work with many types of people.

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.

100 New Jobs on the way with viagogo Group

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today announced that the viagogo Group, which operates, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, intends to double its workforce in Ireland over the next three years. The development will bring staff levels from 100 to over 200 employees.

The viagogo Group has also expanded the scope of roles available in Limerick to include international customer services, sales, software development, finance and operations.

The company is currently recruiting for a number of roles, from German-speaking customer services associates to software developers.

The jobs are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The Minister opened the viagogo Group’s new state-of-the-art Operations Centre in Limerick with Oliver Wheeler, Global Head of Communications for the viagogo Group, who commented: “We opened in a temporary location in Limerick last year and were overwhelmed by the level of local talent and the support from organisations such as the IDA. We already employ a hundred people in Limerick and, now that our new purpose-built Operations Centre is ready, we plan to hire at least a hundred more over the next three years.”

Speaking at the event Minister Bruton said: “At the heart of our jobs plan is supporting job creation in every region of the country, to ensure that the recovery is secured and felt by people right across Ireland. Today’s announcement that viagogo, a fast-growing, born-on-the-internet company, is expanding its operations in Limerick and creating 100 extra jobs is a great boost for the Mid West and a great example of what is possible through our regional jobs strategy. I am determined that through solid implementation of our plan we can secure the recovery and support more projects like viagogo across the country. I wish all at viagogo every success with this project”.
